Deploying Palo Alto Networks in the Public Cloud - A Technical Deep Dive
Defined as a ready-made compute, networking, and storage environment, the public cloud brings ubiquitous access to users, rapid scalability to address workload “bursts,” and infrastructure consistency. Learn how ensuring your applications and data are kept safe from attackers is your responsibility. We'll then cover how tools like application enablement policies can protect you against known and unknown threats.

12:20 p.m. - 1:20 p.m. Lunch with Partners

1:20 p.m. - 2:05 p.m. Breakout Sessions

Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform with VMware NSX - Part 1
How do you accelerate the deployment of business-critical applications without compromising security? How do you define dynamic security policies to protect against advanced threats while keeping pace with data center virtualization? VMware and Palo Alto Networks have partnered to deliver a solution that combines fast provisioning of network and security services with next-generation security in the data center. In this lab, learn how to deploy the Palo Alto Networks virtualized next-generation firewall VM-1000-HV with VMware NSX to secure VM to VM communications.

Traps - Everything You Need to Know, and Then Some
Join our Palo Alto Networks expert speaker for an in-depth review of Traps advanced endpoint protection, including new features, how Traps works with your existing Palo Alto Networks deployment, and how you can prepare to implement a better endpoint protection strategy. This will also be your first opportunity to utilize the new self-assessment for Traps readiness!

2:05 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. Break

2:15 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. Breakout Sessions

Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform with VMware NSX - Part 2
How do you accelerate the deployment of business-critical applications without compromising security? How do you define dynamic security policies to protect against advanced threats while keeping pace with data center virtualization? VMware and Palo Alto Networks have partnered to deliver a solution that combines fast provisioning of network and security services with next-generation security in the data center.

Continuous Security for the Hybrid Enterprise
Networks are expanding in all directions, transforming with varying segmentation, and changing their taxonomy with transient and fresh computing models: cloud, virtual, IoT, containers, etc. Security must be continuous because it must travel with the enterprise, forward in time and evolve with the enterprise as the attack surface (space) changes. Additionally, organizations will continue to utilize traditional infrastructure as well as adopt the latest resources that serves their business goals. Continuous security must meet both the heritage network technologies and security challenges embedded in the latest computing models. The enterprise is hybrid. Security must be the same. Join this session to learn how you can prepare for the challenges that enterprises will face in this new and shifting landscape.

3:00 p.m. - 3:05 p.m. Closing Comments
