Palo Alto Networks NG Firewalls Review

I like GlobalProtect, the URL filtering and the threat prevention, but the boot time should be improved on

What is our primary use case?

Finding a solution for easy management, where the company is protected in a matter where an unwanted software is blocked.

How has it helped my organization?

Functional and very futureproof but a bit hard to manage, and the worst thing is that it takes almost 20 mins to boot up, and to commit a config takes half that time.

What is most valuable?

  • GlobalProtect
  • URL filtering
  • Threat prevention. 

These features are great, but they have drawbacks and could be a bit better, flexible, and easy to manage since it takes the admin time to get them right. 

What needs improvement?

  • Boot time
  • Easy UI for the non-network specialists
  • Commit time
  • Virtualization
  • Credit to Palo Alto knowledgebase. 

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.
