Palo Alto Networks WildFire Review

The cloud-based services are a nice feature.

What is our primary use case?

My primary use case for this solution is for a secure gateway. It creates a proxy or an appropriation for the suspicious files that can be damaging. 

How has it helped my organization?

The cloud-based services are a nice feature.

What needs improvement?

I do not find it as secure as other solutions. Furthermore, the cloud-based solutions are still not legally available in countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Russia. Some countries do not allow the service according to country obligations. They can not use the cloud services for government offices. So, Wildfire is not allowed in several locations.

I think it would be nice for Palo Alto to work without the connection to the cloud. It is 100% powerful when connected to the cloud. But, if you disconnect from the cloud, you only get 40-50% power.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

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

I have previous experience with FireEye and Symantec. I find that Symantec is a standalone on an enterprise level secure market, which I cannot say for WildFire.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward and easy.
