Why We Choose to Work With Palo Alto Networks

 When only the best will do, we chose to create FWaaS using Palo Alto’s next- generation Firewall.

Palo Alto Networks® next-generation firewalls detect known and unknown threats, including encrypted traffic, using intelligence generated across many thousands of customer deployments. That means they reduce risks and prevent a broad range of attacks.

Quickly create security rules that mirror business policy, are easy to maintain and adapt to your dynamic environment. Reduce response times with automated policy-based actions and automate workflows via integration with administrative tools, such as ticketing services, or any system with a RESTful API.
