Pros

Its scalability was the main reason for moving to Google Cloud. It also comes with a lot of features. We are satisfied with the features it has.""The solution is very easy to use. It's easy to navigate and to work with."

"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.""The scalability of the solution is excellent."

Cons
"The initial setup was quite complex.""The setup could be more user-friendly.""the documentation could be a bit better in terms of what is presented on the screen versus what actually happens.""I think this product needs to shift the focus from our software, our solution, like social media analytics to our customers; not maintenance in the hardware.""We have some challenges related to purging the data. We get a lot of data on a daily basis that has to be refreshed on the site, but we are seeing some challenges with that. They can also include some third-party integration. We have one Akamai dependency. If they can come up with some API to talk to Akamai, it would be good.""The solution could be more reasonably priced. We find it to be a bit expensive right now."

"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.""There is some particular traffic that the security team wants to filter out and apply their own policies and they cannot."

Overview

Google’s mission is to organize the world‘s information and make it universally accessible and useful.

Since our founding in 1998, Google has grown by leaps and bounds. From offering search in a single language we now offer dozens of products and services—including various forms of advertising and web applications for all kinds of tasks—in scores of languages. And starting from two computer science students in a university dorm room, we now have thousands of employees and offices around the world. A lot has changed since the first Google search engine appeared. But some things haven’t changed: our dedication to our users and our belief in the possibilities of the Internet itself.

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.
