Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE: PANW), the network security company, secures all inbound and outbound data network lines of the Heineken Music Hall (HMH), one of the largest concert venues in Amsterdam. The innovative Palo Alto Networks security platform offers HMH complete insight in the use of the network and delivers powerful monitoring and prevention of web threats and malware. It also improves multi-media services of partners, like broadcasting companies that stream live television and concert footage from HMH.

“We are very enthusiastic about the Palo Alto Networks firewall”, said Bob Klijnee, Operations Manager Facilitair at the Heineken Music Hall. “For us network outages are unacceptable; the interests are just too big. Palo Alto Networks is a renowned brand, with a proven, flexible technology, that is able to process high throughput data streams required by an organization like ours. To us, the Palo Alto Networks security platform is a guarantee for business continuity.”

WeSecure, a specialist in the field of IT security and a highly experienced Palo Alto Networks reseller and integrator in the Netherlands, delivered the firewall solution and provided aftersales service.

In 2013, the Heineken Music Hall celebrates its twelfth anniversary. In the span of a decade there have been many developments regarding networks and ICT. When the HMH changed to a different network configuration, the company decided to bring the remote firewall within its office walls. This was in view of the continuously growing data traffic and plans to offer visitors wi-fi connections in the future.

The Heineken Music Hall selected the Palo Alto Networks next generation firewall because it delivers unparalleled data throughput, enables network administrators to secure a large number of applications and allows user monitoring in a detailed, policy-based way.
