With knowledge comes power. Identifying applications within your virtualized environment, regardless of port, gives you unmatched visibility into your KVM-based deployment. Armed with this knowledge, you can make more-informed security policy decisions.


Using the application as the basis for your VM-Series security policy allows you to leverage the deny-all-else premise that a firewall is based on for both gateway and workload-to-workload protection. You can safely enable allowed applications and deny all others.


To further protect your KVM deployment, you can deploy application-specific threat prevention policies that will block both known and unknown malware.

The Palo Alto Networks® VM-Series on KVM brings next-generation firewall and threat protection capabilities to OpenStack® and KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) based virtual infrastructure from cyberthreats. VM-Series on KVM can be deployed and managed across a range of Linux operating systems including Red Hat® (RHEL), CentOS® and Ubuntu®.
