Palo Alto Networks was founded in 2005, in Silicon Valley (Palo Alto), with a mission to re-invent enterprise network security, starting with the firewall. They began to supply their first "next generation" firewalls in 2007.
As from 2009 Palo Alto Networks conquered the EMEA market with their `It's time to fix the firewall` campaign.
Palo Alto Networks offers real innovation to firewalls by enabling unseen visibility and control of applications and content - by user, not just IP address. Today the next-generation firewalls of Palo Alto can be found with over 14.500 customer in 120 countries across multiple industries.
