SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE: PANW), the next-generation security company, announced today that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Networking Competency status. This designation, which complements the AWS Security Competency that Palo Alto Networks achieved in 2016, recognizes that Palo Alto Networks provides proven technology and deep expertise to help customers adopt, develop and deploy networks on AWS.

Achieving the AWS Networking Competency differentiates Palo Alto Networks as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that provides specialized, demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success with specific focus on networking based on networking connectivity. To receive the designation, APN Partners must possess deep AWS expertise and deliver solutions seamlessly on AWS.

"The Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform provides customers with the ability to prevent successful cyberattacks regardless of where data resides – on the cloud, within the network or on endpoints," Adam Geller, vice president, Product Management at Palo Alto Networks. "Customers can grow and scale their AWS environments with peace of mind that they're gaining improved efficiency and automation while also enhancing their cybersecurity posture within the cloud."

AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Partner Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.

The Palo Alto Networks VM-Series Next-Generation Firewall for AWS provides customers with the granular visibility and control required to protect applications and data on AWS. When implemented as part of the Next-Generation Security Platform, customers can achieve consistent security on the endpoint, across the network and in the cloud.

"By deploying the Palo Alto Networks VM-Series on AWS, we have gained deeper visibility into our network traffic, so we can stop global bad actors from breaching our network in the first place," said Tom Fink, vice president, Technology Services at Verge Health. "We chose Palo Alto Networks because we wanted a platform that could best meet our dynamic growth, while providing us with the most comprehensive and easiest-to-manage approach for identifying and blocking cyberthreats in the cloud. Palo Alto Networks checks all of those boxes."
