Automate / orchestrate 100s of firewall upgrades

L0 Member

Hi All,


Is there a way to automate and/or orchestrate upgrades of PA firewalls? We have 100s that need to be upgraded from version 8.x to 10.x and the current workflow to upgrade is too tedious (i.e lots of manual checks and clicking around panorama, maintenance release patching before getting to 10.x, downloading versions, plugin updates, etc). Is there a solution (native or third-party) that can automate some or all of these steps?


Cisco has a solution called Cisco Defence Orchestrator that can bulk upgrade their firewalls, is there something like this for PA?


Or what about a third-party firewall management platform such as Tufin, Firemon or AlgoSec - can these automate PA firewall upgrades and how well does it work?

Like what you see?
