Westcon, a value-added distributor specializing in security, unified communications, network infrastructure and data centre solutions, has worked with Palo Alto Networks for several years on a regional basis. This new agreement will see their relationship expand to more than 40 countries around the world.
“Palo Alto Networks has been an important partner in our Security Practice,” said Dolph Westerbos, Westcon Group CEO, in a statement. “Unifying our relationship globally just makes sense. This provides our reseller and service provider partners with a broader and more consistent security portfolio around the world, and leverages Westcon’s technical and market expertise to drive new revenue.”
Palo Alto Networks is known for its firewall, security manager and endpoint protection solutions, and it boasts a strong partner program for both resellers and managed security service providers.
“For years, Westcon Group has been a valuable ally to Palo Alto Networks,” said Mark McLaughlin, chairman and CEO of Palo Alto Networks, in a statement. “We are pleased to have now a major worldwide distribution partner committed to shared success in a global market hungry for a true next-generation enterprise security platform.”
