Envision Virgin Racing and Palo Alto Networks form Multiyear Partnership

Palo Alto Networks, the world’s leading cybersecurity company, and Envision Virgin Racing, the current leader in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship standings, announced a multiyear partnership. The organizations hope to raise awareness about their similar aims to promote a secure and sustainable future through this partnership.

Palo Alto Networks’ continuous advancements in cloud security, network security, and security analytics help resolve the world’s most pressing cybersecurity concerns. The company is a pioneer in providing cybersecurity solutions and trusted intelligence to assist enterprises in making secure progress in an increasingly connected world.

This will include the enhancement and optimisation of Envision Virgin Racing’s cybersecurity solutions, which are fundamental to the digital safety of the team. In addition, Envision Virgin Racing driver Robin Frijns, who is now second in the driver standing and a firm contender for the championship title, will also become an official ambassador of Palo Alto Networks.

“Both Envision Virgin Racing and Palo Alto Networks are at the forefront of new technologies that help us build a better future, and we are delighted to be joining forces with them. Envision Virgin Racing is driving new EV technologies that converge more and more with our daily activities, and the work that Palo Alto Networks does sits at the very centre of it, ensuring that we are all operating in a safe and happy environment,” said James Mercer, commercial director at Envision Virgin Racing.

“True partnerships are based on a shared aspiration to create great impact in the world. Envision Virgin Racing’s commitment to its Race Against Climate Change for a better future aligns with our vision of a world where each day is safer than the one before. We value this partnership and the opportunity to amplify each other’s mission, as we both continue to make progress on emerging challenges,” said Zeynep Inanoglu Ozdemir, chief marketing officer of Palo Alto Networks.

Palo Alto Networks and Google Cloud extend their partnership to make Cloud Adoption easier and safer

Palo Alto Networks and Google Cloud introduced Cloud IDS (Intrusion Detection System), a co-developed network threat detection service to help cloud clients solve crucial network security concerns.

Cloud IDS, powered by Palo Alto Networks’ industry-leading threat detection technology, offers Google Cloud users simple, managed, cloud native network-based threat detection in just a few clicks. The new service is the outcome of a year-long collaboration between Google and Palo Alto Networks, with the goal of integrating Palo Alto Networks’ best-in-class security with Google Cloud’s easy, safe, and scalable network.

“Businesses are betting on the cloud for their most important initiatives, and one of the most fundamental factors to their success will be security. We’ve had a tremendous strategic partnership with Google over the past three years that helps ensure that our joint customers can have a simple, secure journey to the cloud. This service takes that to new levels,” said Nikesh Arora, chairman and CEO of Palo Alto Networks.

“Customers demand uncompromising security that is simple to deploy and easy to manage. We built Cloud IDS to address these requirements, by bringing together Palo Alto Networks best-in-class security with Google’s secure and scalable infrastructure. This is one of the many ways Google Cloud and Palo Alto Networks are partnering together to deliver solutions that solve our customers’ security challenges,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO of Google Cloud.

Detecting attacks has been a big barrier for cloud network security teams until now, resulting in security policy compliance issues and security operations center blind spots. Cloud IDS is easy to set up and deploy, IDS is a way to acquire deep insight into network-based threats and serve industry-specific security compliance goals for enterprises who desire an easy path to network threat detection. 

Google Cloud and Palo Alto Networks have teamed up to protect clients’ applications and data while migrating to the cloud as smooth as possible. Palo Alto Networks’ VM-Series Virtual Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) was the first Palo Alto Networks product to be supported on Google Cloud in 2018, and the two companies have subsequently created other product integrations. Customers can use a collaborative security reference architecture to secure their Google Cloud environments using best practices, according to the firms. Palo Alto Networks was also named Google Cloud Technology Partner of the Year for 2021 this week, a designation it has held for the past three years.
