Palo Alto Networks
Next Generation Firewalls and Endpoint Protection
Net-Ctrl is a UK based reseller of Palo Alto Networks Next Generation Firewalls and Endpoint Protection (TRAPS). Palo Alto Networks is known as a pioneer in the network security space and have produced a range of highly innovative next generation firewalls, and most recently their endpoint protection solution, TRAPS. Designed to secure your network from the increasingly complex applications that threaten your company which traditional firewalls are struggling to cope with.
The Palo Alto firewalls are able to identify, control and safely enable applications whilst keeping an eye out for anything that looks a little suspicious, regardless of port, protocol, evasive tactic or SSL encryption, diligently scanning all content to stop threats in their path and prevent data leakage.
The Palo Alto solution utilises three unique identification technologies that enable it to be a lot more intelligent than the traditional firewall solutions.

Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls are architected to safely enable applications and prevent modern threats. The PAN approach identifies all network traffic based on applications, users, content and devices, and lets you express your business policies in the form of easy-to-understand security rules.
Flexible deployment options and native integration with our next-generation platform extend the policy enforcement and cyberthreat prevention to everywhere your users and data are located: in your network, on your endpoints and in the cloud.
Palo Alto Networks offers superior architecture with superior benefits:
Complete visibility and precise control: Our next-generation firewalls provide complete visibility into all network traffic based on applications, users, content and devices.
Automated security: Innovative features reduce manual tasks and enhance your security posture, for example, by disseminating protections from previously unknown threats globally in near-real time, correlating a series of related threat events to indicate a likely attack on your network, and using dynamic address groups in security rules to avoid updating server IP addresses frequently.
Protection for your users and data everywhere: Our next-generation firewalls are natively integrated with our security platform, which prevents advanced and unknown cyberthreats no matter where the users and data are located: in your network, on your endpoints and in the cloud.
Palo Alto Network Subscriptions
Palo Alto Networks security subscriptions are purpose-built to share context and prevent threats at every stage of an attack, allowing you to enable singular policies and automated protection that secure your network and remote workforce while simplifying management and enabling your business.
The Threat Prevention subscription adds integrated protection against network-borne threats, including exploits, malware, command and control traffic, and a variety of hacking tools, through IPS functionality and stream-based blocking of millions of known malware samples. When combined with WildFire, your protections are updated in as little as 15 minutes, meaning your security is always up-to-date and able to prevent the latest threats.
URL Filtering provides you with granular, user-based controls over Web activity through URL categories and customisable white- and black-lists, as well as protection from Web-borne threats through malicious categories like “malware” and “phishing.”
The URL Filtering subscription utilises PAN-DB, our URL database that automatically categorises unknown URLs, providing you with the latest URL groupings based on current Web page content. PAN-DB is updated by WildFire every 30 minutes, which means you’re always protected against malicious, high-risk, and unwanted websites.
The WildFire™ subscription actively analyses unknown threats, including malware, websites, and command and control traffic, and delivers automatically created protections and intelligence back to subscribed firewalls all over the world for proactive global prevention.
WildFire protections are created to account for innovative tactics, such as polymorphism, commonly used in advanced attacks. WildFire is also natively integrated with our newest technologies, Traps™, AutoFocus™, and Aperture, keeping security across your organisation both coordinated and up to date.
GlobalProtect™ extends the protection of your firewall to endpoints both inside and outside your corporate network, delivering consistent security to users in all locations.
Mobile devices can use GlobalProtect apps for iOS and Android to connect to the corporate firewall, and you can apply the state of the endpoint device as part of the context for security policy using the Host Information Profile (HIP). GlobalProtect subscriptions can also be deployed internally to protect local and wireless networks users.
