As the only Palo Alto Networks MSSP partner headquartered in the greater Raleigh-Durham metro area, Net Friends has built its managed service offerings around Palo Alto’s industry-leading network security tools, including their next-generation firewalls and extended detection and response platform (Cortex XDR). Net Friends now delivers access to Palo Alto’s Advanced Threat Protection and DNS Security firewall subscriptions, Endpoint Protection products, Cloud Application Security (Prisma) services, and more. Additionally, Net Friends’ Information Security Office (ISO) now includes IT consultants who are Certified Network Security Engineers (PCNSE) in Palo Alto’s highest certification program, which requires mastery of their entire network security framework.
“Net Friends first purchased six Palo Alto firewalls to protect our data centers and offices back in 2013, and we have been so thoroughly impressed by how they have stayed miles ahead of every other firewall or endpoint protection vendor in the market by prioritizing investments in security features,” said John Snyder, President, and CEO of Net Friends. “The partner support we have experienced with the Palo Alto Networks team is unparalleled, and thanks to their help, we have uncovered so many solutions we can bring to our customers.”
“Net Friends has embraced the full suite of offerings from Palo Alto with enthusiasm,” said Colin Sill, a representative of Palo Alto Networks, “and it has been exciting to collaborate with their innovative team to deliver our security solutions to customers.”
