Palo Alto Networks Brings Next-Generation Security To The Cloud At VMworld® 2013

Stocks in this article: PANW

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE: PANW), the network security company™, today announced its next-generation security platform will be featured at VMworld® 2013, August 25-29 in San Francisco and October 15-17 in Barcelona.


While organizations have gained greater operational flexibility and lower data center costs by deploying virtualization solutions, the true promise of an agile, secure private cloud remains a challenge. Two of the key barriers are the ability to deploy security services at the same pace as virtual machines, and to unify security at the network and hypervisor levels. Working to address this challenge, Palo Alto Networks will demonstrate integration of the Palo Alto Networks next-generation security platform with VMware NSX, the network virtualization platform, at VMworld. This demonstration underscores how IT organizations can unlock all the benefits of the software-defined data center, from operational efficiencies to greater agility, without compromising security.  


  • "The VMware NSX network virtualization platform delivers the entire networking and security model in software, decoupled from the underlying physical infrastructure, allowing companies to achieve better business agility and speed. The combination of the VMware NSX Distributed Firewall with the Palo Alto Networks next-generation security platform will unify protection across physical and virtual environments in the software-defined data center."

 -- Hatem Naguib, vice president, Cloud Networking and Security, VMware


  • "In order to truly unlock the potential of the software defined data center, organizations must be able to accelerate deployment of business critical applications with transparent security enforcement and the best protection possible.  The combination of VMware NSX and the Palo Alto Networks next-generation security platform allows customers to realize a streamlined and highly secure cloud experience."

-- Lee Klarich, senior vice president of product management, Palo Alto Networks

To see the demonstration and hear more about the benefits of using the Palo Alto Networks next-generation security platform in combination with VMware NSX, visit the Palo Alto Networks booth #2305 August 25-27 in San Francisco.

Additionally, Palo Alto Networks and VMware will jointly host at 1:00 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 27 a breakout session in San Francisco, "VMware NSX and Next-Generation Security from Palo Alto Networks", providing further details.
