Deploying any next-generation firewall (NGFW) in a public cloud environment is challenging, not justbecause of the firewall itself but also because of the public cloud networking services practitioners must use. The job of understanding cloud networking complexities to ensure a successfully configured and maintained firewall deployment is no small task. It’s a task that is possible — though difficult — and it comes with performance, scale, and visibility tradeoffs that must be considered closely. This blog explores Aviatrix’s intelligent orchestration and control service to simplify the deployment of Palo Alto Networks VM-Series Firewalls and eliminate those tradeoffs.
The great cloud migration is well underway. According to the Gartner Predicts 2022 report series, “more than 75% of organizations use multiple public cloud services today, and have plans to expand.”

Firewalls have evolved over the last 20 years from stateless packet-based processing to stateful firewalls that were still based on ports and protocols. Then came the next evolution of Next Generation Firewall (NGFW). NGFWs are what's known as "application aware."
