You may or may not have heard of the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform; is it something new that I should know about? Is it a brand new Operating System?


It isn’t exactly something “new” and it isn’t a new OS, it is just the new way Palo Alto Networks is going to be referring to its new security platform, formerly known as Next-Generation security platform.


The digital world that we all live in can be a scary place if you don’t have good security on your side. We rely on apps to bank, buy food, products, play games and almost everything else. Let’s just face it, we are online more than we are offline nowadays. Traditional cybersecurity is not able to keep up with the number of attacks and vulnerabilities that are happening daily. And now that more companies are adopting cloud, big data analytics and automation to accelerate application delivery, who do you trust?

With a zero trust model, who can you trust?With a zero trust model, who can you trust?

The Palo Alto Networks mission is to protect our way of life in the digital age by preventing successful cyberattacks.

We have been hard at work building the most disruptive force in the network security industry. We recently acquired and integrated into our platform, as well as making sure that the new Security Operating System is built for automation. It is easy to operate, with capabilities that work together, so our customers can prevent successful cyberattacks and use analytics to automate routine tasks, to focus instead on what really matters.


We are known for continuously delivering innovations; and with Application Framework, we extend that to an open ecosystem of developers that benefit from our customers’ existing investment in data, sensors, and enforcement points.
