Palo Alto Networks, Inc. offers a next-generation security platform that allows enterprises, service providers, and government entities to secure their organizations by enabling various applications running on their networks worldwide. The company’s platform uses a traffic classification engine that identifies network traffic by application, user, and content. Its security platform consists of three major elements: its Next-Generation Firewall, its Advanced Endpoint Protection, and its Threat Intelligence Cloud. The company’s Advanced Endpoint Protection prevents cyber attacks that aim to exploit software vulnerabilities on various fixed and virtual endpoints and servers. Its Threat Intelligence Cloud provides central intelligence capabilities, security for software as a service (SaaS) applications, and automated delivery of preventative measures against cyber attacks. Products and Services Firewall Appliances All of the company’s firewall appliances incorporate its PAN-OS operating system and come with the same set of features ensuring operation across the entire product line. These features include App-ID, User-ID, site-to-site VPN, remote access Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN, and Quality-of-Service (QoS). The company classifies its appliances based on throughput. Its firewall appliances come in a QoS physical form factor, as well as in a virtual form factor that is available for virtualization platforms from VMware, Inc.; Citrix Systems, Inc.; and, Inc. Panorama: Panorama is the company’s centralized security management solution for global control of all of its appliances deployed on an end-customer’s network as a virtual appliance or a physical appliance. Panorama is used for centralized policy management, device management, software licensing and updates, centralized logging and reporting, and log storage. Panorama controls the security, network address translation, QoS, policy based forwarding, decryption, application override, captive portal, and distributed denial of service/denial of service (DDoS/DoS) protection aspects of the appliances and virtual systems under management. Panorama centrally manages device software and associated updates, including SSL-VPN clients, GlobalProtect clients, dynamic content updates, and software licenses. Panorama offers the ability to view logs and run reports from all managed appliances without the need to forward the logs and to report on aggregate user activity for all users, including mobile users. Virtual System Upgrades: Virtual System Upgrades are available as extensions to the Virtual System capacity that ships with the appliance. Virtual Systems provide a virtualization solution to the company’s large enterprise and service provider end-customers that implement large data centers, private cloud, and public cloud security infrastructures and need to support a multi-tenant firewall environment. Subscription Services: The company offers various subscription services as part of its platform. These services include: Threat Prevention Subscription: This service provides the intrusion detection and prevention capabilities of the company’s platform.
