Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls

Palo Alto Next-Generation Firewalls

Superior by Architecture

Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls are all based on a consistent Single-Pass Architecture, enabling security capability that is unique in the industry. Unlike other firewalls they attempt to fully classify traffic (including user association), and then make all of that classification knowledge available to all control and enforcement options. It’s an approach that allows for precise, flexible control of traffic based on: applications, users, and the information content of the traffic.

Integration with the GlobalProtect™ mobile security service extends policy-based security to mobile devices (whether on-premises or remote) and integration with threat intelligence services keeps information up to date (e.g. URL categories and threat signatures). WildFire™ cloud-based malware analysis environment integration supports a rapid “feedback loop” that enables the firewall to stop advanced threats throughout the attack life cycle.

The simple, straightforward user interface complements the straightforward architecture. Automation and integration into larger systems (e.g. automated provisioning and SDN) is supported by their XML API.

Redefining High-Performance Network Security

Redefining high-performance network security, the PA-7000 Series offers the perfect blend of power, intelligence and simplicity. Power derived from a proven architecture that blends ultra-efficient software with nearly 700 function-specific processors for networking, security, content inspection and management. Intelligence that maximises security processing resource utilisation and automatically scales as new computing power becomes available. Simplicity defined by a single system approach to management and licensing.

Consistent Architecture, High-Performance Versatility

The PA-5000 Series next-generation firewalls prevent threats, and safely enable applications, across a versatile set of high-performance use cases (e.g., Internet Gateway, DC, and SP environments). The series includes the PA-5060, PA-5050, and PA-5020, which are based on the same architectural foundation as all of our next-generation firewalls.

The PA-5000 Series enables you to secure your organization through advanced visibility and control of applications, users, and content at throughput speeds of up to 20 Gbps. Dedicated processing resources assigned to networking, security, signature matching, and management functions ensure predictable performance.

Consistent Architecture, Multi-Gig Throughput

The PA-3000 Series next-generation firewalls prevent threats and safely enable applications. The series includes the PA-3060, PA-3050, and PA-3020, which are based on the same architectural foundation as all of our next-generation firewalls.

The PA-3000 Series enables you to secure your organization through advanced visibility and control of applications, users, and content at throughput speeds of up to 4 Gbps. Dedicated computing and programmable hardware resources assigned to networking, security, signature matching, and management functions ensure predictable performance.

Consistent Architecture for Small Organizations

The PA-500 next-generation firewall prevents threats and safely enables applications. Based on the same architectural foundation as all of our next-generation firewalls, the PA-500 is our smallest rack-mount form factor.

The PA-500 enables you to secure your organization through advanced visibility and control of applications, users, and content at throughput speeds of up to 250 Mbps. Dedicated computing resources assigned to networking, security, signature matching, and management functions ensure predictable performance.

 Consistent Architecture, Compact Implementation

The PA-200 next-generation firewall prevents threats and safely enables applications. Ideal for small organizations or branch offices, the PA-200 form factor is sized for desktop deployments and is based on the same architectural foundation as all of our next-generation firewalls.

The PA-200 enables you to secure your organization through advanced visibility and control of applications, users, and content at throughput speeds of up to 100 Mbps. Dedicated computing resources assigned to networking, security, signature matching, and management functions ensure predictable performance.
