RestorePoint Achieves Palo Alto Networks NextWave Traps Specialization

NextWave Traps Specialization Granted to RestorePoint for Building Advanced Endpoint Security Expertise and Business Practice

Atlanta, Aug. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RestorePoint (, a Palo Alto Networks Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) and Authorized Support Center, today announced that it has earned the Palo Alto Networks® NextWave Traps™ Specialization, awarded to Palo Alto Networks NextWave channel partners who have demonstrated the required expertise to successfully demo, sell, implement and support the Palo Alto Networks advanced endpoint protection offering.

The endpoint security market is at a key inflection point. Against the backdrop of a rapidly evolving threat landscape, where cyberattacks targeting the endpoint continue to increase in frequency, variety and sophistication, most organizations deploy a collection of legacy endpoint security products, along with antivirus, to protect their endpoints. However, this approach does not effectively prevent successful cyberattacks.

Palo Alto Networks Traps advanced endpoint protection replaces legacy antivirus and secures endpoints with a multi-method prevention approach that blocks malware and exploits, both known and unknown, before they compromise Windows® or macOS® endpoints, such as laptops, desktops and servers.

“As a data protection company, endpoint security is at the forefront of our business.  Prior to implementing Palo Alto Networks Traps, 60 percent of our client requests to restore data were a result of some type of malicious software like ransomware,” Abdul Altamimi, Founder and Chief Technology Officer, RestorePoint, Inc. “For our clients that have subscribed to Traps, RestorePoint has now been able to block successful ransomware attacks that leverage malware and exploits, known or unknown, eliminating the need for data restoral due to compromised endpoints.”

“We are redefining the endpoint security market together with our Traps Specialized partners by providing them with an educational and technical advantage to address a multibillion-dollar opportunity,” said Karl Soderlund, SVP, Worldwide Channels, Palo Alto Networks. “This program is designed to increase partner familiarity with Traps and meet the demand for truly next-generation endpoint security as part of the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform.”
