(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Digital Scepter, a boutique security integrator with a focus on offering quality network perimeter security systems, announced today that it has attained Platinum Partner status with next-generation firewall provider Palo Alto Networks. Awarded to partners who facilitate significant sales and demonstrate extensive expertise, this new recognition identifies Digital Scepter as an authority on the provision of all Palo Alto Networks solutions.
“This level of partnership with Palo Alto Networks marks the next step in our ongoing relationship,” says Jon Robinson, Director at Digital Scepter. “Everybody at Digital Scepter firmly believes that Palo Alto Networks offers the best firewall solution, and that’s why we find ourselves recommending these products time and time again to our enterprise customers. People come to us for expertise and we knew very early on that Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewall solutions were set to change the face of firewall protection.”
Palo Alto Networks has fixed the problems associated with traditional firewalls by combining three identification technologies that provide visibility and control over applications, users, and content. App-ID identifies exactly which applications are running on the network, as well as the associated risks, so administrators can deploy comprehensive application usage control policies for inbound and outbound traffic. User-ID integrates with enterprise directory services to link network activity to users and groups—not just IP addresses—for application visibility, policy creation, logging and reporting. Content-ID combines a real-time threat prevention engine with a comprehensive URL database to detect and block a wide range of threats, limit unauthorized transfer of files and data, and control non-work related Web surfing.
Digital Scepter’s new status as a Palo Alto Networks Platinum Partner marks the most recent step in an ongoing process of growth based on gaining expertise in how best to use Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls. Digital Scepter has previously attained Accredited Configuration Engineer (ACE) status from Palo Alto Networks, certifying that the company has the relevant experience and expertise to implement any Palo Alto Networks solution. In addition, Digital Scepter currently holds Certified Network Security Engineer (CNSE) status, signifying the company’s deep, insightful understanding of the full Palo Alto Networks firewall range and making it a popular choice for consultancy and advice on the best firewall network design.
“Digital Scepter can provide customers with an overall, comprehensive service, and we have the certification to prove that we can do that every time,” says Robinson. “We have invested extensive resources into Palo Alto Networks protection, because we are completely confident that this is the firewall of the future. We are committed to giving our customers the highest quality products available, and as a result we continue to be committed to Palo Alto Networks firewalls.”
Digital Scepter has grown to become a leading reseller of perimeter protection technology because the company understands the threats of the technology world and is able to identify the best products to resolve these concerns. As a new Palo Alto Networks Platinum Partner, Digital Scepter is uniquely placed to remain a driving force behind the adoption of next-generation firewalls.
