DENVER – April 22, 2020 – Optiv Security, a security solutions integrator delivering end-to-end cybersecurity solutions, and Palo Alto Networks band together to solve secure and scalable remote access needs for clients using Palo Alto Networks Prisma Access.


Nearly every organization is provisioning remote access solutions to ensure secure connections to enterprise applications for their employees, but security teams are oftentimes met with high costs, complexity, and gaps in security when using multiple point products. Access can be inconsistent in environments with various software-defined perimeters, hindering operationalization and overall security posture.


Within a complete secure access service edge (SASE) solution, each organization’s custom security policies are managed and applied uniformly across its remote network for constant, seamless access.


Optiv’s outcome-driven service offerings, fully integrated with Palo Alto Networks solutions and technologies, ensure mutual clients can unleash the full potential of Prisma Access. Together, Optiv and Palo Alto Networks emphasize business continuity and deliver networking and security to all users anywhere there are, whenever they need it, from a globally distributed cloud platform.


Prisma Access is one of the industry’s most comprehensive SASE platforms. Using Optiv’s Quick Start implementations and full transformation services, organizations can be sure they are receiving the full benefit of their investment.


“Optiv Security is guiding clients through a myriad of cybersecurity options by leading with joint solutions from Palo Alto Networks. They have invested a significant amount of technical resources and support to Prisma Access, and now have dozens of badged individuals trained on delivering this solution to their customers,” said Karl Soderlund, senior vice president, worldwide channel sales, Palo Alto Networks. “In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Optiv acted swiftly in creating a client response solution by including Prisma Access in their Surge Support offer. This solution combines best-in-class technology from Palo Alto Networks with Optiv’s robust services organization to provide secure access and scalability to their clients.”


Optiv Security’s team of more than 1,500 cybersecurity experts currently hold more than 400 active Palo Alto Networks certifications and have also completed several hundred Palo Alto Networks engagements for mutual clients in the past year. Joint efforts between Optiv and Palo Alto Networks drive organizations to plan, build, and run successful cybersecurity programs specifically focused on business outcomes that help clients solve the largest and most complex cybersecurity and digital challenges.
