Palo Alto Networks next-generation (NSX) firewalls identify, control, and safely enable applications while also inspecting all content for threats. Identifying and controlling your data center traffic – physical or virtual reduces the scope of attacks. The VM-Series of virtualized next-generation firewalls eliminate the unacceptable compromises you previously faced when moving into virtualized data center or cloud computing. The VM-Series enables you to deploy a virtualized security infrastructure that safely enables the complex and growing number of applications in your data center while keeping pace with the rapid pace of change occurring in your virtualized environment. You can use the centralized management platform to deploy both virtualized and physical firewalls, which optimizes visibility, reduces operational complexity and decreases policy configuration gaps. With consistent next-generation security features, available in physical or virtual form factors our firewalls allow you to address any data center design – without compromise.
