Recently, Palo Alto Networks announced PAN-OS software updates with PAN-OS 11.0 Nova. We are also expanding our portfolio by adding new ML-powered models to ensure zero-trust network security for your organization — from small branch offices to hyperscale data centers. A new set of 4th generation ML-Powered NGFWs bring new capabilities to branches, campus locations and data centers at up to 5x higher performance compared to the previous generation. The new hardware firewalls also bring the flexibility of fiber and power over ethernet (PoE) to small branches:
PA-445 and PA-415 Models
The PA-445 and PA-415 bring the flexibility of fiber and PoE ports to distributed enterprises and small and medium businesses. PoE powers downstream devices such as access points, IP cameras, and IP phones without the need for additional electrical circuits. The PA-445 and PA-415 also bring improved resiliency with dual power supplies and fanless cooling. Up to 3.5x performance over the PA-220 along with new HW features.
PA-415 & PA-445
The new PA-1400 series offers up to 5x performance and up to 7x the session capacity compared to the PA-800 series. PoE support allows the new branch NGFWs to power devices like WiFi Access Points, Security Cameras and VOIP phones directly from the NGFW. Vsys support is being extended to branch NGFWs due to the need for east/west segmentation and the proliferation of IoT devices in branch environments. Up to 5G Cu ports to connect to high speed networks using existing copper ports (no need for additional transceivers). 10 Gig SFP+ Fiber ports allow these firewalls to connect to the new Gig Ethernet service connections at the branches (10 additional compared to the PA-800 series).
The PA-1400 series is ideal for protecting large branch locations and small enterprise campuses:
PA-1410 & PA-1420
The PA-5440 is the highest performing data center NGFW in a sleek 2RU enclosure (3.5 inches). This platform offers 2x the performance of the previous generation PA-5260, increased performance by 35% over the PA-5430 and is ideal for protecting large campus locations and data centers.
