Security company giving away $70,000 prize at ITEX

Speedsters could win a $70,000 prize in virtual Bathurst race.

Network security company Palo Alto Networks (PAN), and its local partner Katana Technologies, are giving delegates to the ITEX Business Technology Show tomorrow the chance to race and win a $70,000 prize. Attendees will be able to use one of two race car simulators on the exhibition floor to race at Bathurst, also known as Mount Panorama, Panorama being the name of PAN’s central management console.

The top 10 qualifiers from the day will race again to set their pole position.

All of the top 10 will receive free internet application visibility reports from Katana Technologies and PAN. The top three will receive additional datacentre reports, and the first place winner will be awarded a free Palo Alto Networks PA-2050 firewall appliance for a year, worth over $70,000.

Steve Rielly, director of Katana Technologies is overseeing the competition.

“Palo Alto Networks has been in New Zealand just over two years now, and the products are, quite literally, amazing people. This is a great opportunity to spread the word about Palo Alto, while also having a lot of fun and blowing off some steam,” says Rielly.

Katana Technologies was PAN’s first partner in New Zealand.

ITEX is a business technology convention being held at the Sky City Convention Centre on Wednesday 23 Novemeber. The event is in its second year, and will include a keynote presentation from Brent Ayrey, vice president of product innovation for Netflix.
