Providing Deeper Protection For 1 Million Varied Users

HEAnet is Ireland's national education and research network, with a user base comprising about 1 million people. As HEAnet CTO Ronan Byrne recently told The Irish Times, HEAnet needed a security solution that would offer not only strong web content filtering and malware protection, but also a way to adjust filtering levels depending on user — which, in HEAnet's case, can mean anyone from an educator to a 12-year-old student.

HEAnet selected Palo Alto Networks to provide what Dermot Williams, managing director of Palo Alto Networks partner Threatscape, describes as a "greater level of granularity" based on such a varied user base.

We're proud to partner with Threatscape and to be working with HEAnet. Read The Irish Times article here, and also see coverage of HEAnet's story in this fxcentre article.

Dermot was also kind enough to join us at Infosecurity Europe in London to talk about the importance of Palo Alto Networks channel partnerships and how we're continuing to win together in the region. Watch Dermot in the video below:
