Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW)
Palo Alto Firewall goes beyond traditional firewall capabilities by providing advanced features like application awareness, user identification, and threat prevention. It allows you to create policies based on specific applications, users, and content, providing fine-grained control over network traffic.
Palo Alto Firewall is equipped with advanced threat prevention mechanisms to defend against known and unknown threats. It utilizes multiple security technologies, including antivirus, anti-malware, intrusion prevention, and URL filtering, to identify and block malicious activities in real-time.
Palo Alto Firewall enables user identification through various methods, including integration with directory services such as Active Directory, LDAP, and Kerberos. This allows you to create policies based on user identities, ensuring that access to network resources is granted based on user roles and responsibilities.
Secure Remote Access
With Palo Alto Firewall, you can provide secure remote access to your network resources through features like GlobalProtect VPN. This allows remote employees and partners to securely connect to your network from any location, ensuring data confidentiality and integrity.
Palo Alto Firewall offers detailed visibility and control over network applications. It leverages App-ID technology to identify and control thousands of applications, including encrypted and evasive ones. You can create application-based policies to allow or deny access, prioritise bandwidth, and enforce security measures.
Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)
Palo Alto Firewall incorporates a robust IPS engine that inspects network traffic for known vulnerabilities and exploits. It actively blocks malicious activities, protecting your network from common and emerging threats.
Palo Alto Firewall allows you to implement network segmentation strategies to isolate critical resources and restrict lateral movement within your network. By creating separate security zones and applying strict access controls, you can minimise the impact of a potential security breach.
Palo Alto Firewall offers a centralised management platform, Panorama, which provides a unified view of your network security infrastructure. With Panorama, you can efficiently manage multiple firewalls, enforce consistent security policies, and gain actionable insights through comprehensive reporting and analytics.
Palo Alto Firewall seamlessly integrates with leading cloud platforms, including AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud. It provides consistent security controls across your on-premises and cloud environments, ensuring a unified and secure network architecture.
Automation and Orchestration
Palo Alto Firewall supports automation and orchestration through APIs and integration with orchestration platforms like Ansible and Terraform. This enables you to automate repetitive tasks, streamline security operations, and respond quickly to emerging threats.
