In this paper we will explore the adoption of IPv6, outline security considerations and concerns, and cover the support of IPv6 on the Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewall. Regardless of where you appear on the spectrum for IPv6 adoption, making the switch to the next-generation platform provides tremendous benefit by enabling organizations to implement security services, control errant and unmonitored usage of IPv6, provide a path to consistently secure traffic, and ease migration.
