Changing IP addresses and extending the enterprise using VPNs has become a staple in today’s network environments. Leveraging Palo Alto’s Next Generation Firewall, you can do just that using NAT, and configuring remote access and site to site VPNs.
At the core of network-security engineering is a thorough knowledge of NAT translations and VPN connections. In this course, Configuring NAT and VPN's Using Palo Alto Firewalls, you'll learn how to shape traffic using Palo Alto’s Next Generation Firewall. First, you’ll learn how to configure various types of NAT. Next, you’ll explore how to deploy site-to-site VPNs using both pre-shared keys and digital certificates. Finally, you’ll discover how to set up remote access VPNs using GlobalProtect. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have a foundational knowledge of configuring NAT and VPNs on a Palo Alto firewall that will help you as you move forward to engineer enterprise network security.

Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Craig Stansbury. Welcome to my course, Configuring Nat and VPNs using Palo Alto Firewalls. I am a senior network engineer, as well as a networking consultant with a decade of IT experience. NAT translations and VPN connections are extremely common in today's business environments and Palo Alto firewalls continue to be a Gartner magic quadrant leader. Let's combine them to allow you to manipulate traffic using Palo Alto security features. In this course, we are going to configure various types of NAT and then extend the enterprise using both site to site and remote access VPNs. Some of the major topics that we will cover include NAT basics and configurations, VPN encryption fundamentals, configuring site to site VPNs, and deploying GlobalProtect to enable remote access VPNs. And by the end of the course, you'll know how to leverage the Palo Alto firewall to translate IP addresses using NAT and how to secure remote traffic using VPNs. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with PAN-OS, as well as general IT terminology. From here, continue your learning by diving into Palo Alto firewalls with courses on Panorama, high availability, threat prevention, and SSL decryption. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn NAT and VPNs with the Configuring NAT and VPNs using Palo Alto Firewall Scores right here, at Pluralsight.
