Several admins making changes at the same time can result in half-completed adjustments getting committed to an active device. This happens more than you might expect, but there is a solution!

Did you know you can block traffic based upon countries or regions? Also, did you know there's a way to trick devices into believing that you are from another region or country?

Moving rules in the rulebase has never been easier

You've created a new rule but it ended up at the end of your rulebase, you haven't had coffee yet and there's someone standing at your desk because this is mission critical and urgent. How can the rule be moved into its designated spot quickly so you can go get a coffee?

Ransomware Alert! Bad Rabbit

Ransomware is showing up more frequently. Something we never want to have to deal with. If you want to make sure you are protected when using Palo Alto Network devices, then click to steer clear of the Bad Rabbit.




Unauthorized Coin Mining in the Browser

by ‎10-24-2017 06:21 AM - edited ‎11-15-2017 12:25 AM (3,541 Views)

The popularity of CryptoCurrency is on the rise. Mining is more difficult, requiring data centers of dedicated servers to turn a profit. A new mining technique uses the combined computing power of thousands of endpoints that mine through a script run in the browser -- definite potential for abuse.
