Expedition is the fourth evolution of the Palo Alto Networks Migration Tool. The main purpose of this tool was help reducing the time and efforts to migrate a configuration from one of the supported vendors to Palo Alto Networks.
By using the Migration Tool, everyone can convert a configuration from Checkpoint or Cisco or any other vendor to a PAN-OS and give you more time to improve the results. Migration Tool 3 added some functionalities to allow our customers to enforce security policies based on App-ID and User-ID as well.
With Expedition, we have gone one step further, not only because we want to continue helping to facilitate the transition of a security policy from others vendors to PAN-OS, but we want to ensure the outcome is the best as possible. This is why we added a Machine Learning module that can help you generate new security policies based on real log traffic and the introduction of the Best Practices Assessment Tool to check the configuration complies with the Best Practices recommended by our security experts.
With all these huge improvements we expect the next time you use Expedition the journey to the excellence will be easier.
