Say Hello to Platinum Support by Palo Alto Networks
At Ignite '19 Europe, Palo Alto Networks introduces the new Platinum Support offering to the world.
Christian Hentschel, SVP of EMEA announced at Ignite Europe the new platinum support offering.Support is something that we all have to deal with on a day-to-day basis. Whether it's support you get from our online resources or from our dedicated support staff, all of us at Palo Alto Networks work very hard to solve customers' daily challenges.
With the new Platinum Support, we are taking our support commitment to the next level. Since cloud security is evolving, the way we offer support to customers must evolve as well. Not only is Platinum Support a higher level of support with preventative thinking and ways to improve your current security stance, it is also a way to show how we truly want our customers to be secure and protected from threats that loom.
Platinum Support Features
The new Platinum Support offering is composed of three key elements:
Enhanced Support Response Time Platinum Support provides our fastest response time with a dedicated team of senior engineers to resolve support issues that includes a 15-minute response time for severity 1 issues.

Along with Platinum Support, we also want to remind you about the Best Practices Assessment (BPA) Tool.
The Best Practice Assessment evaluates configurations, identifies risks and gives recommendations for how you can address potential risks in your network. The assessment compares current configurations to Palo Alto Networks best practices and produces a guide to which best practices are, and are not, being utilized. This guide includes details of best practice recommendations per feature.
For more information on the BPA tool, including a BPA interpretation video library, please see the following:
As if the BPA tool wasn't enough, we have also created "Security Assurance" in case you detect suspicious activity in your network. Security Assurance provides extra help from Palo Alto Networks when you need it the most, including:
Access to Palo Alto Networks security experts and their specialized threat intelligence tools and threat hunting practices.
Advanced log and Indicators of Compromise (IOC) analysis.
Configuration assessment that includes customized product security recommendations.
Next-step recommendations to expedite the transition to your incident response (IR) vendor to help manage and resolve the incident.
To take advantage of Security Assurance, you must subscribe to the Premium Support Contract (on or after November 1, 2019) or to the Platinum Support Contract.

All of these tools, Platinum Support, BPA, and Security Assurance work together to provide you with the best support possible.
We hope that our support stands out from the competition, just like our security products.
