ANSSI Certification Underscores the Differentiation of the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall.
Santa Clara, CA -- January 21, 2014 -- Palo Alto Networks (NYSE: PANW), the leader in enterprise security, today announced it has achieved a top-level certification from the Agence Nationale de la Securite des Systemes d'Information (ANSSI) that is highly regarded by the defense sector in France. The Palo Alto Networks platform is the first to be certified by the ANSSI on next-generation firewall criteria.
To achieve the certification, the Palo Alto Networks platform was subjected to numerous tests and scenarios by the Centre d'Evaluation de la Securite des Technologies de l'Information (CESTI) and information technology security consultants at AMOSSYS - organizations approved by the ANSSI to conduct these top-level security assessments. Upon completion of this testing, the agency certified the Palo Alto Networks platform and its technological differentiations, including protections based on what matter most in today's dynamic networks: applications (App-ID), users (User-ID), and content (Content-ID).
