NitroSecurity and Palo Alto Networks have announced a partnership to offer a next-generation firewall integrated with content-aware security information and event management (SIEM).

The two companies have created an enterprise security solution that is designed to simplify compliance reporting, threat detection, real-time incident response and forensic investigations.

According to the companies, by storing information generated by Palo Alto Networks' firewalls with NitroView, the new solution offers enterprises the ability to analyse activity patterns and identify anomalies, sophisticated attacks and insider threats.

Punit Minocha, vice president of corporate and business development at Palo Alto Networks, said: “We're excited to welcome NitroSecurity into our partner ecosystem and look forward to delivering integrated solutions that help organisations more efficiently detect and combat today's ever-evolving network security threats.”

Doug Bailey, European vice president of business development at NitroSecurity, said: “NitroView delivers scalability and ‘single pane of glass' visibility into security logs and events and next-generation, risk-based correlation to detect external and insider threats that don't play by the rules. Combining that with data captured by Palo Alto Networks' firewalls fuels even more effective security initiatives.”
