BT to Offer Palo Alto Networks's Next Gen Security

BT will integrate the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform into its global portfolio of security services.

Specifically, BT's Assure Managed Firewall service will now integrate WildFire cloud-based malware prevention, which is a key component of the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform. It will be used to further secure the access to cloud-based applications, enabling enterprise customers to reap increased benefits from BT's Cloud of Clouds.

"Security is now a top concern for every business, and with continued growth in both the volume and sophistication of attacks, a breach prevention-focused strategy is essential to ensure a safe digital future for organisations and individuals alike. We are delighted to join forces with BT to help organisations safely enable business operations and protect their most valuable assets, managing both their risk and their security budgets," stated Mark McLaughlin, president and chief executive officer at Palo Alto Networks.
