Spanish, French security firms combine for reach and expertise

Spanish Panda Security and French Stormshield have announced a European strategic alliance with the aim of providing a more comprehensive and unified visibility of threats. Both companies have partners who supply small business and enterprises, as well as operations across Europe. Nato-certified Stormshield will share its expertise in security for industrial networks and operational technology.

Juan Santamaria, General Manager for Panda Security commented, “The next-generation firewalls and UTM features offered by Stormshield Network Security effectively secure our customers’ networks, delivering the best price/performance ratio on the market. This solution offers a much-needed, comprehensive response for traditional, industrial, and cloud infrastructures.”

Matthieu Bonenfant, Marketing Director for Stormshield, says, “Panda Security is uniquely positioned in the market for workstation protection and advanced cybersecurity solutions. With its Adaptive Defense solution, all of our customers – regardless of their size – benefit from next-generation security that is easy to deploy and maintain.
