SANTA CLARA, Calif. April 4, 2016 – Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE: PANW), the next-generation security company, and PwC’s Cybersecurity and Privacy practice are joining forces to help customer organizations establish security architectures, organizational structures and computing processes optimized to prevent cyber breaches.  

Palo Alto Networks and PwC will design a next-generation security framework to serve as a guide for customer organizations to establish a breach prevention-oriented security architecture. This framework incorporates the latest advances in security technology and addresses the modern threat landscape.

“The collaboration between Palo Alto Networks and PwC brings together a powerful combination of next-generation security technology, best practices and service offerings into a practical ‘blueprint’ to help organizations expand their ability to protect themselves from the latest cyberthreats and maintain trust in our digital age,” said Chad Kinzelberg, senior vice president of business and corporate development for Palo Alto Networks.

Additionally, security product and service offerings will be integrated to make it easier for customers to establish the ideal architecture that addresses the three critical aspects of a strong security posture: technology, people and process.

“We believe it’s critical that enterprise institutions become cyber resilient and that organizations enhance their risk management processes to better identify and block cyberthreats from compromising their networks. Combining efforts with Palo Alto Networks will enable us to offer customers next-generation security technology and insights that will allow them to confidently pursue new business ventures while protecting them from the latest cyberthreats,” David Burg, Global Cybersecurity Leader, PwC.
