The end goal of security is to enable your operations to flourish and keep your organization out of the headlines associated with cyber breaches. This means reducing the likelihood of a successful attack. By focusing on preventing successful attacks, Palo Alto Networks Firewall reduces cybersecurity risk so that it is manageable and quantifiable, allowing organizations to compartmentalize their biggest threats and focus on business operations. Palo Alto Networks Firewall protects our digital way of life by safely enabling applications and preventing known and unknown threats across the network, cloud, and endpoints. The native integration of Palo Alto Networks Firewalls delivers a prevention architecture that can provide superior security at lower total cost of ownership. With Palo Alto Networks Firewall — the discovery of a new threat triggers the automated creation and delivery of protection mechanisms to network, cloud, and endpoint environments.
Natively integrated technologies that leverage a single pass prevention architecture to exert positive control based on applications, users, and content to reduce organizational attack surface, that support open communication, orchestration, and visibility, and enable consistent security posture from the network, to the cloud, to the endpoint. Automated creation and delivery of protection mechanisms against new threats to network, cloud, and endpoint environments. Extensibility and flexibility that allows for protection of customers as they expand, move off their physical network, or adopt new technologies. Threat intelligence sharing that provides protection by taking advantage of the network effects of a community of comprehensive global threat data to minimize the spread of attacks. Palo Alto Networks Firewall approach identifies all network traffic based on applications, users, content and devices, and lets you express your business policies in the form of easy to understand security rules.

Palo Alto Networks Firewall classifies all traffic, including encrypted traffic, based on application, application function, user and content. You can create comprehensive, precise security policies, resulting in safe enablement of applications. This lets only authorized users run sanctioned applications, greatly reducing the surface area of cyber attacks across the organization The combination of Content-ID and WildFire provides protection from known and unknown threats. Content-ID limits unauthorized data transfer and detects and blocks a wide range of threats. Palo Alto Networks WildFire identifies unknown malware, zero day exploits, and Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) through static and dynamic analysis in a scalable, virtual environment, and automatically disseminates updated protections globally. Relying on manual response to confront the volume and sophistication of cyber attacks facing organizations has led to predictable results, which will only worsen unless prevention becomes automated.
Complete visibility and precise control: Palo Alto Networks Firewall provide complete visibility into all network traffic based on applications, users, content and devices. Automated security: Innovative features reduce manual tasks and enhance your security posture, for example, by disseminating protections from previously unknown threats globally in near real-time, correlating a series of related threat events to indicate a likely attack on your network, and using dynamic address groups in security rules to avoid updating server IP addresses frequently. The security platform has extensibility and flexibility that allows for protection of customers as they expand, move off their physical network, or adopt new technologies. Today’s security architectures are a result of adding uncoordinated security layers one at a time, making them ineffective in dealing with modern threats. Unlike legacy firewalls that are based on this layered security architecture, Palo Alto Networks Firewall use a unified security design that classifies all traffic into full context before applying one set of flexible security rules in a single pass.
