Palo Alto Networks Threat Prevention Review

A stable product that can alert you quickly to firewall threats

What is most valuable?

Its Wi-Fi feature actually attracted me a lot. Also, sandboxing can be done.

How has it helped my organization?

Basically, on the server side, it alerts me to threats. We are working to begin reporting on this. It affects me a lot. 

What needs improvement?

Some bugs, which will be rectified by Palo Alto in the next update.

For how long have I used the solution?

Almost one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues. I do not have issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

For my organization, there is more than enough scalability for me. It is good for me. Exactly what I want.

How are customer service and technical support?

Their support is very good. For some features, which I don't know. I used to address these with the technical guys. They support me very well on this. 

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

I used to use ASA, which is now owned by Cisco. I feel Palo Alto is more advanced and has better features than ASA. 

How was the initial setup?

It is not very complex, actually. Firewalls can handle it. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yeah, I checked out other products, like Fortigate and Firepower. When we compared Palo Alto and FortiGate, the word from the community, which I came to know, was FortiGate was not stable. Though Palo Alto is slower than Fortigate. When we consider the long-term brands, Palo Alto is much more stable than Fortigate. 

What other advice do I have?

It is one of the best services out there.
