Global information security and risk management company, NTT Com Security announced that it has been named as both UK Partner of the Year and EMEA Reseller of the Year by Palo Alto Networks®, the leader in enterprise security. NTT Com Security, a global partner in the Palo Alto Networks NextWave partner program, implements and manages the Palo Alto Networks enterprise security platform as organisations look for support in their fight against increasingly complex threats.

The awards, announced at the Palo Alto Networks NextWave EMEA Partner Conference held October 8-10 in Barcelona, demonstrate the strength of the relationship between the companies.

Earlier this year, Palo Alto Networks and NTT Com Security announced a global managed security services agreement, which sees NTT Com Security provide extensive implementation, integration and managed security services around the Palo Alto Networks enterprise security platform. That announcement built on the companies’ existing global relationship, which includes NTT Com Security’s role as a successful managed services provider of Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls.

“We are thrilled to have NTT Com Security’s partnership with Palo Alto Networks recognized with this award”, says Simon Church, CEO, NTT Com Security. “Palo Alto Networks’ security offerings are a natural fit with NTT Com Security’s information security and risk management services and solutions. The combined force of both companies in turn brings our customers a new level of reassurance when securing the enterprise. We look forward to strengthening this partnership further and to continued success.”

“This has been another exciting year for Palo Alto Networks in EMEA, and NTT Com Security has played a critical role in our growth,” adds Luc Vervoort, Director EMEA Channels, Palo Alto Networks. “Working together, our companies have been successfully delivering the full benefits of our enterprise security platform. As such, this award recognizes the valuable work done by NTT Security to ensure our momentum continues.”
