Evaluation unit- Multiple questions

Not applicable

Greetings,

During my evaluation of a PAN device, I have found I have many questions regarding the capabilities of the device.  I won't list them all in this one post but maybe just several for now.  If it would be better to list these as separate posts, please let me know.

1.  Does the device do any sort of reverse proxying for web servers?  OWA, Sharepoint?

2. Can the Logs be configured to refresh any faster than 10 seconds.  My current firewall is at least one second.  Makes it nice to see when a bit of traffic hits the FW.

3. Can the device to HTTP to HTTPS redirection?  Enable users to type http and automatically be redirected to the actual https web page.

4. Can the traffic logs be "colored" so that allowed rules appear as green, while blocked rules appear as red?  Or any color the admin wants...

5. When creating RULES, searching for Applications can be trying.  I was interested in adding the HTTP protocol to a rule in the PAN but when I typed HTTP(or even “http”) into the Application search field all I got were items like http-audio, http-proxy, http-tunnel, http-video and httport.  I finally found the lowly HTTP protocol buried in a description for the Application called “web-browsing”.  Is there a better way to search for standard protocols for use in a rule?

The device we are evaulating is curentlu using OS version 3.08, I believe.  Would the newest OS address any of the above issues?

Thanks in advance!

- I will have to get back to you on this one.

2. Can the Logs be configured to refresh any faster than 10 seconds.  My current firewall is at least one second.  Makes it nice to see when a bit of traffic hits the FW.

- We only support 10sec, 30sec, 1min, and manual.

3. Can the device to HTTP to HTTPS redirection?  Enable users to type http and automatically be redirected to the actual https web page.

- I will have to get back to you on this one.

4. Can the traffic logs be "colored" so that allowed rules appear as green, while blocked rules appear as red?  Or any color the admin wants...

-This is not supported, but sounds like a good feature request. I would contact your SE so they can add this as a feature request to product marketing.

5. When creating RULES, searching for Applications can be trying.  I was interested in adding the HTTP protocol to a rule in the PAN but when I typed HTTP(or even “http”) into the Application search field all I got were items like http-audio, http-proxy, http-tunnel, http-video and httport.  I finally found the lowly HTTP protocol buried in a description for the Application called “web-browsing”.  Is there a better way to search for standard protocols for use in a rule?

- This one again should also be a feature request.

- The latest release would have the same results.

Thanks!  I look forward to the responses to questions 1 and 3.
