Palo Alto Networks Panorama Review

Easy to use and the threat analysis functionality works well

What is our primary use case?

This product is part of our overall security solution.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the Threat Intelligence.

It is easy to use.

What needs improvement?

I would like to have better analytics.

The network traffic analysis (NTA) is something that you can add on to get more insight from the traffic passing through the firewall, and it should be included.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been working with Panorama for at least five to six years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Palo Alto Panorama is a stable product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We did not have any challenges with respect to scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

Our team has managed properly so we have not often needed to contact technical support. I would say that they are okay, as we have not had any problems with them.

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

We are currently using several different firewalls. There is Check Point, Fortinet, Juniper, and Palo Alto. Check Point was the first one that we used.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward and it took a couple of weeks to deploy.

What about the implementation team?

Our in-house team handled the deployment and is responsible for maintenance.

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

Palo Alto is expensive and there are many cheaper firewalls, but they do not work as well.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is looking at this solution is that it is easy and straightforward to use, although more difficult than some to deploy. It is expensive but if you can afford it, then it's worth it.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
