Lan 1 has signed a distribution agreement with next-generation firewall vendor Palo Alto Networks.
The vendor's products allow enterprises to see and control applications, users and content, three identification technologies; App-ID; User-ID; and Content-ID.
Christo Simeonoff, manager of IP security business at Lan 1 said these identification technologies enable enterprises to create business-relevant security policies, instead of the traditional "all-or-nothing" approach offered by traditional port-blocking firewalls.
"The addition of Palo Alto Networks complements Lan 1's existing IP Security vendors," he said.
According to Sineonoff, Palo Alto Networks' next-generation firewalls are based on its Single-Pass Parallel Processing (SP3) Architecture.
Model families include the PA-4000 Series and the PA-2000 Series, and range from 500Mbps to 10Gbps in throughput capacity.
The entire Palo Alto Networks' portfolio will be on display at AusCERT 2009, 18 May to 20 May at Royal Pines on the Gold Coast.
