The Palo Alto Networks Firewall 9.1: Optimizing Firewall Threat Prevention (EDU-214) course is three days of instructor-led training that emphasizes the PAN-OS® threat prevention capabilities. After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe the cyber-attack lifecycle and recognize common forms of attack
  • Describe PAN-OS® threat prevention capabilities
  • Use firewall logs and reports to make better configuration decisions
  • Configure the firewall to detect, block, and record threats


Participants must complete the Firewall 9.1 Essentials: Configuration and Management course or have equivalent experience. Students must have a basic familiarity with routing, switching, and IP addressing.


Successful completion of this three-day, instructor-led course should enhance the student’s understanding of how to better configure, manage, and monitor PAN-OS® threat protection features. The student will get hands-on experience configuring, managing, and monitoring threat protection features in a lab environment.
