Palo Alto Networks Virtualized Next Generation Firewall (VM-Series)
The VM-Series is a virtualized form factor of our next-generation firewall that can be deployed in a range of service provider networks and private and public cloud computing environments based on technologies from Openstack, VMware®, Amazon® Web Services, Microsoft®, Citrix® and KVM.
The VM-Series natively analyzes 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 though complete visibility into applications across all network peering points and ports.
The VM-Series can be deployed as a Virtual Network Function (VNF) across multiple service provider NFV/SDN deployment scenarios, as a perimeter gateway, an IPsec VPN termination point, and a segmentation gateway, protecting your subscribers, networks and workloads with application enablement and threat prevention policies.
For mobile network operators, the extendibility of PAN-OS functions across virtual and physical form factors allows for an easier and more seamless migration to NFV. Managed security service providers (MSSPs) can leverage Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) that can be easily integrated and configured with their NFV Infrastructure (NFV-I) and SDN controllers, and easily manage their NFV Management and Orchestration systems (VNF MANO).
The VM-Series Models
The VM-Series is comprised of five models that deliver App-ID™ technology enabled throughput that ranges from 200 Mbps for the VM-50 to 16 Gbps for the VM-700.
