Palo Alto Networks NG Firewalls Review

Reliable, sophisticated, fast, and easy to setup with good support

What is our primary use case?

We are using this solution for IDS, IPS, and VPN services.

Also, we are using it for gateway purposes. The development team accesses the data center, and the file intrusion prevention policy.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the content ID, IPs, and the URL filtering service to enable protection. 

The structure is much faster and more sophisticated than Cisco.

Their cloud support is smart.

What needs improvement?

This solution is very stable, but Cisco devices are stable at the hardware level. Palo Alto hardware is not equal to the level of the Cisco Device.

The hardware is weak.

In the next release, I would like to see faster support and the integrated system a 5G network, a next-generation firewall, and endpoint security.

I would like a collaboration system and reporting ASA policy needs to be smarter.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's definitely a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

For LAN purposes, we have 700 plus users.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is good enough.

We are using Cisco support and they are very good. 

The Palo Alto support is faster and their support is also good.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward.

It takes a maximum of two days to deploy.

Two or three guys are enough to deploy and maintain it.

What about the implementation team?

We used vendor support for the deployment.

What other advice do I have?

We plan to continue the usage of this solution in the future and I would recommend it to others. 

The product is very good, I would rate Palo Alto Networks NG Firewalls a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
