Like all of you, Palo Alto Networks has been adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts to help ensure the health and well-being of our people, customers and partners. 

This includes how we are approaching in-person events. Over the last few weeks, we’ve moved to an entirely virtual model, including taking our Executive Briefing Program online and holding over 200 events remotely. It’s been great to see the engagement and feedback as we’ve jumped into these sessions together. 

With health and safety remaining our top priority, we have made the decision to pivot all Palo Alto Networks-hosted events to virtual for the remainder of 2020. This includes our:

  • Employee-focused Sales Kickoff from August 24-27
  • Federal Ignite program from October 13-15 
  • Ignite Conference from November 9-12 
  • Local EMEA Ignite Conference from November 16-18 

While we’ll join each other virtually rather than face to face, some things will not change. Our Federal Ignite program, for example, will continue to bring together leading government, cybersecurity and industry professionals, and our Ignite Conferences in November will deliver advanced cybersecurity experiences for our customers and partners.

Taking these events online presents us with new opportunities to involve more customers and partners. We’ve been thrilled to see thousands of you participate in a recent Cloud Native Security virtual summit and our Joint Service Academy Cybersecurity Summit (JSAC) that we host annually to bring together cybersecurity leaders across military, government, academia and industry.

We remain very much in touch with our customers and partners, and look forward to more great discussions at our future webinars and virtual forums. See our events page for the latest information, or reach out to igniteconf@paloaltonetworks.com with any questions.
