At Palo Alto Networks, our values of disruption, execution, collaboration, integrity and inclusion guide everything we do to protect our digital way of life. Those values are deeply held principles of the women and men who have proudly represented our Armed Services. Our shared vision of a world where each day is safer and more secure than the one before – is fundamental to who we are. So, it is by design that hiring veterans is critical to Palo Alto Networks success.
Veterans' leadership, adaptability, problem-solving, teamwork and commitment help drive our customers to a safer digital future. Our veterans have found a new mission in cybersecurity, shifting from battlefields to the latest, most demanding threat of our age.
Our philosophy starts with our board members and executives, and continues into our recruiting teams, with every individual committed to hiring and developing veterans across every business function.
As a proud Military Friendly® Employer and founded by military veterans, we've formed our Veterans Program to help veterans and transitioning service members foster new skills and enjoy successful careers in cybersecurity.
“As the son of a late Indian Air Force officer, I have a deep and personal regard for those who serve in the military. When I think about the increasingly complex cybersecurity challenges that governments and industries face, I know that veterans—many of whom bring specialized training and expertise into their civilian careers—will be a critical resource for Palo Alto Networks. We remain committed to engaging, supporting, training, and hiring veterans across the world.” Nikesh Arora, CEO
Palo Alto Networks isn’t just a veteran friendly company, we are firmly committed to veteran’s education in cybersecurity outside of our organization, too. To that end, we provide free digital learning courses enabling a veteran to learn everything from the basics of malware to managing a global infrastructure of Next-Gen Firewalls. Along the way, veterans can demonstrate their knowledge by becoming certified, providing meaningful skills veterans can utilize throughout the cybersecurity industry.
We offer three levels of certification:
Our goal is to create a community where veterans from any military background or country can flourish. Through sponsored events, networking opportunities and mentorship resources, veterans can grow at Palo Alto Networks and in the wider tech industry.
Our University Recruiting team partners with various U.S. military academies and other service-related organizations to identify cadets and active-duty service members for summer or year-long internships.
