Redefining high-performance network security. Palo Alto Networks PA-7000 Series high-performance network security appliances offer the perfect blend of power, intelligence and simplicity. Power — derived from a proven platform architecture that combines an ultra-efficient, single-pass software engine. With nearly 700 function-specific processors for networking, security, content inspection, and management. Intelligence — that optimizes security processing resource utilization and dynamically scales as new computing power becomes available. Simplicity — resulting from a unified approach toward management and licensing. Redefining high-performance network security. The Palo Alto Networks PA-7000 Series of next-generation firewall appliances offers the perfect blend of power, intelligence and simplicity. Power, derived from a proven architecture, blends ultra-efficient software with function-specific processors for networking, security, content inspection and management.
Its intelligence maximizes security-processing resource utilization and automatically scales as new computing power becomes available. The Palo Alto Networks PA-7000 Series offers simplicity defined by a single-system approach to management and licensing. Classifies all applications, on all ports, all the time. Identifies the application, regardless of port, encryption (SSL or SSH), or evasive technique employed. Uses the application, not the port, as the basis for all of your safe enablement policy decisions. Allow, deny, schedule, inspect and apply traffic-shaping. Categorizes unidentified applications for policy control, threat forensics or App-ID development. Enforces security policies for any user, at any location. Deploys consistent policies to local and remote users running on the Windows, MacOS, Linux, Android, or Apple iOS platforms. Enables agentless integration with Microsoft Active Directory and Terminal Services, LDAP, Novell eDirectory and Citrix.
Palo Alto Networks PA-7000 Series Architecture
The Palo Alto Networks PA-7000 Series is powered by a scalable architecture. For the express purpose of applying the appropriate type. And volume of processing power to the key functional tasks of networking, security, content inspection and management. The Palo Alto Networks PA-7000 Series chassis intelligently distributes the computational processing demands of networking, security, threat prevention. And management across three subsystems, each with massive amounts of computing power and dedicated memory. The Network Processing Card is dedicated to executing all packet-processing tasks including networking, traffic classification and threat prevention. Each NPC has up to 67 processing cores. All focused on the singular task of protecting your network at up to 20 Gbps per NPC. Scaling the throughput and capacity to the maximum 200 Gbps on the Palo Alto Networks PA-7000 Series. Or 120 Gbps on the PA-7050 is as easy as adding a new NPC.
Prevent Known And Unknown Threats
Blocks a range of known threats, including exploits, malware and spyware, across all ports, regardless of common threat-evasion tactics employed. Limits the unauthorized transfer of files and sensitive data, and safely enables non-work-related web surfing. Identifies unknown malware, analyzes it based on hundreds of malicious behaviors, and then automatically creates and delivers protection. Deploys consistent policies to local and remote users running on the Windows, MacOS, Linux, Android, or Apple iOS platforms. Enables agentless integration with Microsoft Active Directory and Terminal Services, LDAP, Novell eDirectory and Citrix. Easily integrates your firewall policies with 802.1X wireless, proxies, NAC solutions, and any other source of user identity information. Threat prevention throughput is measured with App-ID, User-ID, IPS, antivirus, anti-spyware and Disable Server Response Inspection (DSRI) features enabled.
