Palo Alto Networks Opens New APAC HQ Based in Singapore


Palo Alto Networks, the next-generation security company, has opened its new Asia-Pacific headquarters in Singapore.

Located in the heart of the central business district at Guoco Tower, the new office spans a floor space of 35,000 sq. ft. – more than double its previous space at Millenia Tower – and was officially opened by Dr. Yaacob Ibrahim, Minister for Communications & Information and the Minister-in-charge of Cyber Security.

The new office will enable Palo Alto Networks to expand services and support for customers within, and beyond, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. The office will be the base for many cybersecurity personnel in the region, including systems engineers, Unit 42 security analysts and threat intelligence specialists; and it will provide regional support capability for customers of Palo Alto Networks, expanding the company’s worldwide network of support centers.

Unveiled two years ago to provide opportunities for users to learn about cybercrime-fighting technologies, the Palo Alto Networks cybersecurity solutions lab has expanded to support a broader range of Palo Alto Networks technologies, including our next-generation firewalls, Aperture™ security offering for software as a service (SaaS), and WildFire™ cloud-based threat analysis service.

The Palo Alto Networks commitment to APAC is also underscored by its drive to promote cybersecurity education in this region. In January of this year, Palo Alto Networks released Navigating the Digital Age: The Definitive Cybersecurity Guide for Directors and Officers – Singapore, providing a collection of actionable insights and advice from key cybersecurity stakeholders in the country.

Outside of Palo Alto Networks APAC headquarters in Singapore, the company has offices in Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and the Philippines.

“Palo Alto Networks has a growing customer base in Asia-Pacific. With the acceleration in the adoption of digital technologies, such as cloud and mobile payments, there is increasing demand for unique and effective ways of preventing cybersecurity attacks. Enterprises, government and service provider organizations are raising their efforts in cybersecurity creating constant demand and ongoing growth of new customers. Our new headquarters allows us to strengthen our services and footprint in the region, and positions the company for sustained growth,” explained, Simon Green, senior vice president, Asia-Pacific, Palo Alto Networks.
