Can you set the FW to email you when a large file is being transfered?

Hello,

Can you set the Palo Alto FW to send you a notification when a large file is being transferred?

Thank you.

Hi sammynguyen,

Unfortunately not, it is likely you will need a SIEM to do this live. I believe the best you can do is get the firewall to email you a daily custom report and have the report on file transfers or bytes received/sent.

Hi Sammy,

A SIEM would be a separate appliance, it is a security information and event manager device/software.
