Do you need any info from me for the shirt?



Beginning are always clumsy, but one of the first things I was impressed - community and knowledge base articles. I cannot stress enough how many times articles around here have helped me to get around some issues or simply get to know some feature.

"What I wish I had known" that a complex administration appliance (Panorama) will help me in one or two clicks to apply configuration changes to almost 100 firewalls in a few seconds and not go firewall by firewall that used to take me a few hours, now it makes our company happier and more secure, quick example would be deploying an emergency content updated. WAY FASTER, thanks to Palo Alto Panorama :). 


P.S: Almost all of my questions or steps by steps procedures (Like 80% of the time) are here in the community.
