Palo Alto firewalls & UTM
allow you to safely enable applications and strengthen your security posture across the entire organization with firewall policies that use business-relevant elements such as the application identity, who is using the application, and the type of content or threat as network access decision criteria. At the gateway, you can reduce your threat footprint by blocking a wide range of unwanted applications and then inspecting the allowed applications for threats – both known and unknown. In the datacenter - traditional or virtualized application enablement translates to ensuring only datacenter applications are in use by authorized users, protecting the content from threats and addressing virtual infrastructure security challenges. Unified threat management (UTM) is a comprehensive solution its the evolution of the traditional firewall into an all-inclusive security product able to perform multiple security functions within one single appliance: network firewalling, network intrusion prevention and gateway antivirus (AV), gateway anti-spam, VPN, content filtering, load balancing, data leak prevention and on-appliance reporting.
