Palo Alto Networks VM-Series Review

It prevents data loss and business disruption

What is our primary use case?

We use it to protect applications and data on AWS.

How has it helped my organization?

Embedding it into my application development lifecycle prevents data loss and business disruption, allowing the adoption to operate at the speed of my AWS Cloud.

What is most valuable?

It prevents data loss and business disruption.

What needs improvement?

It can definitely improve on the performance.

I would like more scalability included on the next release.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It has a good performance which helps you with the stability of your virtual environment.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It has to be more scalable for the deployment of VMs on the cloud.

What about the implementation team?

You have to be an expert administrator of a virtual environment to know how to integrate it with your AWS environment.

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

Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace is a secure way to purchase this solution. Our organization chose to procure this solution via the AWS Marketplace because we have clients who were interested in the solution. Also, for out proof of concept, we decided to purchase it.

The pricing and licensing of this product on AWS should be from $1.28/hr or $4,500.00/yr. Then, it would be a good price for the performance that it delivers.

What other advice do I have?

It solves several challenges protecting your AWS workloads with good security features, delivering superior visibility, control, and threat prevention at the application level when compared to other cloud-oriented security solutions.

I have not tried integrating Palo Alto with other products.
