Arrow extends UK security deal with Palo Alto

Arrow has extended its distribution relationship with Palo Alto Networks in the UK to support cloud security. The continued partnership aims to ensure that Palo Alto Networks' private, hybrid and public cloud offerings will be available within Arrow's overall product portfolio. 

The two companies will offer next-generation security as part of a data centre and cloud security solution to their specialist partner and managed service provider community. Arrow will also push it's own technical services, financial services and the ArrowSphere cloud platform. 

Arrow already distributes Palo Alto in other European countries, as well as in the Americas and Asia. Mark McHale, vice president of UK and Ireland for Arrow`s enterprise computing solutions business, said: “The new cloud and data centre security relationship with Palo Alto Networks is an illustration of the power of Arrow’s portfolio and our clear differentiation in the market. This truly demonstrates the strength of our solutions approach and the support Arrow can offer through its partner community.”

Jason Beal, EMEA distribution director at Palo Alto Networks, said: “As we focus our go to market on data centre partners, virtualisation partners, MSSPs and cloud partners, Palo Alto Networks and Arrow will offer deep technical expertise, partner support, and customer focus to meet the needs of our NextWave Partners across these areas.”
