Anonymous UserSenior Specialist: Concept Development at a computer software company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I like the ability to share the connections or simply to be able to pass the credentials for a connection to other colleagues without bothering too much about the connection being tracked or about security, because each and every user will require a secret password, so I don't really care about sending the details. It's very secure."
"I like that it is really easy to use, it's a simple product. It can connect remotely with a secure network."
"I like how I don't need to see the solution or start it up. I just use my computer and have it working in the background. I start my laptop and it's there and working. That's the most important feature."
"It's easy to handle. You can have it on Windows, Linux or Mac, that's quite useful."
"It is easy to handle, you can have it on Windows, Mac, and Linux."
"This solution is stable. There have been no technical issues."
"The most valuable feature is the connection feature."
"The solution is very easy to use and set up."
"The initial setup is very straightforward."
"It's very stable. Sometimes after installing the boxes, we leave them for one or two years. We would just touch the box in the case of the customer needing new requirements or changes to the setup."
"The features I find most valuable is WildFire, user integration, and the basic technology features."
"The most valuable feature is the zero-trust part of this solution."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to join your network and provide access through the VPN."
"It's great that we can make sure a machine meets the minimum requirements before users are allowed to log in."
"The users can securely access any cloud data centers or cloud platforms. In terms of the features, it has all the features that Palo Alto Next-Generation Firewall has. It is also very stable and scalable."
"If they could simplify connections via other machines, like Linux or Mac OS X, it would be helpful."
"The logout should be automized and it should have a reminder that you have logged in into a private network."
"The hotspots give me connectivity issues occasionally. It could be easier to use if it allowed me to choose the hotspot."
"Every two weeks there was a new version to install which was annoying for the users."
"It would be useful to have an automatic install process where if you connect and you don't have the latest version, it should be automatically done."
"I have been working with the same interface for the last ten years. I would say that it needs some improvements made."
"There are situations where the connection drops, and you may not even be aware of it until you try to do something critical."
"Behavior analytics and other newer technologies should be integrated into the solution."
"Dependencies of applications sometimes is a bit confusing."
"Their next release should provide solutions for the mobile environment."
"I would like to see better pricing and an easier logging process. Also, if there was a way to log a global log, everything could go onto the system. It would be better if there was a third log, otherwise one would have to do everything manually."
"The cloud setup is straightforward, and the onboarding process is much better, but the on-premises initial setup is slightly complex."
"Better integration with the MDM solution would be useful."
"The solution needs to be more compatible with other solutions. This is specifically a problem for us when it comes to healthcare applications. They have proprietary connection types and things of that nature that make compatibility a challenge sometimes."
"When it comes to the VPN, it uses the global protect VPN functionality to connect remotely, but it has a feature limitation for assigning multiple IP sub-links to different user groups. It would be much better if we are able to assign the current IP blocks for the sub-links based on the user groups."
"Sometimes there is a problem with the number of licenses for the end-user. The number of concurrent users is limited due to a valid license."
"The pricing depends on the requirement, so proper planning and an RF analysis help to properly size the solution and get the best pricing."
"The licensing costs are reasonable."
"The licensing cost is about 18,000 euros."
"This is not an expensive product and everything is included with one license."
"Prisma Access is a little bit expensive."
As mobile workers roam to different locations, an always-on intelligent VPN helps AnyConnect client devices to automatically select the optimal network access point and adapt its tunneling protocol to the most efficient method. This may include voice over IP (VoIP) traffic, TCP-based application access, or Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) protocol for latency-sensitive traffic.
Prisma Access provides protection straight from the cloud to make access to the cloud secure. It combines the connectivity and security you need – and delivers it everywhere you need it.
