Gartner MQ 2017


Next-generation firewalls are far superior to – and more secure than – traditional firewalls. Having moved beyond port and protocol filtering, today’s NGFWs boast safe enablement of applications, classification of traffic, ease of management, fewer rules, lower TCO and, of course, better security. No longer an optional part of security infrastructure, next-generation firewalls are a must-have for today’s organizations.

Gartner just released its 2017 Magic Quadrant report for Enterprise Network Firewalls and named Palo Alto Networks® a Leader for Enterprise Network Firewalls for the sixth time.
