9:00 - 9:30:

Intro Session – Multi-Cloud Architectural Overview

The data center is dead. Long live the data center…just now in the cloud. The center of gravity has moved to the cloud. Enterprise IT investment has shifted to the cloud. Growth is in the cloud. Your opportunity is in the cloud. In this introduction we will set the stage for how enterprise network architects and engineers are making the transformation to cloud-networking. We will introduce cloud-native networking and why it is has become the foundational architecture for hundreds of single and multi-cloud enterprises who must leverage the simplicity and automation clouds deliver but need the visibility and control they are used to having on-premises.

9:30 - 10:00:

Comprehensive Security for Multi-Cloud EnterprisesPresented by Palo Alto Networks

Security for a cloud-network environment can be a challenge for traditional security operations teams. Existing corporate and regulatory requirements must remain in place, but the center of gravity has moved to the cloud. Traditional approaches, shoved onto the cloud, increase complexity, cost and ultimately expose your enterprise to unnecessary risk. Palo Alto Networks Prisma takes a different approach, securing the cloud from the inside out by providing the most comprehensive cloud security in the industry. With Prisma, organizations can protect their users, applications and data, regardless of where they’re located. This session will provide an overview of the latest updates from Palo Alto Networks.

10:00 - 11:00:

Building and Securing Networks in the Cloud for Network and Security Engineers

This session is designed to drill into the details of cloud-native networking for multi-cloud enterprise network and security engineers and cloud architects who believe their cloud architecture must enable seamlessly public cloud connectivity. You will learn how a common network control and data plane allows you to overcome many of the hidden limitations that cloud providers hope you won’t discover. We’ll demonstrate how to deploy and leverage intelligent orchestration and control in minutes. And, we will present the solution for maximizing both performance and visibility when deploying Palo Alto Networks VM-series firewalls in the cloud.

11:00 - 11:30: Lunch
11:30 - 12:30:

Reducing Mean Time to Resolution with Advanced Cloud Network Visibility in the Cloud

One of the biggest challenges for network and security teams in the transformation to cloud is lack of visibility and control. Day-two operational visibility and troubleshooting tools you have become used to on-prem, simply are not delivered by cloud service providers. Try and get a NetFlow log or do packet capture in a native deployment of AWS transit gateway. Try to get evidential data to prove that a connectivity issue is on their side, not yours. In this session, we’ll cover the solution to these, and other key capabilities network and security engineers and cloud architects need including, high availability network design, end-to-end and high-performance encryption and where SD-WAN fits in a cloud centric world.

12:30 - 1:30:

Fast & Furious Answers for your Real-World Challenges Whiteboard Session

We want to be sure you get all your questions answered and leave believing this training day was worth every minute of your time. To that end, we have dedicated time to address the questions that you came to this event hoping to get answered. Our session leaders will create an interactive Q&A session or group activity, in line with the day’s topics, to get those question on the table and answered.
