A class action lawsuit has been filed against Palo Alto Networks, Inc. (“Palo Alto Networks” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: PANW) and certain of the Company’s current and former senior executive officers alleging violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  The Palo Alto Networks lawsuit is brought on behalf of all persons and entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Palo Alto Networks common stock between August 18, 2023 and February 20, 2024, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”), and investors have until April 26, 2024 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff of the Palo Alto Networks class action lawsuit.
