Keeping your data secure is a constant uphill game. Security solutions can’t simply sit back on their haunches and expect the job to be done – they need to be progressive, proactive, innovative, comprehensive, and so on. Many organizations tend to settle for legacy firewall solutions that cannot keep up with the pace the cloud operates at. They limit your organization’s connectivity, restricting access and exposing your network to work inefficiencies and insufficient data protection. Moving up in the world necessitates using Palo Alto next-generation firewall solutions, designed to offer the most comprehensive protection available with advanced security features and cloud connectivity.

With Broadleaf Group, you can be confident that you are partnering with a company that has the expertise and ability to deliver forward-thinking cybersecurity solutions.
Proactive Security Instead of Reactive
The advancement of technology and the continued sophistication of cyber threats have caused new problems that many organizations are unprepared to handle. Not only are hackers evolving at a break-neck pace, but the IoT has also been churning out new technologies that are challenging to secure, forcing organizations from small businesses to enterprise networks to attempt to adapt in ways they’re ill-equipped for. As individual workers have begun bringing their technologies into the office with them or while they work remotely, the potential attack surface for your organization’s network edge has dramatically expanded.
Legacy firewalls are too underpowered to compete at the cloud’s speed. As a result, organizations are shifting toward next-gen firewall solutions to bolster their security posture. These new technologies are built to authenticate traffic based on the context surrounding the user, application, and other factors to determine the safety and security of any given data across your network. Here’s where Palo Alto Networks takes it further: machine learning.
The Value of ML-Powered Firewall Technology
Machine learning has already been implemented in numerous emerging technologies to account for several weaknesses in traditional technologies. For example, an ML-powered firewall can learn from previous incidents by analyzing enormous amounts of data to better approach threats from a proactive security perspective. Rather than waiting until a threat makes itself known, Palo Alto’s next-gen firewall technologies use four key mechanisms to offer comprehensive protection on multiple fronts:
- Inline Machine Learning
- Zero-Delay Signatures
- ML-Powered Visibility Across IoT Devices
- Automated, Intelligent Policy Recommendations
There are numerous reasons why your organization should look into integrating Palo Alto next-generation firewall solutions into your network infrastructure. There are even more reasons why Broadleaf Group is your best option for optimal integration methods, activation, and deployment. Call us at 800-615-0866, or contact us online for a consultation.
