Palo Alto Networks 2015 Year in Review

Anna Lough


It’s been another exciting year here at Palo Alto Networks — chock full of big news, interesting events, and groundbreaking research. Let’s take a look back at some of the top-performing content and most interesting news from the past year.

Announcements & Accolades

We had no shortage of announcements and accolades in 2015, which made it hard to track down the top announcements of the year. But, after much debate, we narrowed it down to two key milestones.

In April, Palo Alto Networks was recognized for the fourth time as a Gartner Magic Quadrant Leader. In September, we broke ground on our brand new headquarters in Santa Clara to accommodate more than 5,000 workers, giving us the space we need to keep growing.

For those who want to relive even more of the big news of 2015, you can read about the other accolades Palo Alto Networks received and more announcements from 2015.
