Palo Alto Networks Vm-series

The Palo Alto Networks VM-Series is a virtualized version of their firewall. The VM-Series integrates with data centers and cloud environments, providing application visibility, threat prevention functions, and granular control over applications, users, and content. With no physical limitations or hardware costs, it can be deployed more quickly and on a larger scale than traditional firewalls. As an added benefit for companies that embrace virtualization technology as part of their infrastructure strategy, the VM-Series supports different hypervisors including VMware ESXi and NSX. The software offers deeper security by inspecting traffic at all layers of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model beyond just port numbers.
