- Palo Alto Networks has introduced new AI-powered security features, including “Advanced Wildfire,” which integrates machine learning into its cloud-based detection engines to prevent evolving and particularly evasive initial attacks.
- Among the new firewalls is the PA-7500, a firewall with specially designed integrated circuits for application-specific use that may achieve performance exceeding 1.5 Tbps App-ID.
In response to the use cases of modern enterprises, Palo Alto Networks Inc. unveiled a fleet of new features, including next-generation firewalls, many sophisticated security features, and a zero-trust management solution driven by artificial intelligence.
The introduction of “Strata Cloud Manager,” which aims to solve the problems of insufficient predictive and actionable insights and a lack of smooth integration between security tools, which leads to security gaps and inconsistent policies that jeopardize protection and operational experience, is at the top of the list.
At each enforcement point, Strata Cloud Manager strengthens security posture and proactively guards against network disruptions. By utilizing predictive analytics, security teams may proactively anticipate capacity bottlenecks and evaluate deployment health up to seven days ahead of time. This guarantees uninterrupted network availability.
The service’s enhanced network security fortifies network safety with real-time compliance checks and AI-powered policy analysis. To provide consistent protection while reducing operational overhead, the service may also supervise configuration and security policies across all form factors, including hardware and software firewalls, secure access service edges, and others.
Palo Alto Networks has introduced new AI-powered security features, including “Advanced Wildfire,” which integrates machine learning into its cloud-based detection engines to prevent evolving and particularly evasive initial attacks. New detection capabilities are being developed to stop threats like software-as-a-service platform-hosted phishing attacks and man-in-the-middle attacks. Compared to competing systems, advanced URL filtering can identify and block 88% of harmful URLs 48 hours in advance.
The newly developed AI-powered advanced threat protection aims to thwart command-and-control attacks, which are frequently disseminated through the Empire Red Team tool. According to Palo Alto Networks, the sophisticated threat defense blocks extremely evasive command-and-control attempts with a success rate of over 97%.
Additionally, the business launched a line of new next-generation firewalls designed to meet various demands, including those of distant branches and high-traffic networks. The new firewalls are designed to meet the demands of operating technology environments and future 5G connectivity requirements and offer improved cybersecurity features.
Among the new firewalls is the PA-7500, a firewall with specially designed integrated circuits for application-specific use that may achieve performance exceeding 1.5 Tbps App-ID. The PA-415-5G is a product from Palo Alto Networks designed for quickly expanding 5G networks. With a security suite that supports wired and 5G connectivity, it gives businesses the adaptability they need to protect their branch offices.
The PA-450R, the most recent addition to the lineup of firewalls, was created especially for industrial enterprises that must withstand challenging working environments. It is a ruggedized solution that guarantees reliable connectivity and security.
