Regional value-added distributor, StarLink has signed a distribution agreement with Palo Alto Networks, the enterprise security vendor. Under the terms of the agreement, StarLink will sell and support the vendor’s enterprise security platform offering through its network of channel partners to enterprise and government customers in the GCC.
“StarLink brings valuable experience and capabilities to our Middle East business,” said Jason Beal, Distribution Director EMEA, Palo Alto Networks. “The company’s IT security focus and expertise align well with our vision of a preventative approach to cyber threats, and we expect that their contributions will translate into exponential market share expansion and customer acquisition in the GCC. We look forward to serving customers hungry for a true enterprise security platform.”
“This event marks a key milestone for StarLink. Historically, we were renowned for bringing niche best-of-breed technologies into this region to assist customers in compliance and protect themselves against the latest threats. So we always looked at firewalls as being traditional security, until Palo Alto Networks emerged with the most disruptive firewall technology offering in the market,” said Avinash Advani, VP Business Strategy at StarLink. “As StarLink has grown, our portfolio has also evolved into a defense-in-depth framework, which can only be completed with the leading Palo Alto Networks enterprise security platform. We are excited to now be able to provide our partners with the most sophisticated and automated security offering.”
