Prevent attacks and grow with confidence


Classifies all applications, on all ports, all the time

The PA-220R identifies any application, regardless of port, encryption (SSL or SSH) or evasive technique employed, and uses the application – not the port – as the basis for all your safe enablement policy decisions: allow, deny, schedule, inspect and apply traffic-shaping. It also categorizes unidentified applications for policy control, threat forensics or custom App-ID development.

Enforces security policies for any user, at any location

Enforces security policies for any user, at any location

The PA-220R lets you deploy consistent policies to local and remote users running on Windows®, macOS®, Linux, Android® or Apple® iOS platforms. You get agentless integration with Microsoft® Active Directory® and Terminal Services, LDAP, Novell® eDirectory and Citrix®, and you can integrate your firewall policies easily with 802.1X wireless, proxies, network access control and other sources of user identity.

Prevents known and unknown threats

Prevents known and unknown threats

The PA-220R blocks a range of threats, including exploits, malware and spyware, across all ports, regardless of common threat-evasion tactics employed. It limits the unauthorized transfer of files and sensitive data to safely enable non-work-related web surfing. It also identifies unknown malware, analyzes it based on hundreds of malicious behaviors, and then automatically creates and delivers protection.
