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 equips the student to deploy Traps in large-scale or complex configurations and optimize its configuration.
Students will 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; build multi-ESM deployments; design and implement customized policies; test Traps with exploits created using Metasploit; and examine prevention dumps with windbg.
