At the largest gathering of next-generation firewall users, attendees were thrilled to talk with industry visionaries about the future of network security. They were able to learn from successful global organizations in 30+ technical sessions. Sessions dug into everything from how people successfully deployed Palo Alto Networks as the primary firewall to how PAN-OS was used to protect an IPv6 network. Visibility, scalability and safe business enablement were just a few buzzwords being thrown out from speakers. Plus, with the new Palo Alto Networks offerings the crowd had something extra to be excited about. All presentations will be available shortly here.
