Fuel members benefit from local in-person user groups where they can connect with peers, engage with industry focused groups in the online community, and learn from expert users and hands-on experiences at regional Spark events.

Enterprise security provider, Palo Alto Networks, launched today the Palo Alto Networks Fuel User Group (Fuel), which is a global community established to drive knowledge sharing and best practices among security professionals across multiple industries.

Besides regular interactions with technology leaders from Palo Alto Networks, membership in Fuel will provide security professionals with exclusive, timely, and educational opportunities for peer and industry expert engagement. Members also will have access to leadership opportunities and community-developed educational resources to further their knowledge and careers in cybersecurity.

Fuel members will also gain valuable networking opportunities with local Fuel chapters, Spark User Summit events that connect Fuel members and Palo Alto Networks experts by region, and discounted participation at Ignite, the Palo Alto Networks annual user conference.

According to a media statement, membership in the Fuel User Group is tiered based on engagement level and access to premium content and services. Original Fuel members joining in 2015 will be recognised year-after-year for their foundational participation and have access to future benefits.

"Fuel is a thriving community with a mission of fostering collaboration and education among security professionals from all over the world," said Scott Gainey, head of Product Marketing at Palo Alto Networks. "Participation can help members better protect their respective organisations from the latest cyber threats and contribute to the future of cybersecurity where the balance of power has shifted from cyber criminals to security professionals."
