Palo Alto Networks WildFire Review

With this product, we receive the best monitoring and reports

How has it helped my organization?

Installing this product as a datacenter firewall for segregation and segmentation, and also configuring policies between zones.

What is most valuable?

Threat Prevention and WildFire features should be enabled in Palo Alto. With this product, we receive the best monitoring and reports.

What needs improvement?

The VPN and decryption need improvement.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No, I did not encounter any issues with Palo Alto's firewall. The product is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No, but you should do the rightsizing before buying the product. 

How are customer service and technical support?

They provide a medium level of technical support.

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

I used Cisco. Palo Alto is better for datacenter and Cisco for perimeter.

How was the initial setup?

Straightforward to use.

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

More expensive than other firewalls.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Cisco Firepower.

What other advice do I have?

My advice is to install Palo Alto's firewall as a datacenter. You should enable the features (Threat Prevention (AS, AV, and Vulnerability Protection), File Blocking, URL Filtering, WildFire, etc.).

Palo Alto's firewall is the best firewall right now. I have used Palo Alto since 2014.
