Your business groups have a seemingly insatiable need for more bandwidth. Recent high profile attacks that use port 80, or SSL to hide, and leverage commonly used applications like FTP and RDP for exfiltration are driving the need to increase your security posture. Which do you choose? Performance or security? Easy – Both.
IT Security teams are often forced to choose between security and performance. See how the unique design of our Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewall addresses this challenge and how it has performed in independent 3rd party testing.
Palo Alto Networks and Avaya™ have partnered to provide high-performance next-generation security solutions for data center networks. The mission critical data centers of today have no tolerance for disruptions in throughput or availability. At the same time, the threats imposed on data centers by modern malware require a security solution that has next-generation firewall intelligence.
Enterprise mobility is changing the ways that people work and the devices they use. It’s also changing the network infrastructure needed to support the devices on business networks. Wireless interfaces are the network connectivity standard for tablets and smartphones, and even some laptops such as ultrabooks and the Apple MacBook Air. As a result, wireless networking is now ubiquitous. It’s found at corporate and branch offices everywhere, including at organizations that have taken conservative positions on wireless networking in the past, such as hospitals, banks, and government offices. With all of this rapid growth, questions arise on whether the proper security is in place to protect the traffic and keep it free of malfeasance and impropriety.
Following the release of WildFire (Palo Alto Networks new feature for combating targeted and unknown malware), we have discovered hundreds of new types of malware that are hitting enterprise networks every day. In this edition of the Threat Review we will take a deep dive into some of the more interesting examples that we have encountered, understand how they work, how they are delivered and then provide the specific best-practices needed to combat the latest trends in malware.
Enterprise Mobility and BYOD trends are causing significant disruption to traditional network security practices. The growth and diversity of mobile device usage combined with the requirement of anytime, anywhere access to applications and data, has presented significant
operational challenges and security risk to the IT organization. Typical legacy enterprise LAN infrastructures were not architected with adequate management, visibility, and awareness necessary to adapt to today’s application security and mobile provisioning requirements.
As organizations deploy multiple security solutions to safeguard corporate networks from wide-ranging threats, it becomes increasingly difficult to perform labor-intensive and error-prone tasks such as risk analysis, change management, auditing and compliance checks. Palo Alto Networks and Tufin® have partnered to help customers increase operational efficiency and reduce risk by intelligently automating firewall policy management.
The theft of credit card data continues to grow at an alarming rate. It is costly to credit card companies and merchants, and it undermines consumer confidence. The Payment Card Industry has developed the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), which includes 12 requirements for protecting cardholder data. Despite substantial investments made in securing their networks, organizations are realizing that being PCI compliant does not mean an enterprise is protected against advanced cyberattacks.
Targeted attacks represent some of the most dangerous threats facing a modern enterprise. While these threats remain relatively rare, they often target your most valuable assets and intellectual property. The use of custom malware and attack strategies also makes them some of the most difficult IT security threats for you to detect. In this episode of the Threat Review, we will analyze a real-world example of a targeted attack exposed by WildFire, including an analysis of the malware industry that supports targeted attacks, and best practices to protect your network today.
Intelligent tablets and smartphones are now the primary personal communications and computing platform for Mobile IT business operations and apps. As a result, IT needs to consider how to provide secure network access to both enterprise and end user owned mobile devices. Moreover, an exponential increase in the number and usage of mobile apps is creating new threat vectors that must be addressed by IT to safeguard mobile devices and prevent data loss.
Modern threats are forcing businesses to fully examine the lifecycle of cyberattacks and advanced persistent threats (APTs). During this webcast we review real world data on cyberattacks and dissect the 5 steps of an advanced attack designed to evade security controls.

Please join, Michael Hamelin - Tufin Chief Security Architect and Mike Schuricht - Palo Alto Networks Product Manager, to learn more about Tufin's comprehensive firewall management and auditing solution - specifically tailored to next-generation firewalls.
Using a Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewall, your security team can strike an appropriate balance between blocking all personal-use applications and allowing them. Secure application enablement begins with first knowing exactly which applications are being used and by whom. This knowledge is then effectively translated into positive control model firewall policies that extend beyond traditional 'allow or deny.' The final component in our solution is giving you the ability to securely enable applications without degrading your firewall's performance.
