Have you ever wondered *HOW* the Palo Alto Networks NGFW processes traffic flowing through the dataplane? Have you ever needed to troubleshoot a routing or NAT problem? Have you wondered why certain traffic isn't making it through the firewall and there isn't a log indicating why?
This episode will help explain what *exactly* the firewall is doing with packets as they flow through session setup and inspection!
The BPA is to the Palo Alto Networks firewall what Tony Stark is to his Iron Man suit! It's one thing to have a powerful, super-charged piece of equipment, it's an entirely different thing to utilize that equipment in the most effective ways possible with the help of dashboards, insights, and guidance. That's the BPA! The BPA puts the "hero" into "supehero"!
In this episode, we meet up again with Sam and Andrew who have been working hard (along with others on their team) adding new features and capabilities to the BPA. We learn about five new features, AND we also are introduced to the new BPA API! Watch to the end to learn how you can join the beta and take advantage of the new API!
