"The breadth and volume of applications crossing enterprise networks like that of Raymond James Financial makes a 'block-or-nothing' approach a liability to the business because it fails to take into account the benefits that many applications can provide," said Rene Bonvanie, chief marketing officer at Palo Alto Networks. "Palo Alto Networks is pleased that Raymond James Financial thoroughly evaluated several competing products and concluded that our next-generation firewall technology can uniquely safely enable applications on their corporate networks while achieving the necessary performance."
