With all of the advancements that Palo Alto Networks has made as a company, I think that licensing had remained as one of the pain points for users consuming Software Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFW). If you haven't already seen the news, and to make your lives easier, we were recently happy to announce the release of Software NGFW Credits. With this program, you are now able to sit back and manage your Software NGFW's through the Customer Support Portal (CSP), as well as some features on the firewalls themselves.
To me, the best part of this new solution is the ability to scale. The ability to distribute credits, enable and disable firewalls very easily and quickly is so very convenient.
Changing from a license-based model to a credit-based model is going to make so many things easier.
Videos always help to visualize and explain things quickly when you want to understand how something works, and these perfectly show how to manage NGFW credits.
We have broken down them into 6 chapters, and a Bonus 7th chapter is planned in the next week, so stay tuned.
