We’re extremely proud to announce that Palo Alto Networks has achieved a “Recommended” rating for overall security effectiveness, performance and total cost of ownership (TCO) in the 2018 NSS Labs Next Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS) Group Test.

In doing so, we blocked blocking 99.8% of 1,900+ exploits and stopped 100% of 147 different evasion techniques. Our results this adds to other recent NSS Labs “Recommended” ratings for Next Generation Firewall, Data Center Security Gateway, Breach Prevention Systems, and Advanced Endpoint Protection.

As a key component of our Security Operating Platform, our IPS provides comprehensive protection against server and client-side network evasion techniques, exploit kits, command-and-control activity and phishing attacks. Organizations are able to easily apply security best practices through policies that are consistent across your data centers, remote offices, cloud deployments, and mobile users, while taking advantage of high throughput, low-latency performance. This test continues to validate our ability to secure our customers’ businesses with a prevention-focused architecture that can be easily deployed and operated.

Ransomware, specifically cryptographic ransomware, has quickly become one of the greatest cyber threats facing organizations around the world. This criminal business model has proven to be highly effective in generating revenue for cyber criminals in addition to causing significant operational impact to affected organizations. It is largely victim agnostic, spanning across the globe and affecting all major industry verticals. Small organizations, large enterprises, individual home users – everyone is a potential target. Ransomware has existed in various forms for decades, but in the last several years criminals have perfected the key components of these attacks. This has led to an explosion of new malware families and has drawn new actors into participating in these lucrative schemes.
