Description

Discover the course which is all about the fundamentals of Palo Alto Networks. Here, you will be taught all the tools, features, and options of your Palo Alto firewalls which offers protection and will enhance your visibility in your network traffic. This course has been designed for anyone who will understand learning every possible aspect of a technology platform which consumes precious time.

In this course you'll learn the understanding of the core technologies, and the zone-based firewall. There are many discussions like how App-ID gives more control, how Content-ID makes things safe, how to Authenticate users with USER-ID, knowing about the technical requirements, how to gain access to the user interface, how to upgrade the firewall, how to manage certificates and many other things in details. You will study here from the very basics to the mastery of this course.

Moreover, many detailed topics are discussed like:

  • Setting up panorama
  • Device groups
  • Panorama HA
  • The rollback procedure
  • Logging service
  • External Logging
  • Exploring API

These are not only the topics which are discussed but also more topics like threat intelligence with minemeld, debugging process, monitoring with pan(w) achrome and many other topics.

You will just require general basic knowledge of network topics such as access control lists, routing, and NAT but not necessary as this course got you covered. This course is also apt for you to opt as you will get the knowledge from the very beginning until you become a pro., you’ll learn everything which is required to set it up like a professional.

This course is for students who are pursuing engineering or computer science. Network Engineers or Administrators, IT Security Administrators, and Security Engineers are also welcome to take this course.

It is for anyone who manages, designs, or operates a Palo Alto Networks or the Candidates who are studying for the Palo Alto Networks PCNSE certification.

After completing this course, you’ll feel confident enough of your knowledge that you can take full advantage of all of the features of the Palo Alto Networks and most importantly you will get lifetime access to this course as the source of e learning. You will get a robust and strong foundation after taking this course which will help you to get further secure and stable jobs. Here, from the basics to the advanced, every concept is covered in the most practical way so that you will not only pass your exams but also you are ready for the real-world environment. So, you shouldn't waste any more time, so take this course now.
