Cybersecurity professionals have their hands full securing remote workforces in today’s “new normal” working environments. Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is a model that provides the right path for many organizations to modernize their enterprise for security, speed, growth and cost reductions.
As you implement your SASE model to secure your enterprise, you can maximize your return on investment if the technology is fully deployed and managed effectively by your team. One way to ensure your team has the knowledge and ability to implement the Palo Alto Networks SASE technology is to encourage them to take advantage of our micro-credentials specifically focused on SASE.
Micro-credentials allow individuals to adapt to changes in technology quickly and accurately. With their shortened length and specialized topics, micro-credentials are designed to offer efficient learning paths to make it easier for you to gain your SASE micro-credentials. Individuals may use chunk learning as a methodical approach to earn these technical credentials. We offer opportunities for you or your team members and colleagues to get micro-credentials to demonstrate your skill sets in emerging technologies such as SASE and other important security technologies.
Deploying a SASE architecture can be complicated, and it takes expertise to ensure features and functionality are properly enabled or deployed. Palo Alto Networks Education Services offers free of cost, detailed and robust SASE enablement paths and micro-credentials to help you maximize your SASE security ROI. These new micro-credentials will not only give you the confidence to implement SASE security, but they will help grow your career with the right security credentials.
The new micro-credentials for SASE security implementation include:
The Palo Alto Networks Micro-Credential for Remote user Administrator (PMRuA) is a micro-credential focused on the implementation of SASE model mobile users and autonomous digital experience management (ADEM). This micro-credential is designed to benefit security administrators tasked with securing remote users. Individuals will learn how to implement and confidently manage Prisma Access Cloud Management with an emphasis on the new capabilities of Prisma Access 2.0. A certified PMRuA is able to demonstrate their abilities in implementing protections for mobile user use cases.
The Palo Alto Networks Micro-Credential Remote network Administrator (PMRnA) is a post-sales micro-credential focused on the implementation of SASE Remote Networks and SD-WAN. This micro-credential will benefit security administrators whose job is to secure remote office networks. Individuals will learn capabilities of Prisma Access and Prisma SD-WAN to ensure their remote locations are properly secured. A certified PMRnA is able to demonstrate their abilities in implementing remote network use cases, including Prisma SD-WAN and Prisma Access integrations.
Gaining and achieving these micro-credentials helps demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of SASE, Prisma Access and Prisma Access SD-WAN to help your company secure remote offices and workers. Visit our certification page to start your SASE enablement path.
