Tech Data Corporation (Nasdaq: TECD) today announced that its Technology Solutions business, formerly a division of Avnet, has expanded its existing distribution agreement with Palo Alto Networks to cover channel partners and customers in Slovakia.

The Palo Alto Networks® Next-Generation Security Platform was built from the ground up for breach prevention, with threat information shared across security functions system-wide, and is designed to operate in increasingly mobile, modern networks. By combining network, cloud and endpoint security with advanced threat intelligence in a natively integrated security platform, Palo Alto Networks safely enables all applications and delivers highly automated, preventive protection against cyber threats at all stages in the attack lifecycle, without compromising performance.

This extended agreement builds on Tech Data’s existing security portfolio throughout the region, and will provide channel partners and their customers across Slovakia with a comprehensive cybersecurity portfolio. The distribution agreement brings game-changing cybersecurity expertise to Tech Data’s partner ecosystem and supports Palo Alto Networks’ growing footprint in the region.

Martin Zlocha, country manager, Tech Data Slovakia says, “The relationship with Palo Alto Networks enables our partners to offer a best of breed next-generation security platform. It is a perfect addition to our cyber security portfolio to address the growing needs for cyber security derived from cloud, mobility and IoT.”

Jason Beal, director of distribution for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Palo Alto Networks says, “This agreement provides great opportunity for partners in the Slovakian market to offer resellers, service providers, and customers state-of-the-art next-generation cybersecurity and enable a prevention-first approach with our unique capabilities that prevent successful cyberattacks and safely enable applications.
