What is Threat Prevention Throughput?

Not applicable

We're looking to pick up a new firewall, but we're not sure what Threat Prevention Throughput is and if it could be a potential network bottleneck. We're looking at the PA-500 and we have a 100 Mbps link now, but if we bump up our line speed, will the TPT be a problem later?

So two questions:

1. What is Threat Prevention Throughput?

2. Can it be a network bottleneck later?

Throughput isn't a only one important parameter, think about:

  • threat prevention throughput
  • IPSec VPN throughput
  • max sessions
  • new sessions per second
