Palo Alto Networks PA-500 Firewall – Consistent Architecture for Small Organisations
The Palo Alto Networks PA500 firewall is targeted at high speed firewall deployments for enterprise branch offices and medium size businesses. The PA-500 manages network traffic flows using dedicated computing resources for networking, security, threat prevention and management. The high speed backplane is divided into separate data and control planes, thereby ensuring that management access is always available, irrespective of the traffic load.
The controlling element of the PA-500 next-generation firewall is PAN-OS, a security-specific operating system that allows organizstions to safely enable applications using App-ID, User-ID, Content-ID, GlobalProtect and WildFire.
The Palo Alto Networks PA500 next-generation firewall prevents threats and safely enables applications. Based on the same architectural foundation as all of Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls, the Palo Alto Networks PA500 Firewall is PAN’s smallest rack-mount form factor.
The Palo Alto Networks PA500 enables you to secure your organisation through advanced visibility and control of applications, users, and content at throughput speeds of up to 250 Mbps. Dedicated computing resources assigned to networking, security, signature matching, and management functions ensure predictable performance.
