regarding Content Apps & Threats version

L3 Networker

Good day everyone, 


I look to see what everyone is doing about updates for Content Apps & Threats version on the palo altos. 

Are you doing the auto-update or are you waiting to install it later to make sure no issues happen?


If you are wanting to install it, what is are the security concerns that you came up with ?

What are the productions concerns on waiting to install updates?

We are installing automaticly every morning, but we have a 48 hour delay.

I know someone of our local companies that install after a 12-24 delay automaticly on external facing firewalls, and 48 hours on internal firewalls. 


We did daily with no delay, but after the 729 update, we added in a delay, I think within 24 hours, any issues should come to light, my managment did not want to even take that risk since we are a hospital, and it can really cause some issues for us. 


Hey Kaje, can you explain the more 48 delay hour option. I did not know about that 




Under the 'Device' tab under 'Dynamic Updates' you can set a schedule on when you want the units to download and install Antivirus, Application and Threats, and Wildfire dynamic updates. Within the schedule setup there is a 'threshold' value that you can enter to delay the update until x number of hours has been reached.
