If you can’t tell already, a lot happened in May! The PAN-OS 10.1 software release was announced, delivering Complete Zero Trust Network Security and a host of additional innovations across security services and next-generation firewall (NGFW) platforms.
In the May software firewalls update, we previewed two key capabilities introduced for our software firewalls with PAN-OS 10.1: Intelligent Traffic Offload (ITO) service for VM-Series firewalls; and a new auto scale deployment model for CN-Series firewalls within a Kubernetes cluster. Also this month, Palo Alto Networks released VM-Series plugin 2.0.7, and we added a few more enhancements for our software firewalls.
