Palo Alto PA-820 Next-Gen firewall
Palo Alto is truly among the very top-rated names in cyber-security. And the PA-820 is an impressive mid-sized business firewall. It is very capable of safeguarding many sites across many countries, while keeping standards in place for firewall security, VPN access, and network routing. It can easily deliver the additional capacity needed to work from home, with its’ multiple gateway design. And the PA-820 is part of a family of Next-Generation firewalls that are the world’s first to be truly driven by Machine Learning.
Why it’s a big deal
In short, ML is the science of getting computers to get smarter over time, on their own, like humans do. It is not exactly the same as Artificial Intelligence, but for our purposes, it’s close. There’s an old axiom about computers; they don’t do what you want them to; they do what you tell them to.
So it’s not hard to see why you might want a firewall that can think, spot patterns, and act without being specifically programmed. In other words, it does what you want, not what you tell them. ML is simply a device harnessing data, observations, and interactions in order to correctly generalize to new settings.
This is a complete package. You don’t have to worry about separate hardware for IPS/IDS. And it comes with important capabilities such as Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Anti- Malware etc. built in. App ID and User ID features are very handy and the Firewall decryption capability is awesome. In addition, Palo Alto sends dynamic updates on regular basis. The Palo Alto High Availability feature works seamlessly.
The security modules alone set this solution apart from most others. The visibility into the traffic, rules integration, and the power behind the physical and virtual appliances are exceptional.
Total Firewall Throughput on the PA-820 is upwards of 1.6 Gbps, and Threat Prevention Throughput can reach 900 Mbps. IPsec VPN Throughput is 1.3 Gbps, and the PA-820 supports 8,600 new sessions per second.
