Palo Alto Networks: Next-Generation Firewall With WildFire
Palo Alto Networks has been gaining traction in most analyst market share reports and reviews due to its cloud-based malware analysis system it calls WildFire. The inline firewall, performs…well, like a firewall, blocking unknown files without impeding performance. Threats are offloaded to a crowdsourced, cloud-based engine for analysis and sharing with other WildFire users. The company supports a virtualized sandbox where suspicious files can be submitted and observed for dozens of malicious behaviors.
