The Palo Alto VM 200 virtual appliance, part of the Palo Alto VM series, supports the same security and advanced threat prevention features in the hardware firewalls. This allows you to protect your applications and data from the network to the cloud.
The VM-Series has been designed to deliver up to 16 Gbps of App-ID-enabled firewall performance. It offers five models. They are VM-50/VM-50 Lite, VM-100/VM-300, and VM-500/VM700.
The abundant automation features and centralized management of the Palo Alto VM 200 allow you to embed security in your application development process. This ensures security can keep pace with the speed of the cloud. For example, the VM-Series provides application visibility across all ports.
As a result, you have far more relevant information about your cloud environment. And that helps you make rapid, informed policy decisions.
And today’s cyberthreats often compromise an individual user, and then move laterally across your network. Palo Alto’s segmentation and allow listing policies let you to control applications communicating across different subnets. And you can block lateral threat movement and achieve regulatory compliance.
Attacks can use any port, rendering traditional prevention mechanisms ineffective. So another important feature of the Palo Alto VM 200 is that it allows native integration with their cloud-delivered subscription services such as Threat Prevention, DNS Security, and WildFire®.
This will apply application-specific policies that block exploits, prevent malware, and stop unknown threats in their tracks.
You won’t find much difference between the hardware firewalls and Palo Alto VM 200 in terms of functionality. You’ll get the same level of performance and also be able to use the same PAN OS features. Palo Alto VM also has the advantages over hardware of easy installation and deployment.
Plus, there’s no physical wiring, easy backup, and easy recovery. You’ll also like its support of various hypervisors as well as cloud integration. And, of course, it’s supremely scalable.
