Fantastic point - with the strong uptick in websites using encryption seen in the recent past, the capability to see all traffic - from all users and devices, at all times becomes even more important from the standpoint of securing networks. The next-generation firewall inherently carries the capability to decrypt traffic - for example, outbound from user segments or inbound into datacenter/server segments - to ensure that it can prevent threats, drive a positive model for access control, and deliver comprehensive visibility into all network activity.

 

These capabilities are highlighted at https://www.paloaltonetworks.com/features/decryption, and best practices for securing perimeter deployments while using decryption is outlined at https://www.paloaltonetworks.com/documentation/71/pan-os/pan-os/policy/best-practice-internet-gatewa... .
