Use APIs and Dynamic Address Groups help you automate policy workflows that adapt to changes, such as additions, moves or deletions of servers. You can deploy Panorama as a virtual or physical appliance, or both, and use it only as a manager or Log Collector, or as both. When required, you can use Panorama Interconnect to scale your single pane of glass to tens of thousands of firewalls.
