Overview

Use CSP Network Security page to manage the following types of products:

  • Next Generation Firewalls (NGFW)
  • Panorama
  • Prisma Access
  • Prisma SD-WAN
  • Okyo
 
Network Security page will replace these legacy pages later this year, (a) Devices, (b) IONs, (c) Okyo, (d) Line Cards/Optics/FRUs, (e) Spares.

Why should you use Network Security page? Network Security page has faster and easier to use versions of the same features provided by the legacy pages. If you learned how to manage assets in the pages to be replaced, you will have plenty of time to learn how to use Network Security page.
 
To manage other types of products, such as Prisma Cloud and Cortex products, continue to use legacy pages. Later this year, these legacy pages will be replaced by a new Cloud Security page.



Go To Network Security Page

Login to Customer Support Portal (CSP).  Then, click Assets > Network Security.
