Palo Alto Networks WildFire Review

Provides credential-based attack prevention.

How has it helped my organization?

  • Much more visibility during an attack lifecycle; found a lot of infected hosts and vulnerabilities.

What is most valuable?

  • App-ID
  • Easy migration
  • Credential-based attack prevention
  • PBF easily configured
  • Whole team can use the firewall and understand it

What needs improvement?

The GUI is better in 8.0, but I still feel it lacks the fast response most of us desire. Logs are much quicker.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not encountered any stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not encountered any scalability issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Technical Support:

Technical support is excellent. Their support is top-tier for sure.

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

We previously used legacy Cisco ASA. We switched because it was buggy and had no visibility; it was not easy for the rest of my team to use.

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup was straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

A vendor team implemented it. They were amazing.

It IS a bit expensive, but I think you get what you pay for. Value is there.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing this product, we also evaluated Check Point, Cisco, and Fortinet.
