“Palo Alto Networks has been an important partner in our Security Practice,” says Dolph Westerbos, Chief Executive Officer, Westcon Group.

Over the next few years, Palo Alto Networks and Westcon Group will invest in every theatre to take advantage of shared momentum, providing resellers access to a full technology ecosystem and more efficient global business operations.

“For years, Westcon Group has been a valuable ally to Palo Alto Networks,” adds Mark McLaughlin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Palo Alto Networks.
