For the fourth year, Palo Alto Networks is positioned in the ‘Leaders’ quadrant of the Gartner 2015 Enterprise Network Firewall Magic Quadrant.

Palo Alto Networks is driven to help its customers maintain the highest security standards against some of the most advanced threats. They are excited that our hard work and dedication has led to this important acknowledgement from Gartner. Thank you for being an integral part of their success.

Report Excerpts:

According to the report, '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.'

'This evaluates the vendor's ability to respond to changes in the threat environment, and to present solutions that meet customer protection needs rather than packaging up fear, uncertainty and doubt.'

The enterprise security market is undergoing one of the most exciting transitions led by a small number of innovative companies who are challenging status quo.

See for yourself and learn how Palo Alto Networks is pioneering new approaches to detecting and preventing advanced threats.
