Palo Alto Networks NG Firewalls Review

Advanced technology, reliable, and good customer service

What is our primary use case?

In manufacture, we use this solution as a firewall and an internal gateway. Additionally, we use it for traffic control which keeps strategic traffic separate from production traffic.

What is most valuable?

The technology's very good. We have had a lot of good experience with this solution. We have done a lot of implementation for our clients and we have not had a lot of problems with this solution.

What needs improvement?

For an upcoming release, they could improve on the way to build security rules per user. Palo Alto has this functionality but in implementation, we had some problem. This functionality should be better in our opinion.

In my experience, the stability is very good.

We have more than 700 people using the solution in my company.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We have used FortiGate in the past and we prefer this one.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was complex.

What about the implementation team?

Depending on the project, specific environment, and performance the deployment could take some time.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

With the licensing we pay for it annually, the price could be cheaper.

What other advice do I have?

If someone looking for stability and the leader in next-generation firewall technology, I would choose this solution.

I would recommend this solution to others.

I rate Palo Alto Networks NG Firewalls a ten out of ten.
