6.1.3 still around, says Insight


Hi everyone,

As you may have noticed, we've recently begun exposing Insight V2 in these forums. Insight gives us a lot of non-confidential data about customers' environments, to help build better knowledge for us all.

Looking at our data for Palo Alto Networks devices we've learned a few interesting things:

  • 6.1.3 is still around. Released in March 2015, it is the software version we found installed on at least one device at the largest number of PANW customers of all versions.
  • Of the 8.x versions, 8.0.5 appears to be the most common. With the new release of 8.1 this week, we'd love to see how these get adopted over time.
  • 28% of Palo Alto Networks and Indeni customers set the content updates to Download Only, instead of Download and Install. This decreases the security value of their PANW investment, but gives greater control on potential device behavior changes.

Interested in anything specific? Let us know in the comments below!


6.1.3 would just scare me. :)

it would be interesting to see a full breakdown of PAN-OS distribution in a bar chart by quantity vs percentage. Maybe we should have some vulnerability alerts to encourage those upgrades :)


Here ya go:
