Let's face it, when it comes to learning about new technology or security-related items, reading books either online or in physical form can be a little on the dry side—like Saltine crackers with no water. Not to mention that it can be so boring that it puts you to sleep. Well, we have good news for you in Beacon.


We are excited to introduce our new digital online platform, so you can learn all about Palo Alto Networks technology in a fun and simple way, without putting you to sleep. With Beacon, you have an interactive and engaging one-stop website that gathers all Palo Alto Network resources into one location to help with learning, onboarding, and implementation of Palo Alto Networks technologies.


Beacon gives you the following:

  • Self-service roadmaps for education and training
  • Technical resources, tools & assessments and best practices to get you up and running
  • Learning tracks that can be customized based on role, expertise and needs

As long as you are a Palo Alto Networks customer with a valid Customer Support Portal (CSP) profile and an SSO login, you will have full access to Beacon.


So, how does Beacon work?

One of the big hassles with learning is researching what you need to know, finding those resources, and knowing the order to take them in. Now with Beacon, those endless searches are history. Beacon has all the information you need to be successful in a single view. There are even additional assets to help you apply this knowledge for optimal results.


Beacon collects all the technical assets available to you today via resources like the Knowledgebase, LIVEcommunity, TechDocs, and more. These resources continue to be accessible as standalone options, but with Beacon, they will be in a combined format via outcome-based learning paths. You will also find tips and tricks from our product gurus, delivering a series of ready-to-use educational roadmaps. Beacon allows you to select your desired outcome or feature, then presents custom, step-by-step educational guides to help you achieve your goals.


Check out Beacon today to start learning.
