SANTA CLARA, Calif., August 22, 2011 - Palo Alto Networks, the network security company, today announced it has been selected by Everything Channel as a 2011 CRN Emerging Technology Vendor. Palo Alto Networks is innovating in the firewall market with its next-generation firewall technology, which enables unprecedented visibility and control of applications and content – by user, not just IP address – at up to 20 Gbps with no performance degradation; this is a significant technology benefit that channel partners can in turn offer to customers.
The annual CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list features the most innovative vendors who deliver technology that is easy to use and can also generate the high margins solution providers require. Palo Alto Networks is dedicated to ensuring that its partners have the tools and resources needed to help bring the next generation of network security technology to their customers. In addition, 100 percent of Palo Alto Networks' solutions are brought to market through a global network of dedicated, value-added channel partners.
"The level of engagement and enthusiasm demonstrated by our partners has been essential component to our ability to redefine the network security market," said Rene Bonvanie, vice president of marketing at Palo Alto Networks. "Our shared success is due in large part to our partners' technology and sales expertise as well as their keen abilities to help guide customers through the technology adoption lifecycle. We are extremely pleased to be recognized as an Emerging Technology Vendor by CRN."
The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2005 or later, have revenue under $1 billion and have an active U.S. channel strategy. Final selection to the Emerging Technology Vendor list was made by the CRN editorial team after a review of submitted information.
"Enabling customers with the tools and strategies to solve real business problems has always been a priority to solution providers. As the market has grown increasingly competitive, so too has the demand for innovative, channel-friendly technologies," said Kelley Damore, vice president and editorial director of Everything Channel. "From the cloud to semantic technology, this year's list of Emerging Technology Vendors highlights the emphasis on innovation and ease of use that has been the hallmark of any successful channel offering."
