Panorama different Dynamic Update Sections

L1 Bithead

Trying to figure out what Panorama > Dynamic Updates are used for, the Device Deployment updates make sense but not sure what Panorama > Dynamic Updates is actually doing if anything..

 

Panorama > Device Deployment > Dynamic Updates vs Panorama > Dynamic Updates
 
Thanks

Thank you for posting question @Pasquale01 

 

Panorama > Dynamic Updates is used by Panorama itself. For example you need Antivirus package to be installed to be able to push External Dynamic List ("Known malicious IP addresses", "High risk IP addresses",...) in policies. You need up to date Applications and Threats to be able to see all Threats in Log monitoring or Reports.

 

Panorama > Device Deployment > Dynamic Updates is used for package update deployment to Panorama managed Firewalls and Log Collectors. There are several uses cases including scenario when Firewall does not have internet connection and you still want to keep firewall updated with latest packages.

 

Kind Regards
