New IoT Security Feature
IoT Security Policy Rule Recommendation Enhancements
and IoT Security configuration workflows make it easier to scale and manage policy rule recommendations. The names of recommended policy rules are now automatically generated. IoT Security automatically pushes activated policy rule sets to Panorama and next-generation firewalls. Panorama lets you import multiple rules at a time into multiple device groups, and firewalls let you import multiple rules at a time into your policy rulebase.
Improved DHCP Traffic Visibility for IoT Security
By extending DHCP traffic visibility further into your network, you can now discover and monitor even more devices than ever. IoT Security employs multiple methods to detect and monitor network activity and correlate it to individual devices. A particularly useful method is the examination of DHCP traffic, which allows IoT Security to associate dynamically assigned IP addresses with device MAC addresses and then add these devices to its inventory and track their network behavior. When it’s difficult to route DHCP traffic in certain areas of the network to or through a firewall, there can be gaps in the coverage that IoT Security provides. To improve visibility into DHCP traffic that otherwise wouldn't reach the firewall, you can configure DHCP servers to send the firewall their server logs as syslog messages. The firewall then forwards the logs through the logging service to IoT Security.
