MoMA Modernizes Network Infrastructure

The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) has selected Palo Alto Networks' PA-2000 Series next-generation firewalls to strengthen and simplify its security infrastructure. The granular visibility and control of Palo Alto Networks firewalls enables MoMA to continue to leverage new Internet applications while eliminating potential network threats.

The high volume of network use from various public Wi-Fi applications and internal business requirements led MoMA to implement the PA-2000 Series, allowing the museum to adopt new Web-based applications while reducing inherent risks. MoMA can now identify all of the applications traversing its network, including those embedded in SSL encryption, and enforce appropriate user policies when applicable. By facilitating total application access and usage control while enabling broad, real-time threat prevention, the PA-2000 Series affords MoMA the resources to greatly reduce capital expenditures and operational costs by replacing ISA proxy servers.

"System availability, performance and network security are our primary concerns, but we also need to enable and promote the use of new Internet applications such as Facebook, Skype, approved P2P and video applications," said Richard Entrup, MoMA technology director. "The management interface of the Palo Alto Networks firewalls and its ability to dig deep into traffic—including SSL-encrypted applications—provides an intrinsic level of visibility and control to ensure our users and systems are protected, while not being too complex to navigate."

"We are pleased to be working with MoMA to help them leverage new Internet applications while eliminating any potential threats on their network," said Steve Mullaney, Palo Alto Networks Vice President of Marketing. "It's great to partner with innovative, forward-looking organizations such as MoMA, that recognize legacy 'port-blocking' firewalls are proving ineffective in today's application and threat landscape."
