Hands-on 2018

We believe in hands-on disruption. We also believe there’s no substitute for learning by doing, experiencing our technology in action. That’s why this year, we’re offering thousands of seats throughout Ignite ’18 events where you can dig in, roll up your sleeves, and see how our products and services work against today’s most sophisticated threats.

Hands-On Workshops

We designed these two-hour Hands-On Workshops, focused on our Next-Generation Security Platform, to give you an in-depth look at our products, feature deployment and implementation. You’ll need specific prior experience for some workshops, so please refer to the prerequisites for each.

Monday, 8 October – Wednesday, 10 October, 2018

Self-paced Hands-on Lab

For ultimate flexibility, we are offering a limited number of self-paced lab seats, so you can run the lab of your choice at the time you want. Most of our workshops will be available in the Self-Paced Lab Room so you can get the hands-on experience of instructor-led labs at your own pace. Combine the self-paced lab with an Express Lab Demo to get the full workshop experience.

Ultimate Test Drives

These labs will expose you to a number of our advanced capabilities, new threat protection techniques, advanced endpoint protection, network security management and the latest concepts in securing a software-defined data center. We’ll guide you through a series of hands-on exercises to introduce you to an array of products and features in Palo Alto Networks® Next-Generation Security Platform.

Monday, 8 October – Wednesday, 10 October, 2018

Cyber Range

Cyber Range sessions provide the latest interactive training, using actual threats, to keep your teams razor-sharp. The savvier your staff becomes, the better they’ll be able to develop and execute the most comprehensive security strategies for today and tomorrow.

Equal parts cross-disciplinary training tool, video game and highly immersive team-building experience, Cyber Range is an exciting and fun way to effectively train you and your front-line people.
