Palo Alto Networks unveils cybersecurity lab at new regional HQ in Singapore

Palo Alto Networks has unveiled its state-of-the-art cybersecurity solutions lab at the company’s new regional headquarters in Singapore.

Designed to help companies combat the ever-growing threat to Asia Pacific cyberspace, the new high-tech facility comes as part of the relocation of Palo Alto Networks regional headquarters from Suntec City Tower 2, to its new home at 1 Temasek Avenue, Millennia Tower, Singapore.

The new regional headquarters and cybersecurity lab will provide customers the opportunity to learn about the latest cutting-edge technology for combatting cybercrime, including advanced persistent threat (APT) protection, firewall, IDS/IPS, and URL filtering. This is delivered via live hands-on demonstrations by cybersecurity experts of Palo Alto Networks or via proof-of-concept testing, on-site or from anywhere in the world via video conference.

“This is an exciting day for Palo Alto Networks. As the fastest growing security company with more than 16,000 customers, our company continues to see tremendous growth and the Asia Pacific region is a key market for us; we have significantly strengthened our business since establishing a base here in 2009,” says Mark McLaughlin, CEO of Palo Alto Networks.

“The Asia Pacific region is home to the highest number of internet users in the world, with exponential growth in online banking, shopping and social media activity making it a prime target for cybercriminals. Our new regional headquarters not only positions us for further growth, but also enables us to take our Asia Pacific operations to the next level and better serve the increasing needs of enterprises, service providers and government department organizations across the region,” adds Sharat Sinha, Vice President for Palo Alto Networks in Asia Pacific.

The new regional headquarters of Palo Alto Networks will house the company’s Asia Pacific operations and personnel, including regional expert technicians, systems engineers, product management, sales, human resources, marketing and executive teams.

Underscoring the company’s momentum in the region, Palo Alto Networks was recently featured on MIS Asia’s annual index of the region’s best information technology and services providers in the Global 75 category for industry leadership, product and service innovation, key industry technology and business development and for demonstrating outstanding financial performance.
