Palo Alto Networks recently announced the availability of PAN-OS 9.0, the next major release of their appliance operating system. With any major update there are always bug fixes and improvements, as well as those big new features that everyone wants to get their hands on and try out. For PAN-OS 9.0, the major additions are a new security subscription (called DNS Security), large improvements to URL filtering, a new Policy Optimizer tool, and new high-end firewalls (both physical and virtual).
Unfortunately for me, my organization is going through a tech refresh cycle, so I won’t be able to test out the new features in production for a little while. In the meantime, I want to highlight the two features that I’m most interested in testing.
