The installation and configuration were slick.We receive infrastructure security warnings from it. So, we know what is going on and what needs to be addressed.It has the ability to install agents. It is pretty straightforward. You can automate the process pretty easily.It is a very stable product.The quicker implementation of changes to our infrastructure from Alert Logic tell us if there are any problems.It improves our security. Before, we didn't have anything scanning our containers. We had software scanning all the physical servers, but we had nothing to scan our containers. With Alert Logic, we can do that.

The most valuable features are that it's user-friendly, has interesting features, URL filtering, and threat prevention.For those who want a next-gen firewall that's easy to configure and easy to operate, I think you should go for Palo Alto.With the IP address flag, I was able to see that I was being hacked.

Cons
This product needs to mature more. While it is a good product, there are some areas where it needs work.They have ideas and email you whatever they find, but they don't have a dedicated security team who will work on an attack or a specific security instance.I would like to see it do initial scans and start capturing data, which it will truly analyze, not just be a reporting system saying, "Here is an email. Here is an email. Here is an email."The product needs to mature. We don't want to be bombarded with unnecessary issues and have the real ones slip through.The documentation, especially with the initial setup, needs improvement.I would like more data on the alert payload. It would be good to have the ability to customize the alert payload to add whatever data that we want on there. Right now, it is a bit limited.

Palo Alto's maintenance needs to be improved.The documentation needs to be improved. I need better information about how to configure it and what the best practices are.Sometimes when you want to group a set of ports, and communicate with Palo Alto, you cannot group TCP and UDP ports together. This needs to be adjusted.The price of licenses should be lowered to make it less costly to scale our solution.I think they can use some improvement on FID.The solution needs to improve its local technical support services. There is no premium support offered in our market.It's not so easy to set up a test environment, because it's not so easy to get the test license. The vendor only gives you 90 days for a test license; it's a tough license to get.The organization mail security solutions could be improved. There is no mail security solution available.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Alert Logic has better competitive pricing than some of its competitors.Almost any product that is on the AWS Marketplace is super easy to subscribe to.Our ROI would probably be zero. We don't even use it. It sits in there. We get emails and just delete them. Around the world, we don't even use it.

If you want to have all of the good features then you have to pay extra for licensing.It is an expensive solution and I would like to see a drop in price.It's not too expensive.The pricing and the licensing are pretty competitive at this stage. As a reseller, I would like to see the price come down a little bit so I can compete better against other firewalls because we do that all the time.
