PAN-EDU-214 - Firewall: Optimizing Firewall Threat Prevention (EDU-214)

Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls are architected to safely enable applications and prevent modern

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.
