It's Time to Fix the Firewall: Re-Establishing the Firewall as the Cornerstone of Enterprise Network Security
Source: Palo Alto Networks
For the last 15 years, port-blocking firewalls have been the cornerstone of enterprise network security. But much like a stone, they've stood still in the face of rapidly evolving applications and threats. It's no secret that modern applications and threats easily circumvent the traditional network firewall - so much so that enterprises have deployed an entire crop of "Firewall helpers" to help try to manage applications and threats. Palo Alto Networks was founded to fix the firewall - starting over with a clean sheet of paper, and focusing on applications, users, and content as the key elements to deliver visibility and control. Built on high-performance architecture, Palo Alto Networks' next-generation firewalls enable enterprises to safely enable a new breed of applications, without taking on the unnecessary risks that accompany them in traditional organizations.
