Glasswall – Palo Alto Networks
Firewall Plug-in

The Glasswall – Palo Alto Networks Firewall Plug-in supercharges your firewall with an additional layer of zero-trust file-based protection.

Your firewall is leaving you at risk from file-based threats

The out-the-box Palo Alto Networks Firewall provides sophisticated protection against malicious traffic, but is unable to offer adequate protection against file-based threats.

It lacks the capability to:

  • Assess and address file structure discrepancies
  • Protect against zero-day threats, due to a dependence on quickly outdated antivirus databases that can leave an organization vulnerable to zero-day threats for an average of 18 days
  • Stop malicious content passing into IT infrastructure, leaving it at considerable risk

*Compatible with new or existing Series PA or VM deployments

Our plug-in offers security without compromise

The Glasswall – Palo Alto Networks Plug-in is a simple to install and highly scalable solution that seamlessly integrates with our industry leading CDR (Content Disarm and Reconstruction) platform.

The plug-in removes the reliance on Palo Alto Network’s detection-based practices for file-based threats. Instead of looking for malicious content, Glasswall’s zero-trust file protection treats all files as untrusted — validating, rebuilding and cleaning each file to a safe and compliant standard, and automatically removing potential threats.

With Glasswall CDR, only safe, clean and fully functioning files enter and leave an organization, allowing users to access files with full confidence.

Raising the bar on file security

We believe people should be free to open their files without fear. To click on anything without risk of catastrophe. To use systems the way they were meant to be used. That’s why we’re raising the bar on file security at Glasswall.
