Palo Alto Networks Surpasses $200 Million Bookings Run Rate

Company Continues Its Disruptive Impact on the Network Security Market

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 1, 2011) - Palo Alto Networks™, the network security company™, today announced that significantly ahead of its own expectations, it has achieved a bookings run rate* well above the US$200 million mark. In addition, Palo Alto Networks announced that:

  • Its cashflow from operations has been positive for 5 consecutive quarters and it intends to stay that way;
  • Its business in the most recent fiscal year was split approximately 60% domestic, 40% international;
  • Its global customer count has surpassed 4,500 enterprises. More than 20 of these customers, such as Qualcomm, eBay, Cricket, VeriSign, and the Los Angeles Community College District, have deployed over US$1 million worth of Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls;
  • Its business is expected to grow significantly ahead of the market and the competition in the next 12 (twelve) months.

"These numbers reflect the highly disruptive impact we have on the network security market," said Nir Zuk, founder, CTO, and member of the office of the CEO at Palo Alto Networks. "We are rapidly replacing the firewalls the incumbent vendors have sold to enterprises over the past 15 years. Our focus on product innovation and customer success has made that choice easy for organizations looking to modernize their network security."
