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 99.8% of 1,900+ exploits and stopped 100% of 147 different evasion techniques. These results add 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.
