During the first community call on June 17th, Hunter Ely, Palo Alto Networks Higher Ed Strategist, and myself will present on the overall NET+ Palo Alto Networks program, dive into the first bundle on remote access, and you’ll have time to ask questions, too! Please contact us if you would like to add a question or topic to the agenda.

The remaining open community calls will share additional details of the program. Each call will have a demo of the bundle.

The resources discussed on the call will be published to the NET+ Palo Alto Networks Wiki where we’ll start collecting community resources and sharing best practices.

Starting in 2022, the NET+ Palo Alto Networks program will focus on campus subscribers, so getting involved in 2021 will allow you open access to these resources for the year!
