Top 3 Reasons Why We Partner With Palo Alto

1. Security That Doesn't Eat Your Bandwidth

Most firewalls report flow rates without security protections enabled, and they even default their configuration to disabling all security features. Palo Alto utilizes single-pass architecture, allowing us to inspect and protect traffic at high rates. While most firewalls will suffer from performance degradation whenever more security features are turned on and bottleneck traffic, Palo Alto Next-Generation Firewall users do not have to trade speed for security.

2. Extended Life and Usability

The average firewall needs to be replaced every 4-5 years, not due to equipment failures, but because the hard-coded firewall chipset can no longer be reprogrammed with the latest firewall OS to defend your network properly. Palo Alto Next-Generation Firewalls have an extended life because of the way they are architected with flexible chipsets that can be upgraded and fundamentally reconfigured as new firewall rules and software develop.

3. Local Storage on the Device

Many firewalls on the market do not come with local storage, so when the firewall reboots or spontaneously resets back to its factory reconfiguration, you lose all log and historical data. Thanks to local storage capabilities, Palo Alto Next-Generation Firewalls store logs locally and allows for improved packet capture, web cache, and network optimizations.

Secure Your Network, Secure Your Success

"Our implementation of Palo Alto firewalls went very smoothly, thanks to the experts at Net Friends. We knew our legacy firewalls could not handle more than a handful of VPN connections, so we were under fairly intense time pressure to get ahead of a surge of staff connecting remotely. Our new Palo Alto firewalls are rock solid, and can scale with us as we grow." — TARGET PharmaSolutions


"Our company is young and security is critically important to us. As we worked through the process of building our IT infrastructure, we relied on reviews and recommendations from industry and security experts. Palo Alto was consistently highly recommended. We were also impressed that Palo Alto Networks had been a Seven-Time Gartner Magic Quadrant Leader. Since we’ve implemented Palo Alto firewalls and endpoint protection we’ve found that Palo Alto provides the performance, scalability, and reliability that our company requires combined with ease of use for both our IT staff and end users." Chris, NetVisor Customer
