Palo Alto Networks and VMware, Inc. Expand Strategic Partnership to Address Mobile Security Needs
Mar 31 15
Palo Alto Networks and VMware, Inc. announced an expansion of their strategic partnership to address mobile security needs. Mobile computing is transforming the ways organizations do business. Users no longer stop working once they leave the office, and they need secure access to business information at anytime, from anywhere, and from any device. This introduced new security challenges for organizations by exposing them to new risk vectors and creating a need to protect business information and applications accessed via employee-owned devices, while also respecting the privacy of personal information and traffic. To address these challenges, Palo Alto Networks and VMware will integrate their enterprise security and mobile management technologies to give organizations a rich and unique combination of mobile device management (MDM) with advanced threat prevention for secure enterprise BYOD support. This builds upon endeavors started in 2014 when the companies announced a software-defined data center reseller agreement and network security and network virtualization solutions.
