Using WildFire has reduced the number of viruses and the amount of malware that comes into our system, which means that I don't have to rely on the end-users to identify it.The way that the solution quickly updates to adjust to threats is the solution's most valuable aspect. When there's a security attack, within five minutes, all Wildfire subscribers have access to updates so that all systems will be safe. Its threat prevention is way better than other vendor products.The most valuable feature is the Automatic Verdict, to recognize whether something is a threat, or not.They have many different options with Palo Alto WildFire and the set-up is quick. If you have all the details in hand, it does not take more than 15 minutes to deploy a firewall.It helps us when segmenting and securing the network and all sort of technologies, all sort of next generation needs. It's next generation phases of firewall like anti-virus, sandboxing, wifi, and VPN.Being an application-based firewall, this is one of the critical focus factors along with the threat prevention services it provides.It is stable and pretty much scalable.The cloud-based services are a nice feature.

Cons
The integration is limited. The solution needs to offer better integration with multiple vendors.Product could include a user interface and be made simpler for customers to configure.Something that needs to improve, is the end-point protection.Most people are confused about how to use the right integration of the right Fortinet product.At least once a week we have a false alarm. This needs to be adjusted so that we get fewer of these occurrences.The response time from technical support should be improved.The licensing can be very confusing. It needs to be simplified.In the next release, I would like to see machine learning and anti-exploitation included.

It would be nice if there was an easier way to install and deploy it, such as through the inclusion of wizards.The size of Palo Alto's cloud is big but it could be easier to use from a product management perspective.I would like to see them continue on their developmental roadmap for the product.There are certain changes that I was expecting in the previous version, and I hope that they are soon fixed. All of the problems that I have faced so far have been resolved.Other vendors have some sort of bandwidth management built into the firewall itself and Palo Alto is missing that.As a firewall and 360 degrees of security, there needs to be more maturity.The initial setup was complex.I think it would be nice for Palo Alto to work without the connection to the cloud. It is 100% powerful when connected to the cloud. But, if you disconnect from the cloud, you only get 40-50% power.
