SMTP recipients per minute

Is there a limit on the number of smtp recipients per minute that can be processed by a PA? I've seen other firewalls with limits, depending on the size, so that the impact of worms can be negated.

Hello RFalconer,

I don't think PAN is having such restrictions to process the MAX number of SMTP request. It does have limits on available features, i.e. Max no of Policy, NAT rule,Zone, Virtual-system etc.

Product Selection

Thanks

Hi RFalconer,

By default there is no feature where firewall determines E-mails as potential warm by size or count.

Do you have any specific requirement for threat detection.

There is no current requirement. We are in the process of migrating from Netscreen to Palo Alto. The Netscreen had a default of 100 distinct recipients per minute, which was too low for our organization. I just wanted to make sure that I don't need to plan and document to expand on the number of recipients that the Palo Alto can handle.

I couldn't find a setting for it but I wanted to make sure.

Thanks.

Hi RFalconer,

PANw provides anti-virus, anti-vulnerability and anti-spyware profile. You can also configure DNS sinkholing.

Above mentioned things takes care of most of the security issues. Let me know if you need additional information.

For sure we dont have per minute recipient limit.

Thats a feature I want to, compromised hosts sending out hundred thousands of emails is a problem, but put up an mailscanner between the webhosts and the smtp-server solves the problem. But would be a "nice to have" in PAN
