    Goals / Remit

    Our company is a cybersecurity company. We seek to preserve our digital way of life by preventing successful cyber attacks.

    As the next-generation security company, Palo Alto Networks is leading a new era in cybersecurity by preventing advanced threats from achieving their objectives for tens of thousands of organizations around the world. Palo Alto Networks believes cybersecurity is fundamentally a math problem that currently favors malicious actors. As the cost of computing declines, adversaries can conduct increasingly automated, successful attacks at minimal cost. The Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform provides automated protection to prevent these cyberattacks. Effective automated prevention is essential to drive up the cost for a malicious actor to the point where the likelihood of a successful attack dramatically declines.

    17 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: https://commissioners.ec.europa.eu/index_en All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
