    UBS' Brent Thill cuts estimates for over a dozen enterprise software stocks. He cites the usual worries (macro problems in the West, delayed deals, forex issues, poor visibility), and thinks Informatica and Qlik's warnings made clear the severity of the situation. As a result, he recommends software investors stay cautious during earnings reason, and thinks prices could remain volatile until later this summer.

    As Palo Alto Networks prepares for an IPO likely to give it a $2B+ valuation (symbol: PANW), the next-generation firewall (NGFW) vendor may want to thank Cisco (CSCO) for scrapping an NGFW project in order to focus on traditional firewalls, which are less adept at handling Web traffic by application. Juniper (JNPR) was also slow to respond, as was firewall leader Check Point (CHKP). Palo Alto is one of several focused upstarts causing headaches for Cisco.

    IT security threats are now more likely to occur at the application level than the switch/router level, argues Needham's Alex Henderson, and he thinks this puts Juniper's (JNPR) hardware at a disadvantage relative to solutions from  Check Point (CHKP), F5 (FFIV), and others. Also, like Goldman, Henderson is worried about the impact of Alcatel-Lucent's (ALU) arrival in the core router market. He sees as F5 as the best way to play the broader trend towards application-level networking.

    Nomura's Rick Sherlund is upgrading Fortinet (FTNT -0.8%) to Buy ahead of this afternoon's Q1 report, claiming "reseller checks show upside to current expectations," and Fortinet's sales initiatives are translating into channel share gains. He also notes Fortinet is the leader in the fast-growing Unified Threat Management hardware space. Rival Check Point (CHKP) fell yesterday after providing soft guidance.

    Check Point Software (CHKP +0.9%) edges higher after Oppenheimer says its mid-quarter checks "indicate solid demand for CHKP's blades and appliances." The firm adds adoption of the company's high-end 61000 and 21400 security appliances could boost FQ1 results, and that a growing interest among cash-rich tech companies to return capital to shareholders could lead to a dividend or additional buybacks.
