Palo Alto Networks announced that The Lines Company Ltd, which owns and operates an electricity distribution network on the North Island of New Zealand, moved to the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform as part of a comprehensive revitalisation of its IT infrastructure. The Lines Company's previous environment relied on firewalls that were complex to manage and failed to protect the utility from today's cyberthreats. The decision to use Palo Alto Networks slashed network bandwidth consumption by 40 percent, improved IT staff productivity, and helped the company to avoid $50,000 in software upgrades.
