This intermediate Palo Alto PCNSA training prepares learners to take the PCNSA exam, which is the one required exam to earn the Palo Alto Networks Certified Network Security Administrator (PCNSA) certification.
The Palo Alto Networks Certified Network Security Administrator certification isn’t designed just for security professionals — customers, value-add resellers, pre-sale systems engineers, system integrators, and system administrators can get a lot from it too. The PCNSA focuses on installing, maintaining and managing Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls to protect networks — so no matter your role or responsibilities, with our PCNSA training, you’ll understand how to use Palo Alto’s cutting edge tools to protect networks from emerging cyber threats. If you need insight into navigating firewalls on Palo Alto’s security operating system, an extensive background in digital security isn’t a prerequisite for our PCNSA training, and afterwards you’ll be a more capable user of any network secured by Palo Alto.
For anyone who manages security professionals, this PCNSA training can be used for PCNSA exam prep, on-boarding new security professionals, or as part of a team training plan.
