FireWall Security Best Practices and Threat Prevention (EDU-214 Replacement)

Základní info

The Palo Alto Networks “FireWall Security Best Practices and Threat Prevention” (EDU-214 replacement) course is an instructor-led training that will help you to:

  • Determine the efficacy of your current security policies
  • Develop workflows for managing your security posture
  • Modify your existing policy set to implement Security Best Practices
  • Monitor network traffic using the interactive web interface and firewall reports
  • Utilize tools such as the BPA tool to understand your environment further

This course enables you to effectively secure your enterprise network by leveraging the full potential of the Next-Generation FireWall. Most firewall infrastructures have been migrated from a legacy firewall. However, such a like-for-like migration does not protect the network as it is missing the correct setup of all the threat prevention techniques offered by the Next-Generation FireWall. Implementing security best practices can be a serious challenge as it is often difficult to identify where to start and what combination of best practices is adequate for the environment. Therefore, the “FireWall Security Best Practices and Threat Prevention” (EDU-214 replacement) course teaches not only security best practices but also the methodologies to apply them with minimal impact effectively. 

Please Note: This course will be delivered in half-day sessions

Target Audience:

  • Security Engineers
  • Security Administrators
  • Security Operations Specialists
  • Security Analysts
  • Support Staff


Level: Intermediate
