SAN DIEGO - August 17, 2011 - redIT, the emerging leader in secure, customizable private cloud and data center services, announced today their strategic partnership with Palo Alto Networks™ to implement the company's enterprise-class firewalls for its clients.
The agreement reaffirms redIT's commitment to developing and preserving the most robust, best of breed infrastructure for its clients so they can focus more on their core businesses and less on maintaining their networks.
"We choose our technology partners carefully and with an unwavering commitment to what matters most – security," says Joe Alfrey, Managing Director of redIT US. "Cloud computing is both very flexible and more cost effective for organizations than building and supporting their own in-house systems -- but only when the data is secure. We take great pride in being the most flexible and dynamic private cloud services company with the most secure network infrastructure for all types of businesses. This is what sets redIT apart."
Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls enable unprecedented visibility and granular policy control of applications and content – by user, not just IP address – at up to 20Gbps with no performance degradation. Based on patent-pending App-ID™ technology, Palo Alto Networks firewalls accurately identify and control applications – regardless of port, protocol, evasive tactic or SSL encryption – and scan content to stop threats and prevent data leakage. Enterprises can for the first time embrace Web 2.0 and maintain complete visibility and control, while significantly reducing total cost of ownership through device consolidation.
"Through this partnership, redIT can now provide its extensive customer base – including midmarket organizations – with enterprise-class network security protection," said Punit Minocha, vice president of business and corporate development at Palo Alto Networks. "Given the heightened awareness of security concerns today, we expect to see significant next-generation firewall uptake from customers of redIT's customizable private cloud services."
