This course was formerly named Palo Alto Networks Foundations of Next Generation Firewalls (EDU-150). ** Our foundation classes are just introductory trainings, NOT a full technical training. Your network has expanded beyond your organization\'s boundaries. Cloud locations and remote users (often using personal devices) have \"distributed\" the surface you need to both enable and protect. At the same time, the motivations of attackers and their sophistication have continued to evolve. Palo Alto Networks' next-generation firewalls are all based on a consistent Single-Pass Architecture, enabling security capability that is unique in the industry. This architecture is implemented in a portfolio of both physical and virtual appliances, designed to cover a range of performance and use case
