Cogito Group has announced a new reseller agreement with Palo Alto Networks, the leader in enterprise security.

Palo Alto Networks offers an integrated platform using next-generation firewalls, cloud-based threat intelligence and advanced endpoint protection, helping enterprises and governments secure their organizations, detect and prevent known and unknown threats, and safely enable an increasingly complex and rapidly growing number of applications.

Richard Brown, CEO, Cogito Group said the shape of border protection is changing due to the increasing range of complex and sophisticated attacks, combined with the need for more complex packet inspection.

“As a result a traditional port based firewall can no longer be relied on to protect networks,” Mr Brown said.

“The Palo Alto Networks enterprise security platform fits in perfectly with Cogito Group’s commitment to providing its customers with dynamic innovative solutions that protect against a wide array of security threats.

“Using application based firewalling enables companies to have full control over what can be accessed and who can access resources internal and external to the company.

“The use of the enterprise security platform of Palo Alto Networks dramatically reduces the risk of a breach to both your network and your data.”
