On February 7, 2017, Palo Alto Networks unveiled the largest release in our company’s history, PAN-OS 8.0. With more than 70 security advancements, our Next-Generation Security Platform delivers leading-edge capabilities, enabling customers to securely embrace any cloud (public, private or SaaS), as well as prevent successful cyberattacks from the endpoint, across the network, and to the cloud.
Together with our partners, we are delivering a new level of security performance and building an ecosystem of next-generation security innovators – experts at enhancing our Next-Generation Security Platform – to deliver customer innovation and business gains.
