What Firewall Change Management software is working with a PAN ?

L3 Networker


Is there anyone that can tell me which Firewall Change Management ( Skybox, Tufin, Algosec,.... ) is REALLY working with a PAN ?

Most of them claim they can do it, until you test it... nothing works...

Some of them announce PAN support for next year.

I would like to get in touch with someone who has really done this kind of integration and who is using this in a live production environment.

Anyone at all ?

To be honest, as technical guy we don't need this.

But this is a requirement in most large organisations from the security/compliance department....

In my opinion these vendors can simply not keep up with recent evolution of a nextgen firewall.

Anyway, if somebody has this working, I'll be happy to hear about it.

Have you looked at Firemon?  They are a PAN technology partner.

FireMon for Palo Alto devices. (datasheet)



Tufin is also our partner. As I know they can support it now and will have more roadmap to make it more robust. Recommend you to request a demo and roadmap update with them.



According to my experience, Tufin works at TCP/UDP layer and does not understand applications; e.g. I had a rule allowing only dns application, without filtering TCP/UDP port number, and Tufin SecureTrack reported it as dangerous because such rule would have allowed telnet, MS services, etc.

I asked Tufin Support and sounds like application firewalling is in their road-map; I would say they are mainly focused on Checkpoint and Cisco.




We are Skybox partner.

From my own experience, Skybox integrates correctly BUT not fully support Palo Alto.

Fully supported partners are: Cisco, Checkpoint, Fortinet and Juniper.

Working features


- collecting rulebase,

- detecting overlap/hidden rule in the rule base,

- collecting routing table (except routes from tunnel interface, see below),

- support rules with application (so even if port 23 is open but in the rulebase but Telnet application is blocked, skybox understand that Telnet is blocked by the rulebase),

- understand NAT and authentication rule,

Missing Features


- support of tunnel interface,

- compliancy check (NIST or PCI) of the rulebase,

- rulebase usage (object statistics, etc) REM : should be available soon

I had the opportunity to test Firemon, it's very far away from what Skybox can do....



Wondering if anyone has an update to this thread regarding Palo Alto <> SkyBox integration. My client is trying to implement SkyBox, however they are frustrated with not being able to see values on the firewalls that are comitted by Panorama template. Is SkyBox "Template Aware" and can corelate those values to the Panorama managed devices?


I have zero experience with SkyBox, and of course expected to be the expert.

I have been using Firemon . I believe you must evaluate Firemon once .
