Comments/Special Instructions
Palo Alto experience is required, Juniper Netscreen is the secondary experience needed. Other firewall experience is considered but if the candidate does not have the core Palo Alto skills do not submit. If the resume has generic working technologies such as server, workstation, and firewall, they are not going to be strong candidates. We need a candidate with focal knowledge of Palo Alto and Juniper Netscreen that will need minimal guidance to configure and administer Palo Alto and Juniper Firewalls.
