Does Palo Alto IOT include known FQDN domains or Ip addresses for the detected IOT devices?

L6 Presenter

When Palo Alto detects for example the SONOFF devices connect to a known cloud so that the user can manage them as seen in https://sonoff.tech/ewelink/ . In this case when the cloud IoT security detects the sonoff devices will it also load the known list of the FQDN/IP addresses for the SONOFF eWink cloud, so that the IoT admin to know that this is good traffic?

That is a good feedback. We kind of show that under the device profiles section with the intel we gather from the crowdsourced telemetry. Here is a sample where you can see the common/trusted applications used along with the unique applications which are unique to your environment. This ML based behavior verdict helps NetSec in policy creation.

Very good question. Whenever SONOFF devices communicates with the external destinations (FQDN/IP) related to SONOFF eWINK cloud, IoT security shows those device connections part of network usage chart. It helps the admins to visualize and see the destinations and the applications and further helps in creating the least privilege access policies. Sample one for a building automation device for your reference.

Nice! Still maybe for known good ip addresses/fqdn domains there could be detection in the IoT Security portal mentioning that this destination is recommended to be allowed and not blocked as to help admins not block something by mistake 🙂 As this is new product I see this as a possible feature as I thought it will be cool to have it.
