Palo Alto PA Series / Palo Alto VM-Series

Paloalto networks

Next-Generation Firewalls that realize application-level identification and control. The threat prevention option, which combines IPS and anti-malware capabilities to block threats comprehensively, and WildFire option, which uses zero-day exploits and advanced evasion techniques to detect unknown malware are available.

FortiGate-VM / FortiGate Appliance


Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) and UTM (Unified Threat Management) firewall that combines multiple security functions in a single unit with high performance and excellent cost performance by the proprietary FortiASIC security processor.

Features of Palo Alto PA Series and Palo Alto VM-Series

Next-Generation Firewall for Multi-Level Defense with One Device

The Palo Alto Networks PA-Series provides the traditional signature to detect and protect against known threats, as well as the sandbox to detect and protect against unknown threats. Besides, it is possible to identify, visualize, and control applications that were not possible with conventional firewalls.

Visualize Communication and Usage by On-Box Reports

You can specify a period for each category, such as applications or traffic, to select logs of information that you need and view them as reports. In addition to understanding the network status, this allows you to understand the activity status of each application or user.

Items that can be viewed in an On-Box report
  • Traffic log
  • Threat log
  • System log
  • Application aggregation report
  • Threat protection report
On-Box Report Display Format
  • Application report
  • Threat report
  • Traffic report
  • PDF Summary report
  • The reporting period you can refer to depends on the number of communication logs.

Feature Overview
Threat Protection

Protects the system from known threats such as viruses, spyware, and vulnerability attacks.

Detect and Protect Communications by Threat Protection Options
The Anti-virus and anti-spyware feature detects and protects communications suspected of being viruses or spyware, and the anti-vulnerability feature detects attack suspected of targeting vulnerabilities.

Advantage of the UTM Function of the Next-Generation Firewall
Using the UTM function of the conventional firewall may severely degrade performance. However, Palo Alto Networks' Next-Generation Firewalls offer threat protection features that use the software architecture (single-pass method) to reduce performance degradation.

WildFire (Sandbox)

Detects and protects against unknown threats in sandboxes that cannot be prevented by traditional measures such as anti-virus, IPS, and URL filtering.

Share Maximum Threat Information in Cloud-based Sandboxes
A sandbox in the cloud allows you to maximize the sharing of information about threats while minimizing the hardware requirements. The signatures to be distributed are also generated from files transferred from WildFire users worldwide. Quickly recognize and protect against unknown threats.

Generate Anti-Threat Signature to Collaborate with Threat Protection
If it is determined to be malware, an anti-virus signature is automatically generated and delivered to your device within an hour. The delivered signature is reflected in the settings of the anti-virus, IPS signature, and URL filtering functions to detect and protect against the latest threats.

Generate Forensic Reports
Administrators can view the file information, session information, and file runtime behavior results on the portal site. Also, the portal site provides detailed information about which users have been targeted and what applications have been utilized.

Application Identification (App-ID)

Identify, visualize, and control applications regardless of the port, protocol, SSL encryption, or detection avoidance action. For example, an application using the same port can be identified, visualized, and controlled while port 80 is permitted.

User Identification (User-ID)

By linking with Microsoft's Active Directory servers, you can identify who is using which applications. This allows you to set up, visualize, and control applications that are permitted and prohibited for each department or user.

Anti-Malware (Intrusion Protection) (Optional Feature)

In addition to known threats through signature matching, heuristic detection that shows the behavior of communications protects the server and clients from unknown threats.
