October 19, 2015 – Palo Alto Networks (NYSE: PANW), the next-generation security company, today announced that Nexon Asia Pacific has developed a new managed cloud service secured by the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform.
Nexon delivers infrastructure and software to provide secure connectivity and productivity applications, unified communications, business intelligence and continuity, and cloud-based services to businesses. As part of its Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) portfolio, Nexon recently launched its Agile Business Cloud (ABC) service, which is supported and secured by the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform.
“Palo Alto Networks gave us visibility and application identification capabilities, high throughput, ease of use and the ability to rapidly onboard customers. In just eight months, we securely moved 25 customers to the cloud without any issues, including accounting firm Moore Stephens Sydney, and 24/7 mission-critical call center provider Customers 1to1. Basing our ABC cloud offering on Palo Alto Networks has improved and expanded our service to customers, driven new revenues, and set us up for even more growth. In the near future, we plan to roll out more services for customers based on the Palo Alto Networks Enterprise Security Platform.”, says Mr Barry Assaf, Director, Nexon Asia Pacific.
Palo Alto Networks has enabled Nexon to launch its ABC service to provide customers with superior security and performance. Nexon, a Palo Alto Networks NextWave Channel Program Silver Partner, reports that the increased visibility into applications and threats with Palo Alto Networks has improved security, and the superior throughput has led to faster service for customers. As a result of device consolidation, Nexon and its customers have also improved their operational efficiencies by 50 percent.
Before choosing Palo Alto Networks, Nexon thoroughly evaluated the Palo Alto Networks Next Generation Security Platform, which consists of a Next-Generation Firewall, Threat Intelligence Cloud, and Advanced Endpoint Protection. The deployment includes PA-5000 series firewalls, Threat Prevention, IPS, URL Filtering (PAN-DB), and GlobalProtect subscriptions and Panorama centralized management. Panorama enables Nexon to see and easily manage all of its distributed security devices and policies — and those of its customers — from a single location and interface.
