File Types blocking and logging

L3 Networker

Hi Gents,

I have installed Palo Alto 5050 between the users and my Server Farm.

the Issue here is that I created a policy that allows access to the file server based on specific applications or ports, but now I want to prevent users

from saving mp3, and video files on my server. so I created a files profile that blocks these file types, and assigned that profile to the policy that allows access to the server.

now, what if the user changed the mp3 file extension and tried to upload that file to the server or tried to upload the mp3 file in a zip format?

will the Palo Alto inspect that the file content is mp3 or not?, also is there any way to get logs that shows me what happened to the file itself as per configured in the file profile not the policy?@
