The new PAN-OS 3.0 software for Palo Alto's firewalls is designed to supersede the 'find it and kill it' model other security technologies are based upon.

The application landscape has changed over the years and yet the firewall hasn't. With this in mind, Palo Alto Networks is telling customers and channel partners its' new PAN-OS 3.0 software for its firewalls is designed to supersede the 'find it and kill it' model other security technologies are based upon.

"Any application can use any port and firewalls tend to make all policies and assumptions based on ports so they don't really do anything anymore," said Chris King, Palo Alto Networks director of product marketing. "You've got this whole crop of firewall helpers that came up into orbit around the firewall and our contention is if you fix the firewall . . . you can rip off a lot of the band-aids."

The OS includes significant new functionality, including QoS features and a fully integrated SSL VPN. These features further enable enterprise customers to embrace new applications while managing the risks inherent in using those applications, the company says.
