User and group information must be directly integrated into the technology platforms that secure modern organizations. Knowing who is using the applications on your network, and who may have transmitted a threat or is transferring files, strengthens security policies and reduces incident response times. User-ID, a standard feature on Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls, enables you to leverage user information stored in a wide range of repositories.
