In this intermediate Palo Alto skills training, Keith Barker helps learners understand Next-Generation Firewalls (NGF).
All firewalls control traffic with an Access Control List, but next-gen firewalls have a few more bells and whistles. Next-generation firewalls control traffic based on the application and deep packet inspection, which is great. But the thing Palo Alto brings to the table is a firewall that can dynamically learn about threats across the entire internet. The moment a threat is discovered on the internet, that information is communicated to your firewall.
After completing this Palo Alto skills training you'll know how to use the advanced features on a Palo Alto next-generation firewall. Learn about App-ID, URL filtering, antivirus, SSL decryption, and User-ID.
For anyone who manages security professionals, this Palo Alto training can be used to onboard new security professionals, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Palo Alto reference resource.
