Thanks for following along during an action-packed opening day at Ignite 2015!
Today's kickoff general session featured members of our executive team discussing the importance of an enterprise security platform and many of the ways we're expanding and enhancing what Palo Alto Networks can offer. Watch below to hear from our executives and Ignite attendees about today's announcements and what they mean for our partners and customers:
Advanced threats are prevalent, growing in volume and sophistication. And cyber criminals have easier, cheaper access to the tools of the cyber crime trade. That means legacy security technologies can no longer keep up, and that organizations need to think beyond detection and remediation to a security posture focused on prevention.
"We need to increase the cost of an attack to the point where an attack can only be successful once," said Mark McLaughlin, Palo Alto Networks President and CEO. "It is impossible to keep up with the threat if the only answer is to clean up after the fact."
Here's a look at today's announcements:
- AutoFocus: Actionable Cyber Threat Intelligence Like You've Never Seen Before
- Palo Alto Networks-AirWatch Integration: A Breakthrough in Mobile Security
- Traps 3.2 Has Officially Launched
- Announcing This Year's Cybersecurity Canon Honorees
