RSA CONFERENCE 2014 - Palo Alto Networks®, the leader in enterprise security, and VMware, Inc. today extended the companies’ strategic partnership with the announcement of a new reseller agreement and the general availability of a previously announced integrated network security and network virtualization solution. The integrated Palo Alto Networks and VMware solution enables customers to use the distributed network and services insertion capabilities of VMware NSX™ with the Palo Alto Networks next-generation security technologies to easily deploy, scale, safely enable and protect applications for software-defined data centers. As a result, customers can realize more agility and efficiency through centralized policy management and implementation.

The solution includes the Palo Alto Networks VM-1000-HV (a new VM-Series model designed for VMware NSX interoperability), security subscription, the Panorama centralized management platform and premium customer support combined with the VMware NSX network virtualization platform. Today, the security components are available from Palo Alto Networks resellers and the VMware NSX network virtualization platform is available from VMware. Beginning in the second quarter of 2014, customers will be able to purchase the complete bundled solution as a packaged offering directly from VMware and VMware Elite NSX partners.

To simplify deployment, Palo Alto Networks and VMware have published a validated technical reference design with key implementation use cases. Enterprises interested in transforming security for their software-defined data centers can visit the Palo Alto Networks booth #3433 and VMware booth #1615 at the RSA Conference for more information on the solution.
