Success follows Nir Zuk around. Palo Alto Networks was one of the hot enterprise IPOs in 2012.
In his early days at Check Point Software, Nir actually helped invent the firewall industry that Palo Alto Networks disrupts. Nir was also CTO at firewall maker NetScreen Technologies, acquired by Juniper Networks in 2004 for $4 billion. He co founded another security company before that, OneSecurePrior.
