Palo Alto Networks VM-Series Review

Stable with good support, and the VMs have configurable hardware resources

We are a solution provider and the Palo Alto VM-Series is one of the products that we implement for our customers. Our customers use this virtualized next-generation firewall as part of their security solution.
