- To do a lot of intrusion detection.
- Threat prevention.
- As an application firewall, to be able to securely deliver apps to the public.
It gives us the ease that we are secure. We have set up the proper things that help make our data safe. This is the biggest benefit.
It offers a single pane of glass for all the different types of installations.
The easy of use is pretty good.
I would like a way to do everything programmatically, or be able to copy the configs from different prices at different levels.
The stability is excellent. We have about 50 to 60 employees on it per day. Then, we have about 100 edge connected devices coming through it as well.
It is definitely scalable. We have about 100 users with about 200 to 300 instances on the cloud that we protect.
The technical support is really good. It is usually one phone call to get everything done if we are having an issue.
We chose to purchase Palo Alto through the AWS Marketplace because we needed an easy to use firewall and a way to protect our public applications and services.
The integration and configuration on our AWS environment was pretty simple. We did not have to ask any questions about anything on it, so it was good.
We haven't had any security issues since deploying it.
Purchasing on the AWS Marketplace was simple, effective, and easy.
The price is not bad. They have a yearly renewal fee, and the pricing is exactly where we expect it to be.
We also evaluated Fortinet, but Palo Alto is sort of the new up and coming product. There were a lot of good recommendations from other security experts.
In addition, Palo Alto is easier to configure when you are building policies on applications.
Talk to their technical services to make sure you are getting the right size solution for what you want to do.
The product is easy use. I don't have to think twice when I am using it. I know it is doing its job. Customer support has been great.
We are using both the AWS and on-premise versions. Both versions are about the same. The interface is nice and easy to configure. I like that it seems like it is one platform to manage.
