Specialist Training



The Palo Alto Networks Firewall Configuration and Management (EDU-210) course is an instructor-led training that will help you to:

Configure and manage the essential features of Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation FireWalls

Configure and manage Security and NAT policies

Configure and manage Threat Prevention strategies to block known and unknown threats

Monitor network traffic using the interactive web interface and firewall reports

This training is the most important course as it covers all the fundamentals to understand the Next-Generation FireWall from the ground up.

Even experienced firewall engineers take a lot out of this course as it includes, besides the architecture and management essentials, topics like Application Identification, Content ID (IPS, Anti-Virus/-Spyware, URL Filtering, File Blocking), SSL Decryption and User Identification which are all features usually not supported by legacy firewalls.

In addition to the official content, we also teach security best practices that will enable students to fully leverage the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall’s potential as we not only explain the theory but how to use every feature in real life. Please see the course content for the detailed agenda.



Successful completion of this five-day, instructor-led course should enhance the student’s understanding of how to configure and manage Palo Alto Networks NextGeneration Firewalls. The course includes hands-on experience configuring, managing, and monitoring a firewall in a lab environment.

Target Audience

Security Engineers, Security Administrators, Security Operations Specialists, Security Analysts, and Support Staff


Students must have a basic familiarity with networking concepts including routing, switching, and IP addressing. Students also should be familiar with basic security concepts. Experience with other security technologies (IPS, proxy, and content filtering) is a plus
