He's a veteran of the traditional firewall and security industry who struck out on his own six years ago to create a product for today's Web. The company he founded, Palo Alto Networks , sells a next-generation firewall that makes modern Web services safe for the workplace and gives companies precise control over how their employees can use them. "Our customers don't want to block Facebook," Zuk said. "They want to use it, but they also want some control." As interest in Web-based software has surged, so too have Palo Alto Networks' sales.
