2017 NSS Labs Recommended Breach Prevention System


NSS Labs® has published the results of its 2017 Breach Prevention Systems Test report and Security Value Map™. This test focuses on evaluating vendors’ ability to prevent advanced malware, zero-day threats and targeted attacks. It’s designed to compare security effectiveness, performance, stability, reliability and total cost of ownership among a variety of security providers.

In the BPS test, featuring our PA-5220 next-generation firewall, Traps™ advanced endpoint protection, and WildFire® and Threat Prevention security services, Palo Alto Networks®products prevented a broad array of attacks across the network and endpoints, earning a Recommended rating. More specifically:

  • Our configuration blocked 100 percent of malware and exploits.
  • NSS Labs gave us a Security Effectiveness score of 98.5 percent.
  • We accomplished this with zero false positives throughout the testing.

Our platform was built from the ground up for breach prevention, with threat information shared across security functions, and designed to operate in increasingly mobile, modern networks without compromising performance. By combining network, cloud and endpoint security with advanced threat intelligence, we safely enable all applications while automatically blocking cyberthreats at every stage of the attack lifecycle.

NSS Labs testing validates our Next-Generation Security Platform’s ability to not only detect but automatically prevent breaches.
