Palo Alto Networks one of the leaders in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for next generation firewall released their new version of PAN-OS 7.0 trail.

Currently PAN-OS is available to Palo Alto customers who possess a valid support contract.

Some of the key new advancements include:

  • A new Automated Correlation Engine that identifies and prevents compromised hosts in an organization’s network by correlating patterns to pinpoint malicious activity.
  • WildFire threat intelligence enhancements that enable automated analysis of files against multiple versions of applications to identify malware specifically targeting legacy versions; the enhancements also classify malware by threat level, so teams can better prioritize their threat response for quick preventative action when needed.
  • A new high-capacity Network Processing Card for the PA-7050 that provides prevention at scale for data center environments with higher 10G port density and new 40G ports.
  • Advanced policy management capabilities within Panorama that make it even easier to create security policies and device configurations that can be easily and appropriately applied to many next-generation firewall instances, physical or virtual, reducing the chances for human error and gaps in the policy or configuration.

Looking forward to see the new PAN-OS and I hope they will incorporate their CNSE certification with new trail of PAN-OS.
