Helps Security Professionals Stay Sharp in the Fight Against Sophisticated Cyber Adversaries

TEL AVIV, Israel – January 11, 2018 – Palo Alto Networks®, the next-generation security company, today announced the opening of its new office and research and development site in Tel Aviv, Israel. Palo Alto Networks new Israel office, adjacent to the HaShalom railway station, is in a prime location in a central area of the city, giving great access to transport and other facilities.

Focused on endpoint security and user behavioral analytics, the Palo Alto Networks Israel research and development team has grown significantly over the past 3 1/2 years. Since its initial establishment with the acquisition of Cyvera in 2014, the team has filled more than 100 new positions, which was further boosted by the acquisition of LightCyber in 2017. In parallel, other teams have grown and new functions are now housed in Israel, including customer support, sales and DevOps. This rapid expansion prompted the need for a new facility that enables collaboration, provides room for future growth, and features great amenities for an increasing employee base.

The new offices will immediately host over 200 employees across several operational functions, including IT, HR, facilities and finance. Tel Aviv is the only research and development site for Palo Alto Networks outside of its global headquarters in Santa Clara, California.


  • "We're thrilled to open our new Tel Aviv offices, where our unique culture will continue to thrive as we grow and scale our business. Over the last ten years, our growth has been fueled by the ingenuity, skills, and commitment of our global teams, who remain focused on maintaining trust in the digital age by preventing successful cyberattacks. Our Israel-based team has played a pivotal role thus far, and will continue to do so as we move forward."
    • Mark McLaughlin, chairman and chief executive officer, Palo Alto Networks
