Palo Alto Networks™, the network security company, today announced that the University of Westminster has selected Palo Alto Networks to replace its legacy firewalls. The recently released Palo Alto Networks PA-5050 next-generation firewalls are now providing the University with superior visibility into its network and application control, complete threat prevention and URL filtering.

The university is using Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls to safely enable applications without compromising on security, which is ideal for any educational environment. The Palo Alto Networks solution will provide great return on investment (ROI) by consolidating legacy perimeter security products from Check Point and others into a single appliance, saving administering and maintaining multiple separate perimeter platforms.

The University of Westminster is a diverse and dynamic international education institution situated in the heart of London. With a vibrant learning environment and a commitment to educating for professional life, the University has a distinguished 170-year history, and continues to attract more than 20,000 students from 150 different nations. A wide range of Westminster's courses are independently rated as excellent, and the University's research leads the way in many areas including art and design, electronic engineering, and media. Internationalization, employability and sustainability are key elements of the University's vision for the future.

The university worked with one of its long-standing security partners, Khipu Networks, to evaluate the Palo Alto Networks solution and integrate it within a network infrastructure that supports more than 20,000 students and staff.

"Palo Alto Networks assists us in our mission to allow our students and faculty's to access many of new emerging web-based applications, but to first and foremost ensure that they and the network they are attached to remains protected," said Judie Ayoola, team leader of network security at the University of Westminster. "Seeing all that is actually running on our networks, finally makes this possible."

Palo Alto Networks technology enables universities like Westminster to accurately identify and control applications by user, scan content to stop threats, and prevent data leakage – all with a single network device. These next-generation firewalls enable universities and businesses to create granular, mission-relevant security policies and safely control applications, instead of the block-or-nothing approach offered by traditional port-blocking firewalls.

"Many educational institutions struggle with balancing access with security," said Nir Zuk, founder and CTO of Palo Alto Networks. "Legacy security technologies simply lack the ability to see all application traffic and identify suspicious behavior. Our next-generation firewalls are unique in their ability to see and control applications, users and content – not just ports, IP addresses and packets."
