Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE: PANW), the leader in enterprise security, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner Inc. in the “leaders” quadrant of the April 22, 2015 “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls.
This marks the fourth year that Palo Alto Networks has been recognized as a leader in the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Firewalls1, which evaluates vendors’ ability to execute and completeness of vision.
According to the report, “The Leaders quadrant contains vendors that build products that fulfil enterprise requirements. These requirements include a wide range of models, support for virtualization and virtual LANs, and a management and reporting capability that is designed for complex and high-volume environments, such as multitier administration and rule/policy minimization. A solid NGFW capability is an important element as enterprises continue to move away from having dedicated IPS appliances at their perimeter and remote locations. Vendors in this quadrant lead the market in offering new safeguarding features, providing expert capability rather than treating the firewall as a commodity, and having a good track record of avoiding vulnerabilities in their security products. Common characteristics include handling the highest throughput with minimal performance loss and offering options for hardware acceleration.”
“It’s an honour to be recognized for our ability to execute and completeness of vision in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls, and we’re thrilled to achieve this position for the fourth time. We are proud to see that our next-generation firewall continues to set the bar in the industry. It is the cornerstone of our unique enterprise security platform that combines network, cloud and endpoint security capabilities to safely enable applications and deliver automated prevention against cyber-attacks – known and unknown.”
– René Bonvanie, CMO, Palo Alto Networks
