Blocking Google Drive ?

Not applicable


We are relatively new to Palo Alto appliances, but are wondering if we can block Google Drive already?

We did some searching in the application objects database + on this forum, but we cannot find it for now...

Is google drive available yet for scanning/filtering?

Or how long does it normally take for P.A. for this app to be added to the available applications (groups/categories)?

thanks in advance.

You could setup a rule for just your ip with "app=any" (and log on session end) to see how this is being identified currently by your PA device and afterwards limit it down to whatever application it identifies.

If im not mistaken Google Docs is replaced by Google Drive so I hope that the current Google Docs appid's can be reused for Google Drive (until PAN releases an updated app-db):






Fastest way to get a response regarding this is to request app enhancement from the Apps and Threats Research Center.

From there you can click on Submit an app and provide details there.
