Company Strengthens Security, Blocks Malware and Rogue Traffic, Increases Network Performance; Reduces Security Policy Management Time by 30 Percent
SANTA CLARA, Calif. October 15, 2015 – Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE:PANW), the next-generation security company today announced that regional fresh produce distributor UNIVEG Trade Italy has selected and deployed the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform to strengthen security and boost network performance of its computing environment.
UNIVEG Trade Italy, part of the global UNIVEG Group of companies, supplies merchants across northern Europe and the Mediterranean with fresh fruits and vegetables. The company relies on a sophisticated transportation and logistics network to ensure accurate and timely deliveries so customers receive produce while it is still fresh. UNIVEG Trade Italy chose the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform to prevent malware and other cyberthreats from disrupting business, enabling the company to consistently meet its high quality and efficiency standards.
"With the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform we can now protect critical enterprise services that are exposed to the Internet with a level of security we never had before. Because we have control over the traffic on our networks, business applications run faster and remote users can connect without long wait times. This helps our employees in Italy and Spain be more productive, and ensures that important logistics are carried out efficiently to provide our customers with the fresh produce they expect." - Paolo Brunello, IT Manager, UNIVEG Trade Italy
The Palo Alto Networks platform, which consists of the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall, Threat Intelligence Cloud, and Advanced Endpoint Protection, provides the company’s security team with in-depth network visibility and granular control to block any unauthorized traffic. The Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls, along with subscriptions for Threat Prevention and URL Filtering using PAN-DB, enable UNIVEG Trade Italy to maintain high performance of its critical logistics and distribution services to ensure product freshness and customer satisfaction.
Compared to UNIVEG Trade Italy's previous security solution, policy management is also much easier and requires 30 percent less time using the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform.
