Course Overview

Palo Alto Networks® Traps™ Advanced Endpoint Protection prevents sophisticated vulnerability exploits and unknown malware-driven attacks. Traps accomplishes this through a highly scalable, lightweight agent that uses an innovative new approach for defeating attacks without requiring any prior knowledge of the threat itself.

2 days
  • 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.

    Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

    • Learn how to 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
    • Examine prevention dumps with windbg
  • This class is comprised of the following modules focusing on equipping the student to deploy Traps in large-scale or complex configurations.

    • Module 0: Course Introduction
