One of the top companies in network security – and likely the fastest-growing – is Palo Alto Networks, rated one of the leaders in Gartner's most recent magic quadrant report on enterprise network firewalls. The chief competitor to CheckPoint just announced 49% year-on-year revenue gains, driven mainly by subscriptions.
VMware and Palo Alto Networks are co-developing a network security tool to monitor intra-server traffic between virtual machines, the Virtualization Review reported Monday.
Christa Ayer writes the new cloud tool will be designed to help manage east-west traffic of software-defined data centers.
The companies aim to VMware’s NSX virtualized network platform and Palo Alto network security tool and Panorama centralized management software.
Palo Alto Networks, a network security company, and VMware, Inc., a provider of virtualization infrastructure solutions, have partnered to deliver an integrated solution that combines the Palo Alto Networks VM-Series virtualized next-generation security platform with the VMware NSX network virtualization platform.
Palo Alto Networks is looking to lure in more resellers as it seeks to exploit the perception that there is no money in punting traditional firewalls. Palo Alto Networks is looking to lure in more resellers as it seeks to exploit the perception that there is no money in punting traditional firewalls. The next-generation firewall vendor is gearing up to widen its partner base in 2014 after this week posting a 49% jump in quarterly revenues.
In the past, enterprises approach security based on a basic set of assumptions – that blocking or filtering ports (and subsequently, URLs) is an effective way to stop unwanted and potentially dangerous traffic. However, we all know that the ways businesses use the Internet have evolved beyond the capabilities of port-based approaches to security. Today’s networks require IT departments to understand what applications are running on the network (what it is, where it is, who’s using it, and how; and what their weaknesses are).
Palo Alto Networks has integrated its next-generation firewall into the VMware NSX network virtualization overlay software. The combined technologies bring automated, advanced security features and visibility to virtual network overlays.
The Palo Alto Networks and VMware announced a partnership to enable customers to automate the sourcing and distribution of safety data in physical or virtual centers, supported on VMware NSX Network Virtualization platform.
Network security vendor Palo Alto Network reported its first quarter fiscal 2014 earnings late Monday showing record revenue growth. Palo Alto CEO Mark McLaughlin also used his company's earning call as venue to take aim against rival Cisco Systems and its recent acquisition of SourceFire.
Palo Alto Networks, in fact, was built from the ground up as a 100 percent channel sales company. And its top-notch channel sales team has made sure that its sales model is just as disruptive as its next-generation firewall.
The joint development between VMware and Palo Alto is the most concrete example yet of the synergies between virtual network overlays and application services. The product illustrates the improvements in service granularity, automation and separation of administrative roles that is possible in virtual networks. It will be interesting to see if other security, load balancing, WAN optimization and monitoring/forensics products follow Palo Alto's lead by jumping on the NSX bandwagon. Given the elegance of this this design, we expect there will be many.
Palo Alto Networks and VMware have announced a partnership, backed by a new jointly-developed solution. As a result of the deal, the company’s will provide an integrated solution that combines the Palo Alto Networks VM-Series virtualised next-generation security platform with the VMware NSX network virtualisation platform.
Palo Alto Networks and VMware, Inc. have announced a partnership backed by a new jointly-developed solution. The integrated solution will enable customers to use the VMware NSX network virtualisation platform to automate provisioning and distribution of Palo Alto Networks next-generation network security in their software-defined data centres.

Interview with Isabelle Dumont, Director of Industry Marketing Division Palo Alto Networks and Alain Thibaud, Director of Engineering Systems EMEA, about the proactive security advocated by Palo Alto Networks.
New software from Palo Alto Networks is targeting the problem of security for east-west traffic in the data center, communications that aren’t easily handled by a conventional firewall.
The new product, being launched Tuesday, is a VMware-specific version of the VM series of virtualized firewalls that Palo Alto introduced last year, and it was developed with VMware’s help to work in the NSX network-virtualization environment. VMware gave sneak previews at VMworld Barcelona recently.
