Upgrade to latest 7.0.x or 7.1.x?

L2 Linker



we are planning to upgrade our 3020 A/P Cluster to latest PANOS (7.0.x or 7.1.x). Currently we are runing 6.1.13.


We want to do more SSL Decryption (Inbound & Forward Proxy). What are you thinking is the best and stable release for 3020 A/P Clusters and SSL Decryption?


Is there a official site where we can check the palo alto recommended releases?


Thank you.

No there is no officially recommended version, but you can check these 3 links:


7.1 better for decryption:

Security Advisories:




Will give you a good understanding same as release notes.




If you're main importance is decrypting the traffic go with 7.1 since that supports the most ciphers. Either release at this point has proven to be stable. 

We have had good luck with PAN-OS 7.1 as long as you are running 7.1.4-h1 or later.  I would recommend going to 7.1.6 as we have been running it pretty much issue free in our environment.

wow - thank you 🙂

Running 7.1.5 for a while now, no issues.
