NGFW deployment

I have a question about what is a use case for deploying PA firewall NGFW in the public cloud?

 

I cannot find this answer but I think it is cost savings through one-time purchase of PA hardware and subscription.  I cannot find it anywhere on the training site for 8.0

Re: NGFW deployment

are you using the forum to pass your ACE ? :p

 

it's extending the corp datacenter in the cloud :p but, there's prep material:

Hello,

As @reaper mentioned its a way to procted something you have in the cloud, i.e. web site, file storage, something else, and/or extend your current data center to a cloud instance.

 

Hope that helps.

 

Cheers!

No I only could not find these answers.  As you know I could try the test until I am good with passing the test but I would like to know the answer since I am taking the FREE course but this question I was not able to find it anywhere watching and reading the training material.  I knew the ansser but I was not sure though.

 

I apprecaite your prompt reply.

Yes it did.  I knew the answer I just needed to make sure I was correct.  I am so pleased to see how many people wanted to help me.  Also I will check when I am allowed to logon to the firewall.  According to our corporate policy I am not allowed to log on to the firewall until I pass the test which now I am done and be able to monitor the firewall.  All I needed is to be able to go to ACC and monitor users activities and see who is abusing the bandwdith.

Re: NGFW deployment

Thank you too.  Now my company is going to give me access to only monitor ACC network traffic to see how from our contract is using the bandwidth the most and who is abusing the internet.  My contract is in Afghanistan and we have three location each have 1 PA-220 firewall.  Corporate IT have all admin rights but will not allow me to log to the firewall until I pass the ACE.  That is why I wanted to make sure I understand everything not just pass the test.  Areas that interest me the most User-ID and monitoring and reporting.

 

Have a great day.
