Palo Alto NGFW
Palo Alto NGFW (next-generation firewalls) are architected to safely enable applications and prevent modern threats. Their 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 their 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 NGFW classifies all traffic, including encrypted traffic, based on application, application function, user and content. You can create comprehensive, precise security policies, resulting in safe enablement of applications. This lets only authorized users run sanctioned applications, greatly reducing the surface area of cyber attacks across the organization.
Palo Alto Networks Traps Endpoint Protection
Palo Alto Networks Traps replaces traditional antivirus with a multi-method prevention approach that secures endpoints against known and unknown malware and exploits before they can compromise a system. Traps prevents security breaches and successful ransomware attacks, in contrast to detection and response after critical assets have been compromised. Palo Alto Networks Traps takes a unique approach to preventing exploits. Instead of focusing on the millions of individual attacks or their underlying software vulnerabilities, it focuses on the small set of techniques all exploit-based attacks use, which rarely change. Traps blocks these techniques, thereby preventing exploitation attempts before they can compromise endpoints.
Palo Alto Networks Wildfire – Cloud-based Threat Analysis
WildFire® cloud-based threat analysis service is the industry’s most advanced analysis and prevention engine for highly evasive zero-day exploits and malware. The cloud-based service employs a unique multi-technique approach combining dynamic and static analysis, innovative machine learning techniques, and a groundbreaking bare metal analysis environment to detect and prevent even the most evasive threats. Palo Alto Networks WildFire goes beyond legacy approaches used to detect unknown threats, bringing together the benefits of four independent techniques for high-fidelity and evasion-resistant discovery, including dynamic analysis, static analysis, machine learning, and bare metal analysis.
