Product Review

The Palo Alto PA-5050 offers a firewall throughput of 10 Gbps with App-ID enabled, ensuring efficient traffic management and security inspection. However, its threat prevention throughput is limited to 5 Gbps, which could be a bottleneck for high-traffic environments requiring advanced security features. The device supports a substantial number of sessions, VPN tunnels, and SSL VPN concurrent users, making it suitable for large-scale deployments, but potential users should consider the balance between performance capabilities and their specific throughput needs.


The Palo Alto PA-5050 is designed to secure networks with demanding performance requirements, offering a comprehensive suite of features to protect against a wide range of threats. At the core of its capabilities is a firewall throughput of 10 Gbps with App-ID enabled, ensuring efficient traffic management and security enforcement without compromising performance. For organizations prioritizing advanced threat prevention, the PA-5050 delivers with a throughput of 5 Gbps, effectively blocking a wide array of attacks in real-time. Additionally, its IPSec VPN throughput of 4 Gbps allows for secure, high-capacity site-to-site and remote access connections, accommodating the needs of a distributed workforce. The device supports up to 2,000,000 concurrent sessions with a rate of 120,000 new sessions per second, highlighting its capacity to handle high volumes of traffic seamlessly. With support for 4,000 IPSec VPN tunnels and tunnel interfaces, this model ensures secure connectivity across complex network topologies. For remote access, the PA-5050 can manage up to 10,000 GlobalProtect (SSL VPN) concurrent users, providing flexible and secure access to corporate resources. It also supports up to 45,000 SSL decrypt sessions and can manage 300 SSL inbound certificates, enabling detailed inspection of encrypted traffic for hidden threats. In terms of network organization and segmentation, the PA-5050 can host up to 125 virtual routers, 25 to 125 virtual systems, and 500 security zones, offering granular control over network traffic and policies. The device is capable of managing up to 20,000 policies, facilitating comprehensive security rule enforcement across the network. The hardware configuration includes a variety of interfaces for connectivity and management: - (12) 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports - (8) Gigabit SFP slots - (4) 10 Gigabit SFP+ slots - Management I/O includes (2) 10/100/1000 high availability ports, (1) 10/100/1000 out-of-band management port, and (1) RJ45 console port. Storage options for the PA-5050 are flexible, offering single or dual solid-state drives (SSDs) in configurations of 120GB or 240GB, with RAID 1 support for data redundancy. The system's power supply features redundant 450W AC units, with average and maximum power consumption rated at 270W and 340W, respectively. Thermal output is capped at 1,160 BTU/hr, and the device operates efficiently across a wide range of power inputs and environmental conditions, from 32° F (0° C) to 122° F (50° C). In summary, the Palo Alto PA-5050 is engineered for organizations requiring high-performance, reliable security solutions capable of adapting to complex, high-traffic network environments.
