Palo Alto Firewall 10.1 Essentials: Configuration and Management (EDU-210) 

Firewalls are critical components of any network. They enforce network security while monitoring incoming and outgoing traffic and introduce a sieve to ensure only permitted data packets enter the network.  

With the advancements in technology, conventional firewalls tend to be less useful when facing modern virtual threats. As a result, global cybersecurity leader Palo Alto has ushered in the age of next generation firewalls. These firewalls build on foundational capabilities by adding authentication decisions based on the context of the user, the content and the application. This allows cyber security departments to have a 360-degree view of all going on within the network, making it easy to prevent malware and threat intelligence technologies.
