Before you can enable and configure inline cloud analysis, you must obtain and install a Threat Prevention or Advanced Threat Prevention (to access the cloud-based inline cloud analysis features) in addition to any platform licenses from where it is operated. Licenses are activated from the Palo Alto Networks Customer Support Portal and must be active before you can enable any of the threat prevention features. Additionally, Threat Prevention (similar to other Palo Alto Networks security services) is administered through security profiles, which in turn is dependent on the configuration of network enforcement policies as defined through security policy rules. Before enabling Threat Prevention, it is recommended that you familiarize yourself core components of the security platform in which the security subscriptions are enabled. Refer to your product documentation for more information.
To enable and configure your Threat Prevention subscription to function optimally within your network security deployment, refer to the tasks below. While it may not be necessary to implement all of the processes shown here, Palo Alto Networks recommends reviewing all of the tasks to familiarize yourself with the available options for a successful deployment. It is additionally recommended that you follow the best practices provided by Palo Alto Networks for the optimum usability and security.
