Palo Alto Networks NG Firewalls Review

Stable, very reliable, and easy to use

What is our primary use case?

I am currently testing Palo Alto and preparing for an exam.

How has it helped my organization?

The Global Protect Feature has allowed our organization to support our remote workforce. 

What is most valuable?

I have found it to be reliable and very easy to use. I haven't really encountered many problems with it because its documentation is clear and readily available on their website.

What needs improvement?

They need to provide documentation for CLI, as most of the commands, we get from Community Forums.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been doing research on Palo Alto for the past nine months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Highly scalable as the HA deployment allows you to pair up to eight devices at once. 

How are customer service and technical support?

I haven't had a chance to contact them.

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

Palo Alto is my first solution.

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup is easy and subsequent changes have been easy to implement as well. 

What about the implementation team?

In-house expertise. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

What other advice do I have?

I would say go for it because it seems to be stable and very reliable. I've spoken to some specialists who vouch for Palo Alto. They say they've been using it in their environment, and it hasn't let them down so far.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
