Palo Alto Networks Panorama Review

Straightforward to install, with good logging and reporting, and nice support


What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and one of the Palo Alto products that we implement for our clients is Panorama. This product is a management solution for cloud firewalls.

It is a central management and logging system.

What is most valuable?

When a customer has many locations and they would like to push policies to all of the firewalls from one central location, Panorama is the product that enables customers to do this. They can configure templates and push them out to all locations. This makes it easy to manage.

All of the reports and events from different locations can be managed centrally.

What needs improvement?

Aside from pricing, I don't have any issues with Panorama.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been dealing with Panorama for more than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The product is stable and I haven't faced many issues with it.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Panorama is a scalable solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is nice.

How was the initial setup?

With respect to deployment, they have both the virtualized product as well as the offline version. The initial configuration might take two to three hours, with an additional hour for configuration. I would budget four hours in total.

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

The price of Panorama is expensive.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
