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.

Here’s where protocol becomes your best friend; a clear progression of steps to take in the face of an immediate threat. Better yet, Fuel volunteer Paul Carter asks, can that protocol be standardized across organizations? He believes so and, in response, developed the DDIVE Model –which stands for Detect, Design, Implement, Validate, Establish. A security-focused response to incidents that will ensure viable options are considered, implemented and documented, DDIVE is designed to be adaptable and repeatable.
