Today it is quite difficult to get the chance to define a new market, to grow and to re-shape this market once again. It is even more difficult if your main focus is  located in the highly competitive sector of cybersecurity. Because of this, Gartner’s new view on the Magic Quadrant for Network Firewalls may be yet another milestone in the history of Palo Alto Networks.

Gartner, famous for their „Magic Quadrants“ where companies are divided into four quarters, have recently recognized Palo Alto Networks as a leader for the eighth time. Ranging from „Challengers“ (top left) over „Niche Players“ (bottom left) to „Visionaries“ (bottom right) and the pole position - „Leaders“ (top right), Palo Alto Networks once again underlined their unique status in the field of notable competitors like Cisco, Check Point or Fortinet.

This acknowledgement into Palo Alto Network's work is yet not new, indeed it is the eighth time in a row the Santa Clara-based company gets this achievement. To sum it up, there is no other company in the cybersecurity sector that comes closer to the completeness of vision when it comes to Gartner’s view on this market.

Palo Alto Networks is known to have defined the network security market with their next-generation firewall. In the last seven months, the company has made significant improvements to the next-generation firewall to extend this leader-position even more. Now, the fastest-ever next-generation firewall from Palo Alto Networks has more than 60 new features and a revolutionary new DNS subscription which completes the fields Palo Alto Networks-firewalls are located in.
