Palo Alto Networks, Inc. has pioneered the next generation of network security with our innovative platform that allows you to secure your network and safely enable the increasingly complex and rapidly growing number of applications running on your networks. At the core of this platform is our next-generation firewall which delivers visibility and control over application, users, and content within the firewall using a highly optimized hardware and software architecture. This platform uniquely offers you the ability to identify, control, and safely enable applications while at the same time inspecting all content for all threats all the time. These capabilities are combined with superior performance compared to traditional approaches, including those found in a UTM or software blade approach. Our approach allows you to simplify your network security infrastructure and to eliminate the need for a variety of stand-alone and bolt-on security devices. Our platform can address a broad range of your network security requirements, ranging from the data center to the enterprise perimeter to the far edges of the network, which includes branch offices and mobile devices.
