The Palo Alto Networks PA-2000 Series is comprised of two high performance platforms, the PA-2050 and the PA-2020, both of which are targeted at high speed Internet gateway deployments. The PA-2000 Series manages network traffic flows using dedicated processing and memory for networking, security, threat prevention and management.
The high speed backplane is divided into separate data and control planes, thereby ensuring that management access is always available, irrespective of the traffic load. The controlling element of the PA-2000 Series is PAN-OS, a securityspecific operating system that allows organizations to safely enable applications using App-ID, User-ID, Content-ID, GlobalProtect, and WildFire.
