Policy rules for App-IDs using new content delivered
Safely enable a broad set of applications with common
attributes using a single policy rule (for example, give your users
broad access to web-based applications or safely enable all enterprise
VoIP applications). Palo Alto Networks takes on the task of researching
applications with common attributes and delivers this through tags
in dynamic content updates. This:
Minimizes errors and saves time.
Helps you to create policies that automatically update to handle
newly released applications.
Simplifies the transition toward an App-ID based rule set using Policy Optimizer.
Your firewall can then use your tag-based application filter
to dynamically enforce new and updated App-IDs without requiring
you to review or update policy rules whenever new applications are
added. If you choose to exclude applications from a specific tag,
new content updates honor those exclusions. You can also use your
own tags to define applications types based on your policy requirements.
