30. Notification of Emergency Purchase of Upgrade to Palo Alto Firewall Equipment from Layer 3 (Event No. 6546)
Strategic Priority

Notification of emergency procurement of upgrade to Palo Alto firewall equipment from Layer 3 in the amount of $42,000.00.  These services were used by the Department of Information Technology to upgrade existing internal Palo Alto firewall equipment to provide enhanced URL filtering and threat protection.  This solution augments existing security measures already implemented on the network. 

This vendor was selected due to its immediate availability, its ability to provide the necessary software and equipment, and the fact that it holds the current contract for managed network services, procurement, and support for Palo Alto equipment and solutions.
