Whitelist Vendor IP range from Paloalto IPS

Hi All, I am looking for more effective way to whitelist a vendor on IPS without whitelisting at the FW as well.


I am looking for traffic from vendore ip range to be completely exempted from Vulnerability / antivirus / Anti-spyware without creating any firewall rule and security profile.


Is it possible ?

Not without other potential complications, but a Policy is the best approach. Create a policy with the vendor IP's as the source and then do not perform any scanning on it. 




Its simple and effectve. It's how I allow these actions.

We have a scheduled security scan coming up and I need to perform this step as well. However I do not want to introduce openings to the scanner that are not open to the Internet. If I were to use this method, I believe I would have to mirror each policy with the source IP of scanner and have same destination rules / ports and not do scanning. Does that sound right?
