Summary: The Palo Alto agreement covers the yearly subscription for Firewall support, updates, maintenance and URL internet filtering. High availability and Wildfire subscriptions add an extra layer of threat protection and failure support in case one of the internet lines fails.

The cost associated with the renewal is $52,666. This is a decrease from the 2017-2018 subscription as we removed a service that was not providing enough benefit for the cost.
Funding: The total cost of $52,666.00 is allocated in the 2019-2020 technology budget.
Recommendation: It is recommended that the Board approve the firewall subscription renewal as presented.
