Palo Alto NG Firewalls Review

Provides us with Zero Trust segmentation and an easy-to-use centralized control


What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for Zero Trust Data Center Segmentation with layer 2 Palo Alto firewalls. Segmentation has allowed us to put servers into Zones based off VLAN tags applied at the Nutanix level and can change "personalities" with the change of a VLAN tag.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution not only provides better security than flat VLAN segments but allows easy movement through the lifecycle of the server.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ease of use of the central Panorama to control all firewalls as one unit for baseline rules and then treat each firewall separately when needed.

What needs improvement?

I wish that the Palos had better system logging for the hardware itself.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for four years.
