If you have ever second guessed yourself before removing an App-ID from a rule or if you have caused an outage by removing a policy rule prematurely then this episode is for you! Jason & Mitch explore the new PAN-OS 9.0 Policy Optimizer which might seem, on the surface, like a simple tool for telling you which rules see more or less traffic but it is much more than that!   The Policy Optimizer will help you save time and frustration in your efforts to achieve greater network security! If you have over provisioned rules without App-IDs (a.k.a just service/port definitions) or rules with too many App-IDs allowed, the Policy Optimizer can help! If you have unused rules that are no longer needed for currently sanctioned traffic, the Policy Optimizer can help! If you have firewalls running PAN-OS 8.1 and older but you have Panorama and are willing to upgrade Panorama to 9.0, You CAN use the Policy Optimizer!   We hope you find this demo-heavy episode of Learning Happy Hour entertaining and helpful!     Episode Feedback: learninghappyhour@paloaltonetworks.com
