Panorama is a centralized management system that provides global visibility and control over multiple Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls through an easy-to-use web-based interface. Panorama enables administrators to view aggregate or device-specific application, user, and content data and manage multiple Palo Alto Networks firewalls—all from a central location.
Large enterprises commonly have many firewalls deployed throughout their organization and more often than not, the process of managing and controlling them is cumbersome due to management complexities and inconsistencies between the individual devices and centralized management interfaces. The result is an increase in administrative efforts and associated costs.
Panorama provides centralized management and visibility of Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls. From a central location, administrators can gain insight into applications, users, and content traversing the firewalls. The knowledge of what is on the network, in conjunction with safe application enablement policies, maximizes protection and control while minimizing administrative effort. Administrators can centrally perform analysis, reporting, and forensics with the aggregated data over time, or on data stored on the local firewall.
Panorama shares the exact same web-based look and feels like the individual hardware and virtual form-factor firewalls, minimizing any learning curve or delay in executing the task at hand. Palo Alto Networks adheres to a management philosophy that emphasizes consistency, providing a significant advantage over competitive offerings.
Panorama provides centralized policy and device management over a network of Palo Alto Networks™ next-generation firewalls.
