Renaissance piles on Palo Alto Networking

20 Oct 2009

Renaissance Brands have been appointed as the only New Zealand distributor for Palo Alto Networking bringing its advanced firewall technologies and products to local organisations.

"We are excited about the opportunity this presents for our partners and resellers,” said Kevin Swainson, General Manager at Renaissance Brands. "The Palo Alto Networks approach enables customers to see and control applications, users and content – not just ports, IP addresses and protocols.”

He added: "This is a critical difference that allows enterprises to more effectively manage their network security. Legacy approaches lack visibility into, and control of, application traffic due to the outdated functionality of legacy security technology.”

He said that the company is excited to be able to offer the benefits of the Palo Alto product line to resellers in New Zealand and said Renaissance Brands plans to offer training and evaluation support.

Palo Alto Network’s ANZ Sales Director David Thrum said, "We are seeing good traction in the region, due to the application visibility and control capabilities of our platform, and partnering with Renaissance will further our growth.”

Palo Alto Networks firewalls provide graphic visualisation in graphs and reports of network applications with detailed user, group and network-level data categorised by sessions, bytes, ports, threats and time.
