Announced during the Palo Alto Networks Partner Summit at the Ignite '20 Cybersecurity Conference, these annual awards are presented to an elite group of Palo Alto Networks partners that over the past 12 months have excelled in the following areas:

  • Performance: Bookings that partners initiate, the pipeline they build, innovative new services launched, and net new customers added.
  • Enablement: Number of Palo Alto Networks technical, pre-sales, sales and post-sales training and certifications completed
  • Engagement: Nominated by the Palo Alto Networks team for exceptional engagement with Palo Alto Networks and its customers.

The Insight award reflects the company’s strengths in using Palo Alto Networks’ cloud-delivered secure access service edge (SASE) solutions to help clients modernize their security infrastructure in today’s increasingly cloud-first and distributed environment. Insight leverages Palo Alto Networks’ Prisma AccessTM to provide secure access to clients’ branch, remote and mobile users, including the use of Prisma Access’ global network of more than 100 locations in 76 countries to enable secure low-latency access across all of an organization’s public cloud, SaaS and data center applications.

“At a time when the rise of the cloud and the surge in remote workforces have fundamentally changed the security landscape, Palo Alto Networks and its next-gen security solutions are helping enterprises modernize their threat defense, ensure fast and safe user access, and transition to the newer SASE model of network security,” said Shawn O’Grady, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud + Data Center Transformation at Insight. “Their offerings are becoming an integral part of the security fabric for many of our clients in a world where conventional firewalls, VPNs and proxies no longer offer sufficient protection for users, applications or corporate networks.”

“At Palo Alto Networks, our partners play a critical role in securing the tech-enabled future of the enterprise, and never has that been more apparent against a backdrop of challenges in 2020,” said Don Jones, senior vice president, ecosystems, at Palo Alto Networks. “Enterprises rely on Palo Alto Networks technology and our trusted partners to bring the services and solutions that offer choice, flexibility, and simplicity. That adds up to better customer deployments and faster time to value. We’re proud to recognize Insight on their Americas SASE Partner of the Year for delivering valuable business outcomes and helping our mutual customers protect their digital way of life.”
