This guide provides information for configuring the Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls for CEF-formatted Syslog event collection.


Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls provide network security by enabling enterprises to see and control applications, users, and content—not just ports, IP addresses, and packets—using three unique identification technologies: App-ID, User-ID, and Content-ID. These technologies enable enterprises to create business-relevant security policies that safely enable adoption of new applications, instead of the traditional “all-or-nothing” approach offered by traditional port-blocking firewalls used in many security infrastructures. With CEF integration Palo Alto Networks firewalls can generate Traffic, Threat, System, Config, and HIP Match logs in CEF format. Micro Focus has tested these CEF logs to ensure accuracy and format compliance, thus, enabling ArcSight customers to seamlessly utilize the rich data generated by PAN-OS gateways.
