Check out all of the top Palo Alto Networks news from this past week.


Going to RSA 2015 next week? We’ll be there! Here are the details around our conference activities, including our daily activities, and where and when to find us.

Unit 42 identified new DragonOK backdoor malware deployed against Japanese targets, and they provided insights on the 2015 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR).

We released some of the findings from our Ignite 2015 attendee survey, including that respondents reported that zero-day attacks and evasive malware are the attack vectors they feel are the biggest concerns for the industry.

Check out this post from Dan Cybulski from CTOVision that covers a recent discussion by Palo Alto Networks expert Tim Treat on using neural networks and self-organizing maps to attack the insider threat.

We posted a webinar to show enterprises how an integrated and streamlined approach to security can not only detect the most aggressive threats before they cause any damage, but also block any further propagation of malware.

Modernizing your firewall infrastructure just got easier. Find out how.

Palo Alto Networks was named Best Next-Generation Firewall by SANS.
