Our first initial partnership with Palo Alto Networks began in 2011, the need for the Palo Alto Networks solutions came about when our customers needed a product that can address specific and unknown threats that are trying to enter a network, and Palo Alto Networks are particularly strong in that area.
Palo Alto Networks are a next-generation security company leading the way in the cybersecurity space and are currently the top firewall vendor in Gartner’s Enterprise Network Firewall Quadrant for 2016, they’re well renowned for safely enabling all applications and preventing advanced threats from achieving their objectives for tens of thousands of organisations around the world bringing an end to the era of breaches by uniquely integrating their Next-Generation Firewall, Advanced Endpoint Protection, and Threat Intelligence Cloud all controlled via their Pan-OS management console.
Security subscriptions are also extremely effective and popular with our clients. These help share context and prevent threats at every stage of an attack, whether you’re in the office, remote, on or off the network.
The subscriptions can:
• Cover mobile devices to connect to the corporate firewall (GlobalProtect).
• Protection against network borne malware/exploits/command and control traffic through IPS functionality (Threat Prevention)
• Protection against web borne threats from malware and phishing attacks whiles offering granular control (URL Filtering)
• Cloud based malware analysis scanning unknown files and links for malicious content that deliver automatic protection for subscribers from any threat detected anywhere in the world. (WildFire™)
Endpoint is also a key area of interest and Palo Alto Networks demonstrate their expertise through Traps. Advanced endpoint protection (Traps™) focuses on the core techniques leveraged by exploits in advanced cyberattacks. This approach prevents advanced attacks originating from executables, data files or network-based exploits (known or unknown) before any malicious activity can run. Since Palo Alto Network’s acquisition of Cyvera, ANSecurity are the first partner in the UK to deploy Traps.
As part of our Professional Services Programme we offer firewall health checks and fine tuning to ensure that your network is running at the optimum potential and is as secure as possible. Along with supporting clients in running Palo Alto Networks, Security Life Cycle Reviews. The Security Life Cycle Review is a report ran on a customer’s network giving full visibility on where risk and potential threats exists.
