Palo Alto Networks – Management

Panorama

 

Centralised Visibility & Management

Panorama provides centralised management of multiple Palo Alto Networks security platforms, enabling administrative access to view applications, who is using them, any associated threats and respond by deploying global, single device, or combined policies. With a user interface that is the same as the individual device, any learning curve when moving from one to another is virtually eliminated. Object-level sharing and global rules help to streamline administrative tasks and minimise repetitive data entry errors. Logs can be consolidated and filtered to gain an aggregate view of network activity while reports can be generated for an individual or multiple appliances.

 

Fine-grained Control Over Administrative Access

For those environments where different staff members require varied levels of access to the management interface, role-based administration administrative access allows any of the device features to be fully enabled, read-only, or disabled (hidden from view). Supported in both the individual device UI and Panorama, role-based administration allows specific individuals to be given appropriate access to the tasks that are pertinent to their job. For example:

 

  • Operations staff can have access to the device and networking configuration.
  • Security administrators are given control over security policy definition, the log viewer and reporting.
  • Key individuals are given full CLI access while for others, the CLI may be disabled.

 

All administrative activities are logged, showing the time of occurrence, the administrator, the management interface used (web UI, CLI, Panorama), the command or action taken along with the result.
