SINGAPORE, Sept 12, 2019 - Palo Alto Networks (NYSE: PANW), the global cybersecurity leader, today announced that it has been recognised as the 2019 Asia-Pacific Cloud Workload Protection Solution Vendor of the Year by Frost & Sullivan.
A long-time recipient of Frost & Sullivan's Asia-Pacific awards, this is the first time Palo Alto Networks has been awarded for its cloud security leadership. It is also the first company in the industry to clinch the award from Frost & Sullivan.
Building on its cloud security leadership, Palo Alto Networks launched its Prisma ™ Cloud security suite earlier this year to provide customers with complete visibility and recommended configurations across their entire cloud environment.
Frost & Sullivan's Asia-Pacific Best Practices Awards identify and honour best-in-class companies that have demonstrated excellence in their respective industries. All recipients were identified based on in-depth research conducted by Frost & Sullivan's analysts.
'It's remarkable to have received this humbling recognition just months after launching our cloud security suite in the Asia-Pacific region. This win helps establish Prisma as an industry benchmark for cloud security and is validation for our team that we're on the right track in understanding businesses' pain points and addressing their cloud security concerns.'
Elaine Liew, regional vice president for cloud, Asia-Pacific, Palo Alto Networks
'Having dominated the network security market, Palo Alto Networks has extended its leadership to cloud security, fueled by its strategic acquisitions of Evident.io and RedLock in 2018. Its cloud workload protection offering addresses evolving customer needs on their cloud adoption journey in today's highly dynamic business environment. Coupled with its continuous efforts in expanding cloud security offerings, Palo Alto Networks is able to deliver comprehensive coverage of security protection across network, endpoints and cloud.'
