|Serbian Company Delta Holding Pushes Back on Cybercrime With Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform|

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – August 1, 2016 – Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE: PANW), the next-generation security company, today announced that Delta Holding has selected the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform to prevent ransomware from disrupting business operations and control network traffic to strengthen overall enterprise security.
Delta Holding, a privately held holding company based in Belgrade, Serbia, had been attacked frequently by ransomware. This affected business productivity and added expense to protect vital data on separate backup systems. Delta Holding also needed two separate firewalls—one for its internal user network and another for the external-facing network, which provides central access to the internet for 100 geographically dispersed business offices. Plus, the Company had a third virtual private network (VPN) device to enable mobile network access. All these security devices were costly and time-consuming to manage.
By deploying the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform, Delta Holding eliminated ransomware and gained a comprehensive preventive shield against malware and zero-day attacks. By using the Palo Alto Networks platform to segment network traffic based on roles and responsibilities, Delta Holding reduced bandwidth consumption by 30 percent. Moreover, by consolidating on the Palo Alto Networks platform, the Company reduced device administration time by 20 percent and lowered support costs by $50,000–$60,000 over three years. Deployment was completed by Delta Holding’s network team with the support of local partners S4E CHS and E-Smart Systems.
