Network Critical and Palo Alto Networks are both dedicated to enabling their customers to stay focused on business operations and not on the task of network administration.
Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) February 29, 2012
Network Critical, the leading innovator of next generation network access and port aggregation products announced today the addition of Palo Alto Networks to their Technology Partner Program. The program is designed to foster collaboration among select technology leaders with the goal of providing complete security and monitoring solutions to service provider, mobility and enterprise customers.
The blurring of lines between private and business communications coupled with the explosion of smart mobile devices creates a need for expanded security that includes application visibility, awareness and control that extends beyond the office to wherever mobile workers are. "Business critical data and corporate assets are increasingly being stored at the data center and accessed by a highly mobile workforce," said Punit Minocha, Vice President of Business and Corporate Development at Palo Alto Networks. "As such, it is crucial that our customers benefit the most from their network security investments for the entire infrastructure – from deep within the data center to smartphones and tablets at use in the distributed enterprise."
A permanent and flexible network access foundation is critical to the design of next generation security architectures. Carrie Manion, Global Vice President of Sales and Marketing said, “Network Critical and Palo Alto Networks are both dedicated to enabling their customers to stay focused on business operations and not on the task of network administration. By providing risk free, simplified access to next generation security devices, Network Critical helps customers strengthen network protection while maintaining the highest level of network reliability and availability.”
