ZPE SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES INTEGRATION WITH PALO ALTO NETWORKS TO PROVIDE ENHANCED NETWORK SECURITY

Today, ZPE Systems, Inc., a leading solutions provider for network infrastructure management solutions, announced an integration with Palo Alto Networks to provide enhanced networking, out-of-band management and security capabilities to branch locations for customers, including those with very remote locations.

The integration combines ZPE Systems’ Nodegrid hardware and management software with Palo Alto Networks VM-Series virtual firewalls . ZPE Systems’ Nodegrid platform with Palo Alto Networks VM-Series allows enterprises to consolidate and customize their network infrastructure, while safeguarding their traffic with the advanced security of a virtual firewall. Customers benefit from flexible, reliable network management and connectivity, along with proven protection for in-band and out-of-band paths.

ZPE Systems’ Nodegrid Services Router (NSR) solutions come in a variety of form factors for various applications, resulting in a network stack that’s easy to deploy, scale and manage even in isolated and obscure locations. These NSR solutions provide additional value thanks to reliable backup connections via 4G LTE cellular failover, which give redundancy to connected devices while improving rapid response and Mean Time to Innocence (MTI).

According to ZPE Systems’ CEO and Co-Founder Arnaldo Zimmermann, “Together, Palo Alto Networks’ virtual firewalls and our NSR solutions give customers a secure and streamlined infrastructure, with centralized management that puts everything in one place — firewalls, servers, routers and even power controls.”

“With this integration, customers can extend their network security with VM-Series and add our SD-WAN and IoT Security subscriptions that can be managed from a single interface, plus deploy Wi-Fi with ZPE Systems’ NSR solution,” said Mukesh Gupta, Vice President of Product Management, VM-Series at Palo Alto Networks. “This enables organizations to have universal customer premises equipment capabilities, known as uCPE, to help protect their branch locations.”
