Palo Alto Networks launches a new partner status

Palo Alto Networks launches a new partner status

At the start of every fiscal year, Palo Alto Networks introduces numerous innovations. This year, Palo Alto Networks expanded its NextWave partner program by adding a new partner level to the already existing three levels Innovator, Platinum Innovator and Diamond Innovator: the Registered Partner level.

This partner level rounds of the NextWave program by offering resellers an easier entry into the Palo Alto Networks world. Palo Alto Networks makes it possible for partners who have not been the focus so far to easily enter into a partnership with fewer requirements and close coaching by Exclusive Networks.

Here are some of the facts for this new partner level:

  • Effective as of November 1, 2021
  • Partner access to the partner portal, with certain limitations
  • Exclusive Networks supports Registered Partners by taking care of deal registrations
  • Project protection guaranteed once a deal registration has been approved
  • Support provided by the Exclusive Networks Authorized Support Center

This expansion of the partner program is rounded off with the launch of the new PA-400 Series next generation firewalls. This high-performance series at attractive prices makes it possible for NextWave partners to penetrate new customers segments that were not optimally served by the existing portfolio.
