Westcon is now holding Palo Alto Networks’ three best-selling hardware firewalls in stock. It’s the first time the vendor has introduced a stocking model in EMEA and a key part of its strategy of matching mid-market expectations.

The ML-powered NGFW physical appliances enable users to stay ahead of unknown threats, see everything, including IoT, and reduce errors with automatic policy recommendations.

Enhanced customer experience

Holding stock across Europe (with Middle East to follow) enhances the customer experience for both partners and end users. Combined with Palo Alto Networks’ enhanced manufacturing processes and partner programme, it gives partners a tangible competitive advantage over competing vendors and solutions.

The reduction in lead time to just 1-3 days means much quicker order to cash, and opens up opportunities for partners to address new mid-market segments by providing faster and more cost-effective delivery. They’ll no longer lose a Palo Alto Networks deal to the competition based on lead times.

Built for business

The NGFW solutions stocked are PA-220s, PA-820s and PA-850s hardware units. Palo Alto Networks’ NGFW are consistently named as leaders in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant and are the first to leverage machine learning for proactive real-time and inline zero-day protection.

The highly effective PA-series prevention-focused architecture is easy to deploy and operate. Where you need protection, the PA-series is architected to provide consistent protection to the entire network perimeter, from the headquarters, branch offices and data centre to the mobile and remote workforce.
