Palo Alto Networks Named Leader of Forrester Wave for Enterprise Firewalls!

Palo Alto Networks has been named a Leader of The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Firewalls, Q3 2020 and received the highest score in the strategy category. Palo Alto Networks was among the 11 vendors that Forrester evaluated for its Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Firewalls, Q3 2020 report. Forrester evaluated vendors against 34 criteria, grouped into three high-level categories: Current offering. Including breadth of each solution as it related integration with adjacent security functionality (like workload security or micro segmentation), the ability of each solution to assist incident response (host isolation), usability, manageability, and performance.

Strategy. Including each vendor’s strategic vision and roadmap as it aligned to a Zero Trust edge architecture, where many security functions are delivered from a secure edge and both on premises and remote users have the ability to access enterprise resources with Zero Trust rather than user-to-site VPN. For vendors not (yet) aligning to the Zero Trust edge architecture, Forrester evaluated their roadmap as it aligned to the vendor’s own stated strategy and feedback Forrester heard from clients. Market presence. Including each vendor’s enterprise firewall revenue and number of enterprise customers.
