Palo Alto Networks NG Firewalls Review

A stable next-generation firewall solution

What is our primary use case?

We use Palo Alto Networks NG Firewalls to manage the villains. Basically, to protect the environment. 

What is most valuable?

I like that they are more stable than the previous ones, and they allow a lot of other features.

What needs improvement?

It would be better to have more tools to control Palo Alto Networks NG Firewalls. We don't have too many tools to access Palo Alto. For example, the IT team doesn't have access to it. We can see it physically and see if it's running or not. We need to contact a special team to receive that information. I would also like to see more reporting in the next release.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Palo Alto Networks NG Firewalls for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Palo Alto Networks NG Firewalls is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Palo Alto Networks NG Firewalls is scalable. We have about 250 people using it at our hotel.

How are customer service and technical support?

We use Trustwave, a company that provides the devices. We have an agreement with them, and we're satisfied with the support.

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

We used to use Juniper and Fortinet.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is pretty much straightforward. It takes us about two hours to set up and deploy this solution. It takes a team of two guys to deploy and maintain this solution.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to new users.

On a scale from one to ten, I would give Palo Alto Networks NG Firewalls a nine.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
