Palo Alto Networks Upholds Leadership Position in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls
Monday, July 17, 2017

SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE: PANW), the next-generation security company, today announced that it has again been recognized in the "Leaders" quadrant of the July 10, 2017 "Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls" by Gartner Inc.

According to the report, "The Leaders quadrant contains vendors that build products that fulfill 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 features that protect customers from emerging threats, provide expert capability rather than treat the firewall as a commodity and have a good track record of avoiding vulnerabilities in their security products. Common characteristics include handling the highest throughput with minimal performance loss, offering options for hardware acceleration and offering form factors that protect enterprises as they move to new infrastructure form factors."

This marks the sixth consecutive time that Palo Alto Networks has been named a leader in the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Firewalls(1), which evaluates vendors' ability to execute and completeness of vision.
