  • Palo Alto Firewall.
  • Any PAN-OS.
  • Security Policies.



Security Policies allow users to control firewall operations by enforcing rules and automatically taking action. Security Policies on the Palo Alto Networks firewalls determine whether to block or allow a new network session based on traffic attributes, such as the source and destination security zones, the source and destination addresses and the application and services.
