It's been a busy year for Palo Alto Networks. Big changes to the Santa Clara, Calif.-based company's strategy include a new set of products to redefine its security portfolio and a massive sales force reorganization following some challenges with sales execution earlier this year.

McLaughlin said he sees the network security market entering its third generation, one that will change the consumption model of security for customers and partners.
