Palo Alto Networks® Traps™ Advanced Endpoint Protection prevents sophisticated vulnerability exploits and unknown malware-driven attacks. Successful completion of this two-day, instructor-led course should prepare the student to deploy on-premise Traps in large-scale or complex configurations and optimize its configuration.
Students should learn how to design, build, implement, and optimize large-scale Traps deployments: those with multiple servers and/or thousands of endpoints. In hands-on lab exercises, students will distribute Traps endpoint software in an automated way, prepare master images for VDI deployment, create a Traps Linux installation package and install the agent onto a Linux endpoint, build multi-ESM deployments, design and implement customized policies, test Traps with exploits created using Metasploit, and examine prevention dumps with windbg.
Course level: Intermediate
Course format: Combines instructor-facilitated lecture with hands-on labs
Software version: Palo Alto Networks Traps Advanced Endpoint Protection 4.2
Target Audience: Security Engineers, System Administrators, and Technical Support Engineers
Students should have completed “Traps 4.2: Install, Configure, and Manage” or (for Palo Alto Networks employee and partner SEs) “PSE: Endpoint Associate” training. Windows system administration skills and familiarity with enterprise security concepts also are required. An elementary level of Linux shell experience is needed only for the Linux lab activity.
