Citrix And Palo Alto Networks Team To Securely Deliver Applications Over Next-Generation Networks

Stocks in this article: CTXS PANW

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Palo Alto Networks today announced a multi-phase partnership with Citrix that brings together leading network security and application delivery capabilities. In response to strong market demand, Palo Alto Networks and Citrix will deliver jointly validated solutions that are designed to simplify how enterprises accelerate application delivery on next-generation networks.

As businesses embrace mobility, consumerization and desktop virtualization, IT organizations are looking for ways to transform their networks into an end-to-end cloud delivery platform, making it easy for employees to safely access any application from any device or location.

It is this shared vision for how enterprises can best evolve towards cloud networks that has inspired Palo Alto Networks and Citrix to align product development plans to capture the power of flexible next-generation platforms. Additionally, the two companies are collaborating across technical support teams, consulting organizations, and partner communities to coordinate the introduction of joint solutions for mutual customers. This partnership will provide the right technologies to deliver applications with cloud-level scalability but without compromising on security, high performance or availability of critical data and applications.

Palo Alto Networks brings to the partnership next-generation firewall technology that gives organizations the ability to identify, control, and safely enable applications while at the same time inspecting all content for all threats in real time. Citrix NetScaler® delivers complementary network capabilities to deliver any business application, cloud service or virtual desktop with the fastest performance and highest availability. When used together, the two companies deliver native application intelligence, template-based management and high performance to optimize the delivery of any application to any user.

As part of today's announcement, Citrix and Palo Alto Networks have agreed on a multi-phase relationship starting with validated joint solutions for virtual application and desktop virtualization solutions Citrix XenApp® and Citrix XenDesktop®, as well as popular enterprise applications. Customers will be able to avoid complex, piecemeal solutions, and alternatively use guidelines and expert resources from two industry leaders to design a next-generation network infrastructure that achieves availability, security, performance, flexibility and visibility. In the near term, the two companies will back these solutions with global support for enterprise customers and channel partners.
