Palo Alto Networks and VMware have announced an expansion of their partnership to address mobile security needs.
The two companies will integrate their enterprise security and mobile management technologies to give organisations a rich and unique combination of mobile device management (MDM) with advanced threat prevention for secure enterprise BYOD support.
Lee Klarich, senior vice president of product management at Palo Alto Networks, said: “Employees love the flexibility that using their mobile devices for business provides them, but IT teams often struggle to enforce security policies without compromising usability. Integrating our Next-Generation Firewall, WildFire and GlobalProtect technologies with the AirWatch platform addresses the concerns of both parties, giving users a positive mobile experience while existing security policies are enforced.”
Noah Wasmer, vice president of end-user computing at VMware, said: “In a world of rising mobile threats Palo Alto Networks and VMware are building upon the comprehensive AirWatch mobility platform to provide another layer of security, automation and ease of management for customers around the globe.”
