HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Nov 12, 2013) - SOS Security, a Forsythe Company, has been named Palo Alto Networks' Western Region Partner of the Year. Palo Alto Networks presented the award to SOS Security during its annual Americas Partner Conference, held October 2-4 in San Diego, California.

SOS Security was a key contributor to Palo Alto Networks' success in the Western region in fiscal 2013 and the overall top revenue contributor in Palo Alto Networks' South Central region last year. 

"Palo Alto Networks is a channel-driven company and we are privileged to partner with some of the best and highest-performing partners in the Americas," said Tracy Pallas, Vice President, Channels & Distribution, Americas of Palo Alto Networks. "We congratulate SOS Security and all of our outstanding Americas partners for a great year."

By partnering with Palo Alto Networks, SOS Security has been able to address a critical security problem for its clients: traditional stateful inspection firewalls have had holes in their protection, which can allow malicious, port-hopping applications to traverse the network and threaten an organization's data. The Palo Alto Networks Next Generation Firewall safely enables networks by offering greater visibility into applications, users and content. It leverages threat protection technologies to keep the enterprise safe and helps clients consolidate security devices while maintaining productivity and performance.

"SOS Security's go to market is the relentless pursuit of maintaining and improving our clients' Information Security," stated Mike Porter VP of Business Development. "We ensure that our clients intelligently manage risk, maintain compliance, accelerate and protect their business from new threats, and move the business forward. Palo Alto Networks is a great partner to work with and an important part of the portfolio of security technologies we provide to meet the needs of our clients."

Kirk Jones, President of SOS Security, added, "As we continue to expand into the western region and offer market leading solutions to our customers, products like Palo Alto Networks will be crucial to our success. I am excited to see what the future holds, as we are now also a support partner for Palo Alto Networks and offer clients First Call Support and Fully Monitored and Managed Services."
