Panorama

Panorama provides centralized administration and security policies management beyond Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls.

Using Application Command Center (ACC) from Panorama provides you with a highly interactive, graphical view of application, URL, threat and data (files and patterns) traversing your Palo Alto Networks firewalls. ACC includes a tabbed view of network activity, threat activity, and blocked activity, and each tab includes pertinent widgets for better visualization of traffic patterns on your network. Custom tabs can be created, which include widgets that enable you to drill down into the information that is most important to the administrator. ACC provides a comprehensive, fully customizable view of not only current, but also historical data. Additional data on URL categories and threats provides a complete and well-rounded picture of network activity. The visibility from ACC allows you to make informed policy decisions and respond quickly to potential security threats.

Panorama empowers you to set policy with a single security rule base, and simplifies the process of importing, duplicating or modifying rules across your network. The combination of centralized and local administrative control over policies and objects allows you to strike a balance between consistent security at the global level and flexibility at the local level.

Panorama utilizes the same set of powerful monitoring and reporting tools available at the local device management level. As you perform log queries and generate reports, Panorama dynamically pulls the most current data directly from firewalls under management or from logs forwarded to Panorama.

Panorama

Organizations can deploy Panorama either with hardware appliances or as virtual appliances.


Centralized monitoring
Using Application Command Center (ACC) from Panorama provides you with a highly interactive, graphical view of application, URL, threat and data (files and patterns) traversing your Palo Alto Networks firewalls. ACC includes a tabbed view of network activity, threat activity, and blocked activity, and each tab includes pertinent widgets for better visualization of traffic patterns on your network.

Global policies management
Panorama provides static rules in an ever-changing network and threat landscape. Manage your network security with a single security rule base for firewall, threat prevention, URL filtering, application awareness, user identification, sandboxing, file blocking, and data filtering.

Visibility, forensic analysis and reporting
For either an individual firewall or across your entire network of firewalls, your team can research applications, users and content traversing your network, perform forensic analysis, and generate fully customized reports.

Management platform deployment flexibility
Panorama is available as either a purpose-built hardware platform or as a virtual appliance, which allows you to choose the form factor that is best meets your requirements. Both the virtual machine and the M-100 appliance provide the same ability to centrally manage our next-generation firewalls across your organization.
