Partners in protection

Palo Alto Networks has extended its technology partnership with Siemens to improve the security of mission-critical networks and prevent the threat of cyberattacks on critical infrastructure


The companies will integrate Palo Alto Networks VM-Series Virtual Next-Generation Firewalls and Siemens Ruggedcom Multi-Service Platforms to enable continuous scalable hardware that will allow customers to extend consistent security policy and visibility across IT, critical OT and industrial control systems (ICS) infrastructure.

Commenting on the partnership, Anand Oswal, senior vice president of network security for Palo Alto Networks, said: “By bringing together our Next-Generation Firewall technology with Siemens’ experience in industrial control systems and unique environments, companies can protect their industrial control systems and other key infrastructure without compromising security, performance, or the ability to scale.”
