Simplified App-ID

App-ID identifies the applications traversing your network—regardless of port, protocol, encryption, or any evasive tactics—so that you can safely enable desired applications and block unwanted applications. Palo Alto Networks releases new App-IDs on a monthly basis that your security policy can begin to enforce without any additional configuration. While this dynamic enforcement of applications enables the firewall to control application traffic with ever-increasing precision, it can also impact the availability of mission-critical applications on which your organization relies.
Now, you no longer need to weigh availability for mission-critical applications against equipping the firewall with the latest application knowledge; with the following options, you can do both, and it’ll be easier for you to move to and maintain an application-based security policy:
