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.

Aperture SaaS Security

Allowing you to define granular, context-aware policy control, Palo Alto Networks Aperture gives you the ability to drive enforcement. And the quarantine of users and data, as soon as a violation occurs. This enables you to quickly and easily satisfy data risk compliance requirements, such as PCI and PII. While still maintaining the benefits of cloud-based applications. The use of SaaS applications is creating new risks and gaps in security visibility for malware propagation, data leakage and regulatory non-compliance.

Palo Alto Networks Aperture delivers complete visibility and granular enforcement across all user, folder and file activity within sanctioned SaaS applications, providing detailed analysis and analytics on usage without requiring any additional hardware, software or network changes. Palo Alto Networks Aperture provides complete visibility across all user, folder and file activity. Providing detailed analysis that helps you transition from a position of speculation to one of knowing exactly what’s happening at any given point in time.

Features

Preventing successful cyber attacks. 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. The Palo Alto Networks next-gen security platform reduces cybersecurity risk so that it is manageable and quantifiable, allowing organizations to compartmentalize their biggest threats and focus on business operations.

The Palo Alto Networks next-gen security platform protects your digital way of life by safely enabling applications and preventing known and unknown threats across the network, cloud, and endpoints. The native integration of the platform delivers a prevention architecture that can provide superior security at lower total cost of ownership. Palo Alto Networks Panorama network security management lets you view all firewall traffic, manage device configuration, push global policies, and generate reports on patterns or incidents. All from one central location. Palo Alto Networks Panorama network security management provides static rules and dynamic security updates in an ever-changing threat landscape.

Firewalls

With a few clicks, you gain visibility into the application bandwidth and session consumption. The associated threats, as well as the source and destination of the application traffic. With this knowledge, you can proactively align application usage with your business requirements. Palo Alto Networks malware protections reduce the number of available attack vectors by terminating malware downloads. The blocked malware name, malicious URL or application, and the victim user are logged within the UI, so you have the contextual information needed to apply additional policies, if necessary.

Palo Alto Networks IPS, available within the threat prevention subscription, prevents exploits at the network level, using targeted vulnerability and exploit kit based signatures to thwart multiple variations of exploits and a wide variety of exploit kits. The Palo Alto Networks skilled threat research team, whose job it is to continuously investigate and reverse engineer network and application vulnerabilities, creates these protections and automatically pushes them to all subscribed devices on a weekly and emergency basis, fortifying your network against the latest exploits.

Virtualized Next-Generation Firewalls

Defined as an environment in which you are responsible for the management of all aspects of the virtualization, hardware, compute, networking and security. A private cloud is often considered to be synonymous with your data center, and in fact, many data centers are 100 percent virtualized using VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, KVM or other private cloud technologies. The Palo Alto Networks VM-Series allows you to protect your private cloud infrastructure using application enablement policies while simultaneously preventing known and unknown threats.

The Palo Alto Networks VM-Series supports the following private cloud environments: VMware ESXi and NSX, Citrix NetScaler SDX, Microsoft Hyper-V and KVM/OpenStack. In a public cloud, ensuring your applications and data are kept safe from attackers is your responsibility, and that is where the Palo Alto Networks VM-Series can help. The Palo Alto Networks VM-Series protects your public cloud infrastructure using application enablement policies while simultaneously preventing known and unknown threats. The Palo Alto Networks VM-Series supports the following public cloud environments: VMware vCloud Air, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.
