In the report, "The Forrester Wave™: Endpoint Security Suites, Q4 2016," Forrester noted, "Palo Alto Networks offers strong malware-prevention and exploit-blocking capabilities." According to Forrester, "As traditional approaches to endpoint security become outdated and less effective, improved threat detection accuracy and automatic containment measures will dictate which providers lead the pack."1
The Forrester Endpoint Security Suite Wave analyzed Traps version 3.3 alongside technologies from 14 other vendors using 25 different criteria. In August 2016, Palo Alto Networks released Traps version 3.4 with enhancements, including static analysis via machine learning, trusted publisher identification, quarantine of malicious executables, and grayware classification.

The malware and exploit prevention capabilities of Traps alleviates the need for legacy antivirus products to protect endpoints and provides cutting-edge technology to organizations that want to prevent successful cyber breaches."
