Palo Alto Networks Names Accuvant Western Region Partner of the Year

Denver – February 8, 2011 – Accuvant, the only research-driven information security partner delivering alignment, clarity and confidence to enterprise clients, today announced that it has been named Western Region Partner of the Year by Palo Alto Networks.

Accuvant was honored for 2010 revenue achievements, commitment to relationship growth, and uncovering new business opportunities.  Accuvant’s award was one of only five presented during the recent Palo Alto Networks North American Partner Summit in San Jose, Calif., which was attended by nearly 50 partners.

“We are honored to recognize Accuvant for this outstanding achievement,” said Brian Harmon, VP of Sales for Americas for Palo Alto Networks. “Accuvant joined our partner community in 2008 and has rapidly evolved their knowledge, capabilities and insight around our innovative firewall technology. It was clear from the start of our relationship that Accuvant would quickly become a top Palo Alto Networks Partner because of their proven track record of quickly and successfully embracing the market’s leading security solutions

“Accuvant is dedicated to offering the most innovative technologies to our clients to prevent threats and improve network security,” said Dan Wilson, co-founder and vice president of partner alliances for Accuvant. “Palo Alto Networks has redefined the firewall market by building a device that classifies traffic based on the accurate identification of the application, not just port/protocol information. I believe that the firewall will once again become the most strategically important security device in the network, largely due to their efforts.”
