Threat Protection is being used on a multitude of levels- first all Internet traffic has active threat policies for protection from malicious sites and malware. Other locations utilize threat as a sanity check and second source for other IDS/IPS systems. We are continually tuning and working with Palo Alto to better their threat protection capabilities.
  • The threat engine has constant updates for important threats.
  • Wildfire helps supplement the Threat engine to help protect against 0 day threats.
  • The way the threat engine can be added at different levels to different zones and policies helps to ensure business essential traffic can have policies that are tuned to ensure traffic will flow.
  • Visibility into signatures and how they function/what triggers them would be very beneficial.
  • Lacking customizability compared to other tools.
  • Inability to write custom signatures easily and for traffic with small (less than 8 bit) signatures.
I think threat prevention on a certain level could be used in all Palo Alto deployments (even if just alerting without blocking).

Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection Scorecard Summary

What is Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection?

Threats do not discriminate between application delivery vectors, requiring an approach that has full visibility into all application traffic, including SSL encrypted content, with full user context. Threat Prevention leverages the visibility of our next-generation firewall to inspect all traffic, automatically preventing known threats, regardless of port, protocol or SSL encryption.
