  • WildFire

    The WildFire™ cloud-based malware-analysis subscription actively analyzes unknown files and links, including malware, websites, and command and control traffic, and delivers automatically created protections and intelligence back to subscribed customers all over the world for proactive, global prevention.

    WildFire protections are created to account for innovative tactics, such as polymorphism, commonly used in advanced attacks. WildFire is also natively integrated with our newest technologies, Traps™, AutoFocus™, and Aperture, keeping security across your organization both coordinated and up to date.

  • GlobalProtect

    GlobalProtect™ mobile security extends the protection of your firewall to endpoints both inside and outside your corporate network, delivering consistent security to users in all locations.

    Mobile devices can use GlobalProtect apps for iOS and Android to connect to the corporate firewall, and you can apply the state of the endpoint device as part of the context for security policy, using the Host Information Profile (HIP). GlobalProtect subscriptions can also be deployed internally to protect local and wireless network users.

  • Aperture

    Aperture extends the visibility and granular control of our security platform into SaaS applications themselves – an area traditionally invisible to IT. Aperture solves this problem by looking into SaaS applications directly, providing full visibility into the day-to-day activities of users and data. Granular controls ensure policy is maintained to eliminate data exposure and threat risks.

  • Traps

    Palo Alto Networks Traps replaces traditional antivirus with multi-method prevention, a proprietary combination of purpose-built malware and exploit prevention methods that protect users and endpoints from known and unknown threats. Traps prevents security breaches, in contrast to breach detection and incident response after critical assets have already been compromised.

    Traps Advanced Endpoint Protection:

    • Prevents cyber breaches by preemptively blocking known and unknown malware, exploits and zero-day threats.
    • Protects and enables users to conduct their daily activities and use web-based technologies without concerns for known or unknown cyberthreats.
    • Automates prevention by autonomously reprogramming itself using threat intelligence gained from WildFire.
