Palo Alto Networks PA-3260

The Palo Alto Networks® PA-3200 Series next-generation firewalls are designed for data center and internet gateway deployments.

The PA-3260 provides flexibility in performance and redundancy to help you meet your deployment requirements.

All models in this series provide next-generation security features to help you secure your organization through advanced visibility and control of applications, users, and content.

The controlling element of the PA-3200 Series is PAN-OS® security operating system, which natively classifies all traffic, inclusive of applications, threats and content, and then ties that traffic to the user, regardless of location or device type. The application, content and user – in other words, the 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.
