The recent release of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” reminds us that it is entirely possible for two different people to look at the same piece of media or information and draw substantially different conclusions about it. This is true of fans of a franchise who may love or dislike a movie, but especially true in the workplace, when people with drastically different jobs are inclined to read into a situation based on their individual experience and perspective.

Every day, travelers rely on airplanes to get them to their destination safely. Pilots, in turn, rely on air traffic control to guide them through takeoff and landing, especially in inclement weather. It may seem like there aren’t many similarities between planes and firewalls. Still, just as planes continue to operate in inclement weather, firewalls should continue to operate in all conditions, too.

Nearly 25 years ago, Zuk’s focus was on stateful inspection firewalls, which at the time dominated the market. Ten years later, when use of internet applications began to explode and challenge stateful inspection capabilities, a new approach was needed. This ultimately led Zuk to create Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall.

The national conversation around cybersecurity is perpetually changing, but most data security professionals can agree that it is a daunting task to lock down systems in the cloud. In fact, there is often a discrepancy between a company’s stated cybersecurity policy and the reality of what that company does to secure its data, simply because it is so difficult to stay ahead of changing cybersecurity standards. If it seems like a breach is in the news every other week, that’s because many companies have been burned by inadequate security, resulting in embarrassing public disclosures of vulnerabilities.
