Securing traffic faster with speeds of 10 Gbps to 100 Gbps is becoming the new normal. Network infrastructure has increased the port capabilities very quickly whereas firewalls lagged behind. Palo Alto Networks has developed new firewalls with interfaces of up to 100 Gbps.
In the firewall world, it has been catching up. Securing data at these speeds requires efficient processing of enormous amounts encrypted data. As the campus begins migrating to Wi-Fi 6E, we will begin to realize the bandwidth boost. Security must increase the firewall capacity to accommodate the increase in traffic.
Announced in February 2022, Palo Alto Networks released the PA-3400 and PA-5400 to address these needs. The new hardware will process traffic with lower latency to avoid becoming the bottleneck on the network.
Previously, such powerful firewalls occupied a lot of rack space. Palo Alto Networks has redesigned the hardware to maintain a smaller physical footprint, giving IT teams additional rackspace when upgrading from larger appliances.
Today, the campus or data center can protect their users and infrastructure with PAN-OS 10.2 Nebula. It brings ease of management whether you’re implementing your zero trust architecture or securing your network with the benefits of machine learning and automation.
PAN-OS provides network security engineers with higher efficiency and productivity by removing complex management tasks of policy creation and monitoring.
Cost might be a factor when deciding between Palo Alto Networks and another vendor. The investment made with Palo Alto Networks is realized with the advanced security architecture and reliability.
The PA-3400 and PA-5400 enables organizations to detect and evade threats more quickly. PAN-OS Nebula includes machine learning capabilities to analyze potential zero-day threats in real-time without performance degradation.
Compliance and risk management requirements can be addressed with the flexibility of subscriptions such as Advanced URL Filtering, DNS security, Wildfire, and more.
