Application Firewalling = Next Generation Firewalling

Palo Alto Networks (PAN) next generation firewall is a new approach to professional, the application is based on control rather than the conventional control port.

What has been established in recent years as a technical response to threats, was the "stacking" of four different systems: packet filtering, VPN gateway, Application level gateway / content filtering and IDS / IPS. The result: high complexity, four completely different GUIs, no cross-device event correlation, undesirably high latency, resource-intensive surgical operation. With Palo Alto Networks was the idea of perimeter protection designed from scratch, because it involves.

  • Identification of applications regardless of port, protocol or encryption methods
  • Identification of users regardless of the IP address
  • Granular visibility and control over application access and functions
  • Real-time protection against hidden threats in applications
  • Multi-gigabit throughput, in-line integration, minimal latency increase

Based on the security operating system PAN-OS the Palo Alto Networks appliances combine application control App-ID, the integration of user identity (User ID), content filtering (Content ID), networking, VPN and management features.
