COMPANY OVERVIEW

Founded by security visionary Nir Zuk, Palo Alto Networks offers real innovation in the firewall by enabling unprecedented visibility and control of applications and content – by user, not just IP address – at up to 10Gbps with no performance degradation. Based on patent-pending App-IDTM technology, our next generation firewalls accurately identify applications – regardless of port, protocol, evasive tactic or SSL encryption – and scan content to stop threats and prevent data leakage. Enterprises can for the first time embrace Web 2.0 and maintain complete visibility and control, while significantly reducing total cost of ownership through device consolidation.

AN EXPERIENCED TEAM

The Palo Alto Networks founders, management team and board of directors have been key drivers of some of the most important network security companies and related technologies in the last 12+ years, including the invention of stateful inspection, hardware-based security, and intrusion prevention. The engineering team brings a proven track record in delivering high quality networking and security solutions at companies like Check Point, NetScreen, McAfee, Juniper Networks, Cisco and many others.

PALO ALTO's NEXT-GENERATION FIREWALLS

Palo Alto Networks' next-generation firewalls provide network security by enabling enterprises to see and control applications, users, and content – not just ports, IP addresses, and packets – using three unique identification technologies:

  • App-ID,
  • User-ID,
  • and Content-ID
These identification technologies, found in Palo Alto Networks' enterprise firewalls, enable enterprises to create business-relevant security policies – safely enabling organizations to adopt new applications, instead of the traditional "all- or-nothing" approach offered by traditional port-blocking firewalls used in many security infrastructures.

PALO ALTO's APPROACH TO NETWORK SECURITY

Palo Alto Networks' next-generation firewalls are based on our Single-Pass Parallel Processing (SP3) Architecture, enabling low latency, multi-Gbps performance –while delivering greater functionality than any other type of security device.
