Evaluation based on completeness of vision and ability to execute

London: Palo Alto Networks, the network security company, has announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Leaders” quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls.

 

Within the report, Gartner states, “Advances in threats have driven mainstream firewall demand for next- generation firewall capabilities. Buyers should focus on the quality, not quantity, of the features and the R&D behind them. This market includes mature vendors and new entrants.”

“We believe Gartner’s report articulates the reasons why enterprises – en masse – are migrating to next-generation firewalls,” said René Bonvanie, chief marketing officer at Palo Alto Networks. “Our customers continue to advocate to their peers, stakeholders and the broader analyst community that Palo Alto Networks is the definitive leader in this transformed network security market.”

The report also reflects on the install and purchasing rates of next-generation firewalls by stating that, “Less than 10% of Internet connections today are secured using next-generation firewalls (NGFWs). By year-end 2014, this will rise to 35% of the installed base, with 60% of new purchases being NGFWs."
