Do you have a compelling story, use-case or in-depth technical product knowledge to share? The call for papers for Ignite ‘22 is now open!
Palo Alto Networks is looking for speakers and presenters with highly technical backgrounds who can share their experience and expertise around groundbreaking new threat research, innovative best practices, and next-gen cybersecurity technologies at its Ignite '22 conference.
The Palo Alto Networks Education Services website renovation is complete! While our courses, credentials and training always stay fresh and relevant, our site felt a little shabby. It was time for a modern interface, enhanced search filters and ease of use —transforming how you find the education you seek from digital learning to micro-credentials to instructor-led training.
Speaking of: Here are the new free digital courses added to Beacon in June 2022.
It’s only been a couple months since Cloud NGFW for AWS was released, but Palo Alto Networks has already added some exciting new capabilities, including region expansion, a free trial, and a new Terraform provider.
We also released a Cloud NGFW Versus VM-Series comparison chart. Learn how the self-managed virtual appliance and managed cloud service stack-up to each other in capabilities such as security controls, AWS-native services support, and additional security services.

URL filtering is much more than just mapping a category to a website; it’s a useful tool that can be used in conjunction with other features within your Palo Alto Networks’ next-generation firewall. Using the Application Command Center (ACC), you can check browsing trends and drill down to get some interesting reports from the URL Filtering widget.
Traditional URL filtering provides risk categorization ratings of domains, but a new feature from Palo Alto Networks, Advanced URL Filtering, is a real-time cloud-based inline analysis system that allows the ability to detect evasion, targeted attacks, and new and unknown malicious web-based attacks. Together, URL Filtering and Advanced URL Filtering provide a complete solution to withstand the web-based threat landscape.
