GTT Partners with Palo Alto Networks to Power Its SASE Platform

Global cloud networking provider GTT Communications has entered into a managed security service partnership with cybersecurity solutions provider Palo Alto Networks. Palo Alto will power GTT’s new SASE platform.

The new GTT SASE platform will deploy a comprehensive set of security features into a single cloud-delivered platform that protects all application traffic while providing seamless connectivity to GTT’s global Tier 1 network for the best possible application performance and user experience for clients.

“Customers are seeking highly secure and flexible global network solutions to adapt to the rapidly changing business environment, new workforce models and ever-expanding security threat landscape,” said Don MacNeil, Chief Operating Officer (COO) at GTT. “Adopting the most advanced security and networking technologies, and enabling our customers to leverage them readily, is the centerpiece of our product strategy, and we are pleased to partner with Palo Alto Networks to meet the stringent security requirements of our customers that GTT’s SASE global network services platform will deliver.”

‘Secure Cloud Scalability’

The integrated networking and security functions would help reduce complexity, improve centralized control and efficiency, improve network performance and latency, and allow businesses to use a zero-trust network access approach to mitigate security vulnerabilities that can arise from a work-from-anywhere model.

Users will get network access based on their identity, device, and application, rather than their IP address or physical location, with the new GTT SASE platform, providing “seamless and secured” networking between users, private and public clouds, and the enterprise data center.

“Our partnership with GTT will bring forth an exciting opportunity for customers,” said Kumar Ramachandran, Senior Vice President of Products at Palo Alto Networks. “Many organizations are now turning to managed security service providers to achieve security that is easily implemented as an overlay service to simplify deployments at the branch. As a result, this new partnership will bring secure cloud scalability to the customers of GTT.”
