Course Description

Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls are architected to safely enable applications and prevent modern threats. Their approach identifies all network traffic based on applications, users, content and devices, and lets you express your business policies in the form of easy-to-understand security rules.

Flexible deployment options and native integration with their next-generation security platform extend the policy enforcement and cyberthreat prevention to everywhere your users and data are located: in your network, on your endpoints and in the cloud.

Palo Alto Networks recently launched a new certification - the PCNSA or Palo Alto Networks Certified Network Security Administrator - that is meant to be taken after attending the EDU-210 course. For more information on this new certification, you can visit Palo Alto Networks certification page or email us at with any questions.
