BlakeAs you might've quessed, I'm a huge fan of Palo Alto Networks products. They just keep coming out with innovations that work and, honestly, they have the most user-friendly products around. 

If it's possible, I'm even more excited about PAN-OS 7.0. Enhancing existing features is one thing, but to add features like automatically identifying compromised hosts, reducing the response time from alert to action, streamlining management processes, and reducing human errors--that just takes the cake!

PAN-OS 7.0 will take the ACC interface and make it even easier to use by adding custom widgets that make drilling down to actionable data even easier. That means: instead of spending hours tracking down a single threat, verifying whether or not it is real (or just a false positive) and actioning against it--now that time is significantly reduced. 

Being a Palo Alto Networks fan doesn't mean I think PAN-OS 7.0 is perfect. There's still a long way to go toward equipping cybersecurity professionals to protect our organizations against a majority of advanced threats. But Palo Alto Networks is making incredible headway, every day. 

If you'd like to hear first-hand about how the new PAN-OS 7.0 will address common operational gaps that are common in enterprise network security, don't miss Fuel's upcoming Webcast "Learn About the Enhanced Features of Panorama and ACC in PAN-OS 7.0." In the wecast, you'll not only hear from the Palo Alto Networks product team, but also from an actual user discussing their experience with the new features.
