Learn about new IoT security capabilities in PAN-OS
New IoT Security Feature
The IoT Security solution works with next-generation firewalls
to dynamically discover and maintain a real-time inventory of the
IoT devices on your network. Through AI and machine-learning algorithms,
the IoT Security solution achieves a high level of accuracy, even
classifying IoT device types encountered for the first time. And
because it’s dynamic, your IoT device inventory is always up to
date. IoT Security also provides the automatic generation of policy
recommendations to control IoT device traffic, as well as the automatic
creation of IoT device attributes for use in firewall policies.
Requires an IoT Security subscription.
The firewall can now collect metadata to
detect and identify devices on your network and obtain recommendations on
how to secure them so you can know what devices are connecting to
your networks and use them as match criteria to create adaptive
device-based policy rules. In environments with an increasing demand
for “bring your own device” (BYOD) support and as more IoT (Internet
of Things) devices connect to networks, detecting and securing these
devices becomes increasingly difficult. By correlating network events
with specific devices and providing actionable insights about them, Device-ID
can quickly identify the source device for network incidents and
help you create a responsive and comprehensive security policy.
