NSS Labs covered a lot of ground in this network firewall test and we are pleased to have worked with them to retest and subsequently successfully pass all of their tests while still surpassing the performance metrics stated on our datasheet," said NirZuk, founder and CTO at Palo Alto Networks.

NSS Labs -- a world leader in independent security product testing and certification -- designed the test to focus on the following four areas:
Security effectiveness
Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
Not only did Palo Alto Networks pass all effectiveness and stability tests, but only the Palo Alto Networks PA-4020 performed above its stated datasheet performance. NSS Labs noted that Palo Alto Networks price/performance is $10 per protected Mbps, by far the most cost-effective product among the participating vendors -- Check Point, Cisco, Juniper, Fortinet, and SonicWALL.

Palo Alto Networks, the network security company today announcedthat NSS Labs awarded Palo Alto Networks the "Recommended" rating for passing all tests, including the TCP split-handshake spoof test, within its Network Firewall 2011 Comparative Test.
