The most valuable aspects of this solution are that it's simple and stable. It has better security aspects compared to other similar solutions.Embedding it into my application development lifecycle prevents data loss and business disruption, allowing the adoption to operate at the speed of my AWS Cloud.It has a good performance which helps you with the stability of your virtual environment.In AWS, Palo Alto provides us a better view than flow logs for network traffic.App-ID and User-ID have repeatedly shown value in securing business critical systems.It provides complete security posture from end-to-end. This has given us better visibility into what our security aspects are.You already can scale it if you put it in Auto Scaling groups. If you put it in a load balancer, it should already be able to scale.It allows us to see all our traffic to properly secure it and only allow what is needed through the firewall.

In the next release, I would like for them to develop an anti-malware functionality in which it checks for malicious files like Cisco has.It can definitely improve on the performance.It has to be more scalable for the deployment of VMs on the cloud.I would like to see a more thorough QA process. We have had some difficulties from bugs in releases.We have ran into issues with Palo Alto’s limitations for resolving large IP lists from DNS lookups, as well as the antivirus interfering with App-ID.The product could provide protection above Layer 3, which gets into the application layer and provides better visibility into those aspects of application security.On the cloud side, they need to come up with more HA solutions to support the multi-region.AWS doesn't integrate well with third-party firewalls.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
The pricing and licensing of this product on AWS should be from $1.28/hr or $4,500.00/yr. Then, it would be a good price for the performance that it delivers.We used BYOL, because of the cost to own.The pricing and licensing of this product on AWS for a three-year commitment is a great deal, if you can plan that far ahead.Because the solution was getting deployed on AWS, it was the best place to go and it was available there.One of the factors for selecting Palo Alto was they had flexible pricing. They had a pay-as-you-go model. Comparable to other products, such as Check Point, the price point was definitely a plus.The pricing was expensive but it was comparable to the competition.AWS is available as a AMI that you can purchase from the AWS Marketplace. Therefore, you need to purchase the licensing, since it is per AMI. Then, you deploy it on a regular EC2. Then, for on-premise, you can use both Palo Alto's software and hardware.The price is not bad. They have a yearly renewal fee, and the pricing is exactly where we expect it to be.

Overview

ESET Dynamic Threat Defense provides another layer of security for ESET products like Mail Security and endpoint products by utilizing a cloud-based sandboxing technology to detect new, never before seen types of threats.

The VM-Series is a virtualized form factor of our next-generation firewall that can be deployed in a range of private and public cloud computing environments based on technologies from VMware, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Citrix and KVM.

The VM-Series natively analyzes all traffic in a single pass to determine the application identity, the content within, and the user identity. These core elements of your business can then be used as integral components of your security policy, enabling you to improve your security efficacy through a positive control model and reduce your incident response time though complete visibility into applications across all ports.

In both private and public cloud environments, the VM-Series can be deployed as a perimeter gateway, an IPsec VPN termination point, and a segmentation gateway, protecting your workloads with application enablement and threat prevention policies.
