Our custom App-ID lets Palo Alto Networks customers--


  1. Block viewing on-demand videos and live streaming of games from nbcolympics website:

    • Create a security rule to 'deny' games18.
  2. Enforce QoS policing (permit the streaming and on-demand videos but rate limit the video streams):

  3.  Gain visibility into the global games (live and on-demand) traffic in your traffic mix:

    • When you import the custom-defined applications to your firewall and commit, make sure the traffic is 'allowed' by the security policies.
