Having a vision is one thing. Delivering on that vision is another. That’s why it is important when neutral third parties assess this ability, regardless of the type of product. In the world of Network Firewalls, the Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls”* is the gold standard. The Magic Quadrant evaluates vendors’ ability to execute and completeness of vision.
For the fifth consecutive year, Gartner has placed next-generation security company Palo Alto Networks® in the “Leaders” quadrant.
According to the Gartner report: “As the first line of defense between external threats and enterprise networks, firewalls need to continually evolve to maintain effectiveness, responding to the continuing evolution in threats as well as changes in enterprise network speed and complexity.”
René Bonvanie, Palo Alto Networks CMO, said: “We’re proud to be recognized for the fifth consecutive year as a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls. Our prevention-oriented approach to cybersecurity is anchored by our next-generation firewall; it is the cornerstone of our Next-Generation Security Platform, combining network, cloud and endpoint security capabilities to safely enable applications and prevent successful cyber breaches. We’re thrilled that Gartner continues to recognize both our ability to execute and completeness of vision in this area.”
Palo Alto Networks has worked with more than 31,000 customers in 140 countries, drawing on the company’s deep expertise, unwavering commitment to innovation and breach prevention-oriented next-generation platform. For this reason, Palo Alto Networks has earned a FedPulse Top Innovator commendation.
