Palo Alto Networks Unveils New Firewalls, IoT Security Solution

Palo Alto Networks on Wednesday unveiled a new firewall powered by machine learning, a firewall for Kubernetes, and an IoT security solution.

Palo Alto Networks on Wednesday unveiled a new firewall powered by machine learning, a firewall for Kubernetes, and an IoT security solution.

Palo Alto Networks has announced a new next-generation firewall (NGFW) that uses machine learning (ML) to help organizations detect and block threats. These firewalls are powered by the latest version of the company’s firewall operating system, PAN-OS 10.0, which is expected to become available in mid-July.

The company says PAN-OS 10.0 brings more than 70 new features and capabilities, including improved protection against unknown malware and phishing attacks, simplified TLS decryption, improved performance, automated quarantining for compromised devices, and real-time signature streaming for faster detection.

PAN-OS 10.0 also introduces CN-Series firewalls, which are specifically designed for Kubernetes container environments.

“As the industry’s first NGFW built specifically for Kubernetes environments, CN-Series firewalls leverage deep container context to protect inbound, outbound and east-west traffic between container trust zones (i.e. between namespaces, or between PCI-infected apps and non-PCI apps), along with other components of enterprise IT environments,” explained Mukesh Gupta, VP of product management at Palo Alto Networks.

The network security company also announced IoT Security, a new IoT security solution that is offered as a subscription to customers of the new ML-powered NGFW.

IoT Security leverages technology obtained by Palo Alto Networks through the acquisition of IoT security company Zingbox.

“We have enhanced Zingbox’s technology with Palo Alto Networks patented App-ID technology, allowing it to automatically discover new IoT devices, assess risks and convert the learnings into policies that secure IoT,” said Anand Oswal, SVP and GM at Palo Alto Networks. “Applying the rich prevention capabilities of Palo Alto Networks, IoT Security can be paired with the full range of our other cloud-delivered security subscriptions to stop all known and unknown threats targeting IoT and OT devices.”
