Palo Alto Networks

Palo Alto Networks, Inc. operates a platform that allows enterprises, service providers, and government entities to secure their networks and safely enable various applications running on their networks. The company’s platform comprises Next-Generation Firewall, which delivers natively integrated application, user, and content visibility, as well as control within the firewall through its proprietary hardware and software architecture.

The company also provides Panorama, a centralized security management solution for control of its appliances deployed on an end-customer’s network; and is used for centralized policy management, device management, software licensing and updates, centralized logging and reporting, and log storage. In addition, it offers virtual system upgrades; and subscription services for intrusion detection and prevention, and URL filtering, as well as for protection of mobile users, and protection against modern targeted malware.

Next-Generation Platforms

PA-7050 Series
The PA-7050 protects datacenters and high-speed networks with firewall throughput of up to 120 Gbps and, full threat prevention at speeds of up to 100 Gbps. To address the computationally intensive nature of full-stack classification and analysis at speeds of 120 Gbps, more than 400 processors are distributed across networking, security, switch management and logging functions. The result is that the PA-7050 allows you to deploy next-generation security in your datacenters without compromising performance.

 - 120 Gbps firewall throughput (App-ID enabled1)
 - 100 Gbps threat prevention throughput (DSRI Enabled2)
 - 60 Gbps threat prevention throughput
 - 24 Gbps IPSec VPN throughput
