VM-Series: Next-Generation Security for Private and Public Clouds
The VM-Series is a virtualised form factor of Palo Alto’s next-generation firewall that can be deployed in a range of private and public cloud computing environments based on technologies from VMware®, Amazon® Web Services, Microsoft®, Citrix® and KVM.
The VM-Series natively analyses all traffic in a single pass to determine the application identity, the content within, and the user identity. These core elements of your business can then be used as integral components of your security policy, enabling you to improve your security efficacy through a positive control model and reduce your incident response time through complete visibility into applications across all ports.
In both private and public cloud environments, the VM-Series can be deployed as a perimeter gateway, an IPsec VPN termination point, and a segmentation gateway, protecting your workloads with application enablement and threat prevention policies
