Palo Alto Networks offers real innovation in the firewall, enabling unprecedented visibility and control of all applications and content—by user, not just IP address—at up to 20Gbps with no performance degradation. Based on patent pending App-ID™ 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. As a result, the firewall is once again able to function as a strategic point of network control. This enables enterprises to safely embrace web-based applications and social media, while maintaining complete visibility and control and significantly reducing total cost of ownership through architecture simplification and device consolidation.
