The PCNSE certification validates the knowledge and skills required for network security engineers that design, deploy, operate, manage, and troubleshoot Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls. PCNSE certified individuals have demonstrated in-depth knowledge of the Palo Alto Networks product portfolio and can make full use of it in the vast majority of implementations.
This certification has no prerequisites. Recommended training includes the Firewall Essentials: Configuration and Management (EDU-210) course, the Panorama: Managing Firewalls at Scale (EDU-220) course, the Firewall: Troubleshooting (330) course, the PCNSE Study Guide, and six months of hands-on experience with the product in deployment
Palo Alto Networks technology is highly integrated and automated. The Palo Alto Networks product portfolio comprises multiple separate technologies working in unison to prevent successful cyberattacks. The PCNSE validates that engineers can correctly deploy Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls while leveraging the rest of the platform.
