Intelligence, automation and high performance to stop attacks in their tracks

Our next-generation firewalls are available as physical appliances, virtualized appliances and cloud-delivered service, all managed consistently with Panorama.


Harness shared intelligence to prevent successful attacks


Palo Alto Networks® next-generation firewalls detect known and unknown threats, including in encrypted traffic, using intelligence generated across many thousands of customer deployments. That means they reduce risks and prevent a broad range of attacks. For example, they enable users to access data and applications based on business requirements as well as stop credential theft and an attacker’s ability to use stolen credentials.


Automate to save time and focus on what matters most


With our next-generation firewalls, you can quickly create security rules that mirror business policy, are easy to maintain and adapt to your dynamic environment. They reduce response times with automated policy-based actions, and you can automate workflows via integration with administrative tools, such as ticketing services, or any system with a RESTful API.



Leverage innovations that help you adapt



Our next-generation firewalls give you access to the latest innovations of Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform.

For example, the all-new Application Framework delivers superior security through cloud-based apps developed by Palo Alto Networks and today’s most innovative security providers, large and small. It empowers you to consume the newest cloud-delivered security services capable of automating a nearly endless number of security use cases – leveraging the proven sensors, data store and prevention infrastructure you already have in place across the network.
