We are pleased to inform you that Palo Alto Networks is a leader for the fifth consecutive year in 2016 Gartner MQ for Enterprise Network Firewalls. You can download and access the full Gartner Magic Quadrant report by clicking HERE.

Below are highlights from this report:
• Palo Alto Networks is a leader for the fifth consecutive year: they continue to be recognized as a leader in the magic quadrant.
• Palo Alto Networks has extended their lead: Compared to last year, they moved further to the right (completeness of vision) and further up (ability to execute). No other leader or challenger made progress on both axes.
• Single pass architecture is a key design advantage over competitors: Gartner notes that "single pass is assessed as a design advantage by Gartner clients, as opposed to the unnecessary inspection time that can occur in competing products that process traffic in serial order”.
• WildFire’s success continues: Gartner notes the continuing success of WildFire with “high attach rates for new and existing customers”.

Palo Alto Networks:

With the benefit of hindsight, it’s easy to say that you can prevent advanced threats, but could you have prevented them before they were known?

Join us for a Zero-Day Time Machine overview where you’ll discover a revolutionary approach to breach prevention on the endpoint. Looking back in time, we’ll analyze zero-day threats on the day they became known.

We will discuss:

  • How to future-proof your endpoint security to protect your organization from unknown threats
  • Why other approaches to endpoint protection cannot prevent zero-day exploits
  • Benefits of complete coverage through a natively integrated next-generation security platform

Next-generation security that controls your data center applications and blocks known and unknown threats.
