Top 3 Reasons Why Palo Alto Firewalls Are The Best

Post by

1. Security That Doesn't Eat Your Bandwidth

Most firewalls report flow rates without security protections enabled, and they even default their configuration to disabling all security features. Palo Alto utilizes single-pass architecture, allowing us to inspect and protect traffic at high rates. While most firewalls will suffer from performance degradation whenever more security features are turned on and bottleneck traffic, Palo Alto Next-Generation Firewall users do not have to trade speed for security.

2. Extended Life and Usability

The average firewall needs to be replaced every 4-5 years, not due to equipment failures, but because the hard-coded firewall chipset can no longer be reprogrammed with the latest firewall OS to defend your network properly. Palo Alto Next-Generation Firewalls have an extended life because of the way they are architected with flexible chipsets that can be upgraded and fundamentally reconfigured as new firewall rules and software develop.

3. Local Storage on the Device

Many firewalls on the market do not come with local storage, so when the firewall reboots or spontaneously resets back to its factory reconfiguration, you lose all log and historical data. Thanks to local storage capabilities, Palo Alto Next-Generation Firewalls store logs locally and allows for improved packet capture, web cache, and network optimizations.
