Palo Alto Networks VM-Series Review

AWS has improved our agility to apply firewall rules because everything is based in the cloud

What is our primary use case?

We use it for firewall purposes.

How has it helped my organization?

We use it mostly for the firewall and its ability to work in AWS. That is why we like it.

What is most valuable?

AWS has improved our agility to apply firewall rules. It has reduced the amount of time that it takes to apply firewall rules because everything is based in the cloud. It helps us to bring agility to the project teams when applying them.

What needs improvement?

We still need to understand what are the best practices which we need to implement. 

We also don't know how it will scale once we start putting more load on it.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We like its stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We are happy with the scalability. 

We just started migrating to the cloud. Thus, we are slowly adding more volume to it. Maybe next year, we should know how it is scaling in the cloud.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have in-house experts and a good relationship with the Palo Alto technical support team.

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

We were using a lot of Cisco firewalls before. We switched because we wanted what works best in the cloud.

How was the initial setup?

We have been happy with the configuration and implementation on the AWS environment.

What was our ROI?

It takes the bottleneck away from the information security teams and increases their agility on projects. 

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

We found purchasing process the product on the AWS Marketplace to be very good. We used the AWS Marketplace because we were set to move to AWS. We rely on Amazon and their partners to process our research.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend to try it out.
