Stable, straightforward to set up, and guards against sophisticated attacks


What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and this is one of the firewall solutions that we implement for our customers. We present this product to customers and also handle the onsite installation.

Our clients use it to secure their network infrastructure.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is WildFire, which blocks sophisticated attacks and distinguishes it from other traditional firewall functions.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see better third-party orchestration so that it is easier for the team to work with different products. 

Improvements should be made in the Cortex module.

For how long have I used the solution?

I worked with this next-generation firewall for about four months as I rotated between departments.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have had no complaints about stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability has not been a problem. Our customers for this firewall are large companies in industries such as banking.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not been in contact with technical support.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is quite straightforward compared to other brands of firewalls. The deployment takes about one month.

What about the implementation team?

Our in-house team handles the deployment and maintenance for our customers.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is considering this product is that it is a useful firewall and high-ranking compared to others.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
