DLP support for FTP Protocol

L0 Member

We have a requirement to apply DLP inspection to FTP traffic - both native FTP & FTP over HTTP. Does the Palo Alto Enterprise DLP supports FTP protocol or FTP APP-ID?


I have referred to below Palo Alto link and there is a line -" File operationsYou can upload files using HTTP and HTTPS (no FTP or SMTP)"


FTP is a common file upload protocol and it should be supported for DLP, but per above line it seems Palo Alto doesn't support it.

Hi @manojwkumar ,


FTP is not supported by the enterprise DLP functionality.  The following page lists all the supported applications for DLP:



Please reach out to your local SE and submit a feature request if you would like other applications to be included.
