The Technology Partner Program enables an open ecosystem for interoperability that delivers security and reliability
Providing organisations with a wide range of security solutions, a leading cyber-security firm – Palo Alto Networks expands its Technology Partner Program.
Featuring 900 integrations across network and cloud security, as well as security operations, including integrations that are available in the Cortex XSOAR Marketplace, the company’s Technology Partner Program is one of the largest security systems and ecosystems. The Technology Partner Program enables an open ecosystem for interoperability that delivers security and reliability.
The new enhancements provide a streamlined support structure and offer new resources and tools to help partners drive the adoption and integration of Palo Alto Networks into business environments:
- Improved Automation: Integration development processes, flexible learning, automated validation and qualification
- Programmatic Engagement: Fostering continuous innovation, flexible learning and go-to-market (GTM) support
- Partner Portal: Unveiled in August, a new portal with a self-guided approach to manage the partnership, a simplified application process, an intuitive on-boarding experience and real time integration status updates
- Strategic Tiering: A new four-tiered program structure, consisting of Elite, Premier, Select and Self-Service partners, will enable partners to grow and expand their businesses through Palo Alto Networks
Tiering structure is the most notable enhancement in the program. To benefit from development resources, GTM resources, certifications, training and technical support, partners are selected and invited to join at the Elite, Premier and Select tiers. Whether the technology is complementary to the Palo Alto Networks portfolio of products and a product management board review for final evaluation, selection is based upon market research and assessment. The Self-Service tier provides a pathway for emerging security partners to engage with Palo Alto Networks as they continue to grow their business.
“The Palo Alto Networks Technology Partner Program puts the customer front and centre by providing them with an ecosystem of vetted solutions that are integrated with other critical technologies”, said Maureen Little, Vice President, Technology Partners, Okta. “We’re pleased with the enhancements to the program. The updates will enable partners to streamline new integrations and make it easier to collaborate”.
