Palo Alto Networks WildFire Review

Easy to scale, stable, and updates globally

What is our primary use case?

I use this solution for protecting endpoint devices from malware.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is how it keeps up-to-date with viruses.

It has the ability to block bots that are trying to come into the network, and the Dynamic updates, pushing to the Palo Alto firewall. For example, if information comes into the enterprise and there are some new viruses, it automatically sends it to WildFire to validate. 

If it's new, they flag it, change it, and update all of the different firewalls across the globe, to inform everyone of what is going on.

What needs improvement?

The support is good but they could be faster.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Palo Alto Networks WildFire for approximately six years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a very stable cloud-based solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's the cloud, it scales quickly.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is alright but we have to wait for a while.

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

I am also acquainted with Fortinet.

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

Pricing could be improved.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Palo Alto Networks WildFire a nine out of ten.
