SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 11, 2013

SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Palo Alto Networks™ (NYSE:
PANW), the network security company, today announced the availability of
GlobalProtect for the Android mobile operating system. The app allows
enterprises to extend the same next-generation firewall (NGFW) security
policies to users both inside and outside of the network and allows them to
use the mobile platform and applications of their choice without compromising
network security.

"Many security managers are struggling to develop policies around mobility and
BYOD that let them protect their network without restricting the functionality
of mobile devices. We believe that the best way to achieve this is with a
mobile app like GlobalProtect for Android that extends network connectivity to
a NGFW that establishes precise network controls for the safe enablement of
applications," said Rene Bonvanie, chief marketing officer at Palo Alto
Networks. "Additionally, our work with leading mobile device management
vendors allows our customers to easily implement GlobalProtect for Android on
networks with existing mobile security products."

GlobalProtect can automatically connect users to the best available
GlobalProtect gateway on a Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewall. As a
result, organizations can consistently enforce security policies based on
application, user, content, and device, regardless of where the user is
located. Through the safe enablement of applications, users can access
business and productivity tools while enjoying protection from mobile threats
to the device and data.

GlobalProtect for Android is currently available for download from Google
Play™. Customers must have a Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewall with
the appropriate GlobalProtect gateway subscription in order to support the
mobile device app.
