“Companies are incurring extra losses due to increased cyber attacks. Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) predicted a loss of RM 51 billion due to cyber security threats in Malaysia, accounting for more than 4% of the nation’s total gross domestic product. This signifies an urgent need for enterprises to ramp up their cybersecurity infrastructure to increase their business resilience against the unpredicted cyber threats.” said Suk Hua Lim, Country Manager, Palo Alto Networks, Malaysia.

The PA-3400 and PA-5400 Series NGFWs deliver faster prevention and better evasive threat detection. Compared to the previous generation, the PA-5400 Series has seven times content inspection per core and up to 38 high-performance cores. The PA-3400 Series has close to four times content inspection per core and up to 19 high-performance cores.

With up to a 50% reduction in rack space usage and increased energy efficiency, these new firewalls can help make organizations’ IT infrastructure more sustainable and environmentally friendly.

The new NGFWs and PAN-OS® 10.2 Nebula are expected to be available in March.
