The Palo Alto Networks® PA-3000 Series is comprised of two enterprise security platforms, the PA-3050 and the PA-3020, both of which are targeted at high speed Internet gateway deployments. The PA-3020 next-generation firewall manages network traffic flows using dedicated processing and memory for networking, security, threat prevention and management.
The PA-3000 Series enables you to secure your organization through advanced visibility and control of applications, users, and content at throughput speeds of up to 4 Gbps. Dedicated computing and programmable hardware resources assigned to networking, security, signature matching, and management functions ensure predictable performance.
The controlling element of the PA-3000 Series is PAN-OS™, a security-specific operating system that natively classifies all traffic, inclusive of applications, threats and content, then ties that traffic to the user, regardless of location or device type. The application, content, and user—in other words, the business elements that run your business—are then used as the basis of your security policies, resulting in an improved security posture and a reduction in incident response time.
