LIVEcommunity - June RewindLIVEcommunity - June Rewind


Summer has officially arrived! This month was filled with sunny days (depending on where you live) and exciting announcements, events, and more on the LIVEcommunity. Catch up on everything we were up to during the month of June!


PAN Approved and Expert-Verified Solutions:


We are excited to announce that community members can now view solutions that have been approved by Palo Alto Networks experts (employees) and LIVEcommunity Cyber Elite experts. 


This will help provide credibility, trust, and increase search relevancy across the LIVEcommunity. Our Cyber Elite Expert Program recognizes experts in our community from around the globe, who have demonstrated excellence in participation and contributions on LIVEcommunity! They are closely engaged with the community, share technical insights, knowledge, and assist fellow community members to elevate their security posture. Our Cyber Elite Experts are now able to designate solutions as “verified,” allowing for users and customers to find known, verified answers faster than ever.


Keep an eye out for these new icons in the LIVEcommunity discussion areas!

Happening next week—our interactive event all about GlobalProtect! Learn how Palo Alto Networks creates a secure and seamless end-user experience for GlobalProtect deployments.

Ask Me Anything (AMA) - LIVEcommunity AMA Roundtable

A huge thank you to our community members for showing up to our LIVEcommunity AMA Roundtable in June! The LIVEcommunity team fielded dozens of questions about the best ways to harness product trainings and certifications, navigate technology pages, find out about upcoming events, and more. 

You can still check out the LIVEcommunity Q&A even though the event ended. Have a question you didn’t get a chance to ask? Don't forget you can comment on our blogs or post a discussion!


New Pages on LIVEcommunity



Our monthly rewind wouldn’t be complete without us announcing new pages on LIVEcommunity. We are happy to introduce two NEW technology pages: Cloud Identity Engine and SaaS Security.


  • The Cloud Identity Engine is a new way to collect attributes from on-premise Active Directory (AD) or cloud-based Azure AD and stores them in a secure, cloud-based infrastructure. This allows Palo Alto Networks' cloud-based applications and services to access the directory information.
  • SaaS Security is a bit of a name change. Formerly known as Prisma SaaS, SaaS Security is the first integrated CASB that automatically keeps pace with the SaaS explosion—giving you full visibility and control of new applications. It provides enterprise data protection and compliance across all SaaS applications and prevents cloud threats in real time. The solution is simple to deploy and offers the lowest TCO compared to legacy products.

These two new areas help showcase these new technologies and include everything from dedicated discussion areas, videos, articles, blogs and resources that can help you in your journey.

For more info, check out this blog where @jdelio walks you through the new pages. Or visit the pages directly to see what these new pages look like for yourself:

New Hardwares


What would any new software be without new hardware to take advantage of it? 

In case you missed it, there were 2 new hardware series that were released, the new PA-5450 Series and PA-400 Series. 


The PA-5450 is designed for hyperscale data centers and takes the place of the PA-5260. 

The PA-400 is designed for everything from Home offices to branch offices and midsized businesses. Both of these ML-Powered Next-Generation Firewalls can help ensure zero-trust network security for you and your organization. 

@jdelio covers all the details in his blog on the New Hardware Platform Releases.


Speakeasy Series

Last month, Palo Alto Networks launched a new video series: “Security Speakeasy: Behind the Scenes of Network Security.” The LIVEcommunity is spotlighting the series via a weekly column that highlights each new video at the beginning of each week. Check out the latest:


This month, we not only added new leaderboards, but are highlighting LIVEcommunity members who are providing significant contributions in our vibrant community!
