Scott Stevens

With over 20 years of experience in the networking and security industries, Scott Stevens leads the rapidly growing Systems and Consulting Engineering team for Palo Alto Networks.
Possessing a strong customer-centric background, he has been engaged in technology innovation conversations throughout his career. Stevens is seen as a visionary in evolving network architectures, as well as having the ability to navigate the emerging relationship between applications, security, and networks – a conversation that is now transitioning into the larger SDN debate.

Prior to Palo Alto Networks, Stevens spent 14 years at Juniper Networks in various roles predominantly focused on building and leading customer-facing teams. This includes running the Worldwide Advanced Architecture team, the Worldwide SE Team, and the Americas SE teams. Earlier in his career at Redstone Communications, he was the first systems engineer in the organisation and was responsible for initially building and then leading its SE team. While with Juniper, he also built the Solutions Engineering team in order to create solutions that combine Juniper's portfolio with those of its partners. Additionally, Stevens combined all of the training functions within the company into a new, integrated education team, supporting sales/SE, partner, and customer training.

Stevens holds a master's degree in business from Oklahoma City University, and a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He speaks regularly at industry conferences and is viewed as an industry visionary in the area of IP service architectures.
