Palo Alto Networks


Palo Alto Network logs are network security logs that come from next-generation firewall technology that enables applications – regardless of port, protocol, evasive tactic, or SSL encryption – and scans content to stop targeted threats and prevent data leakage. They provide insight into the use of applications, helping you maintain complete visibility and control simplifying network security. 

Palo Alto Networks logs provide deep visibility into network traffic information, including: the date and time, source and destination zones, addresses and ports, application name, security rule name applied to the flow, rule action (allow, deny, or drop), ingress and egress interface, number of bytes, and session end reason. They also provide system information, host information profiles, malware analysis, information about configuration changes, security alerts, and much more.
