Palo Alto Networks is a regular contributor to vulnerability research in Microsoft, Adobe, Apple, Android and other ecosystems. By proactively identifying vulnerabilities, developing protections for our customers, and sharing them with Microsoft for patching, we are removing weapons used by attackers that compromise enterprise, government and service provider networks.
