NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- "We've got to focus on security," Jim Cramer said on CNBC's "Cramer's Stop Trading" segment.

That's why he thinks the stock will hit $100 a share. It's currently close to $89, up over 54% for the year to date. Following the recent hacking at JPMorgan Chase (JPM) , it's hard to imagine why other banks haven't starting paying Palo Alto Networks to protect them before it's too late, Cramer said. 

Cramer likes Palo Alto Networks and CEO Mark McLaughlin. He's also a fan of NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) .
