“Palo Alto Networks is a disruptive player in the Asia Pacific enterprise security market, being acknowledged as a trailblazer by analyst houses and industry experts and owing much of its momentum to its unique and innovative next-generation security platform,” Duca adds.

“I look forward to helping further strengthen Palo Alto Networks’ position as a leader in the region by engaging directly with customers and industry organisations about today’s cybersecurity challenges, threat intelligence and related topics.”
