We are excited to announce that Palo Alto Networks has achieved a “Recommended” rating, and a spot in the upper-right corner of the NSS Labs NGFW Security Value Map, or SVM, indicating high security effectiveness and low total cost of ownership, or TCO. This is in addition to other recent NSS Labs “Recommended” ratings in the Data Center Security Gateway test, Breach Prevention Gateway test, NGIPS test, and Advanced Endpoint Protection test.

Highlights from the test include:

  • 100% evasions blocked (190 out of 190)
  • 98.73% NSS exploit block rate

Our performance in the NSS Labs NGFW Group test is further proof of our prevention-first philosophy. Our next-generation firewalls can prevent successful cyberattacks with an architecture you can easily deploy and operate. Using automation, we reduce manual effort so that IT and security teams can focus on high-value activities. And we continue to deliver new innovations that are natively integrated, making them easy to adopt.

In this test, NSS Labs evaluated firewall products with 190 different evasion techniques, more than 2,000 exploit tests and throughput tests. The PA-5220 running PAN-OS 8.1.1 was evaluated with the Threat Prevention subscription enabled.

Our NGFWs are the cornerstone of the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform. Through the power of the platform, your organization can continually improve security effectiveness and efficiency – across the network, cloud and endpoints, including servers and mobile devices.

Unit 42 Report - Ransomware: Unlocking the Lucrative Criminal Business Model
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.
