Project details

Using skills picked up over the past 10 years implementing and administering Palo Alto firewalls, as well as advanced toolsets, I will run through and verify the configuration on your Palo Alto Networks firewall (or firewalls!) and ensure it is as close to Palo Altos best practice as possible.

I can then work with you on any remediation steps, as well as bringing in any new features online which may not presently be in use.
