Prevent security breaches. Preemptively block known and unknown malware, exploits and zero-day threats with the unique multi-method prevention approach of Traps advanced endpoint protection from a single, lightweight agent. Automate prevention. Automatically reprogram your endpoints to block known and unknown threats — without human intervention — using threat intelligence gained from our global community of customers and partners across endpoints, networks and SaaS applications. Protect and enable users. Empower users to use web, mobile and cloud-based applications without fearing cyberthreats. Protect users from inadvertently compromising their systems without depending on burdensome virus scans. Palo Alto Networks Traps secures endpoints with a unique multi-method prevention approach. Palo Alto Networks Traps replaces legacy antivirus and secures endpoints with a multi-method prevention approach that blocks malware and exploits, both known and unknown, before they compromise endpoints, such as laptops, desktops and servers.

Multi-method malware prevention. Palo Alto Networks Traps prevents malicious executables rapidly and accurately with a unique, multi-method approach to prevention that maximizes coverage against malware while reducing the attack surface area and increasing the accuracy of malware prevention. This approach combines several prevention methods to instantly block known and unknown malware from infecting a system. Multi-method exploit prevention. Palo Alto Networks Traps takes a unique approach to preventing exploits. Instead of focusing on the millions of individual attacks or their underlying software vulnerabilities, it focuses on the small set of techniques all exploit-based attacks use, which rarely change. Traps blocks these techniques, thereby preventing exploitation attempts before they can compromise endpoints. Despite continuous investments in legacy antivirus solutions and “Next—Gen” AV products, organizations continue to experience security breaches and successful ransomware attacks with increasing frequency.

Palo Alto Networks Traps WildFire Threat Analysis Service

As an integral component of Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform, Palo Alto Networks Traps continuously exchanges threat intelligence with the WildFire threat analysis service, as does each component of the platform deployed among the global community of Palo Alto Networks customers. WildFire is the world’s largest distributed sensor system focused on identifying and preventing unknown threats, with more than 17,000 enterprise, government and service provider customers contributing to the collective immunity of all other users. Palo Alto Networks Traps customers receive access to this intelligence and WildFire complete set of malware analysis capabilities. Palo Alto Networks Traps uses this intelligence to automatically reprogram itself to prevent malware no matter where it is discovered first, be it on the endpoint, in the network or in a SaaS application. The automatic conversion of threat intelligence into prevention all but eliminates the opportunity for an attacker to use unknown and advanced malware to infect a system.

Endpoint Protection

Endpoint protection is the crucial process of ensuring the individual access points to a corporate network are secured; meaning all internet enabled devices such as laptops, tablets, and smartphones. The traditional endpoint protection perimeter continues to expand as organizations adopt more bring-your-own-device practices — increasing the number of vulnerable entry points. Traditional endpoint solutions are simply not versatile enough to keep up with today’s threat landscape. Check out the articles below to gain the insight necessary to confidently purchase, utilize, and evaluate your endpoint protection solution so your organization’s network and data will be properly secured. Organizations should select security products that provide ­superior­ value in terms of both monetary cost and their security effectiveness. This effectiveness is measured by the technology’s ability to, at a minimum, deliver on core capabilities.

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.


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.


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.
