NEW!! Discussion of the Week (DotW)

DotW: Blocking Snapchat

Even though our member was blocking the application Snapchat, it seemed like some traffic was still getting through. More precisely, pictures were still passing through the firewall, whereas text messages were being blocked correctly. See how the power of the community rules the discussion from problem through solution. Thanks for the question and a whole lot of help from @rmiller1, @BPry. @bmorris1 and our very own @kiwi, Live Community Solutions Engineer Kim Wens.

From inside the article, leave feedback, thumbs up, kudos, me too! and ask for the moon @kiwi


NEW!! Tips & Tricks

Complete Action List in Profiles

Beginning with PAN-OS 7.0, we've added more actions you can take with threat signatures. Previously, only allow, alert, and block actions were permitted, but we now offer more scalable actions that permit more control and granularity, and  are also logged in threat logs. We even illustrate mapping actions for you if you're downgrading or upgrading around PAN-OS 7.0. You're going to like this!

Let Kim know how you're planning to use this new functionality this side of the moon @kiwi
