Data#3 wins Palo Alto Networks security award

Australian technology solutions provider, Data#3, has won the 2022 Palo Alto Networks Security Growth Partner of the Year award. The award was presented at the Palo Alto Networks Partner Summit, in Sydney on Thursday.

The award was for, “Demonstrating its superior expertise in delivering comprehensive security solutions to customers leveraging the full breadth of the Palo Alto Networks portfolio of solutions.”

Richard Dornhart, Data#3’s National Practice Manager for Security, said, “What a fantastic achievement to take home this award. With Australian businesses faced with a cyberattack every 8 minutes according to ACSC – security is front of mind for everyone. However, ever-evolving cyberthreats, skills shortages and distributed workforces, ultimately put pressure on organisations to effectively prepare, detect and respond.

“Too often cyber security is solely the responsibility of the IT team when, in fact, it’s everyone’s responsibility. If everybody understands the implications of an attack and takes ownership, vigilance becomes ingrained. That has to become the new normal for organisations. Working with world-leading technology vendors, such as Palo Alto Networks, we’re changing the narrative, helping customers to deliver their digital future, securely,” concluded Dornhart.”

John Tan, Data#3’s Chief Customer Officer, said, “For the last seven years in a row our customers have indicated in our annual survey that security is their number one technology priority. Working closely with Palo Alto Networks, our aligned strategies ensure we are providing industry-leading end-to-end solutions to our customers from consulting through to implementation and management. Congratulations to both the Data#3 and Palo Alto Networks teams on this well-deserved accolade.”
