We like the dummies series, to break ground into new technologies, for a quick jump start into the theory. Think of it as “Quick Start” instructions that come with a new gadget. They get you up and running but if you want to make the gadget dance you have to RTFM to get the details.
Being very accustomed to designing and configuring Cisco security devices, we thought dummies will be as good a start as any, til we can get our hands on a demo NGF somehow. Hey why not? It’s FREE!
Low and behold one of our customers just emailed us to let us know they had two Palo Alto Networks PAN-5050 NGF’s they wanted to install on their network. Well alright! This should be fun. While we buckle down to explore this technology we thought we would share the link to the free ebook, in case anyone wants to follow along on this new security adventure.
