Mobile Infrastructure Security Features

Learn more about all the new mobile infrastructure security features in PAN-OS 10.2.
New Mobile Infrastructure Security Feature
New Deployment Option for GTP Security in 3G/4G Networks
The new deployment option for GTP security provides subscriber-level and equipment-level visibility and security policy control for combined 3G and 4G/LTE networks and supports GTP stateful inspection and IMSI/IMEI correlation in network topologies with a combo node of combined serving gateway (SGW) and packet data network gateway (PGW). To ensure continuous traffic security for users during handovers between 3G and 4G/LTE in these network topologies, this feature now supports the Gn [mobility management entity (MME)-serving GPRS support node (SGSN)] interface in addition to the existing GTP security options.
Mobile Network Security Support on New Mid-Range Hardware Platforms
As more enterprises adopt private 5G networks and multi-access edge computing (MEC), this transition provides new opportunities for attacks. To secure these new environments, you can now use the industry's only 5G-native security to deploy a Zero Trust-based architecture. Palo Alto Networks now supports mobile network security features such as 5G Subscriber ID Security, 5G Equipment ID Security, 5G MEC Security, and 4G/ LTE Security features in a new range of next-generation firewalls: the PA-3440, PA-3430, PA-5430, PA-5420 and PA-5410 (in addition to the PA-5200 series, the PA-5450, and the PA-7000 series).
