Pros
Firewall Analyzer helps our organization to fulfill the compliance requirement as per ISO 27001, managing the network security effectively.I found the reporting to be useful because not only can I go back months, but it lists the individual URLs and the time that a particular person visited.

The solution is absolutely stable.The interface is very easy to use. You can do most jobs from one single console.The most valuable feature is WildFire.What I like most about this solution is that it allows me to push multiple policies on multiple followers at the same time.Using this solution means that you can store logs for longer periods, up to perhaps two years, depending on your attached storage.The dashboards are very good on Palo Alto. They offer a centralized dashboard for managers as well.It's helpful that the solution allows us to control all the firewalls from one device.It has made our ROIs easier, but consolidating the correlation of data into one single point, which is pretty great.

I would like more dashboard management.The general customer feedback is when saving the configuration, it takes a long time. That needs to be fixed. The troubleshooting, the debugging part is also a little bit of a pain. It's not user-friendly on the interface to do our debugging when comparing it with other firewalls, like Forcepoint.There is room for improvement in the integration within endpoint detection. They need to do some integration between endpoints and the firewalls.Customer support can improve.The dual WAN functionality is missing in this solution.Panorama needs to work on its configuration issues.It can take a few minutes to test to see if any changes are successful or not. This needs to be improved. A commit change should take a second, not a minute or more.We had some challenges with the initial setup, but it was more on a learning curve basis.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Needs to work on pricing.

You only pay for the license and there are no additional costs.Initially, Palo Alto looks expensive, but if you dig deeper then you will find that it is very comparable, or even cheaper than other solutions.It has freed up staff time, which is where we are seeing ROI.With the URL filtering, we probably went down from around four hours in response time to about five minutes.The licensing is not cheap. There are always hidden costs. You have support costs, or maybe you need to buy more optics on how the solution fits into the rest of your environment. It is possible some of the rest of your environment will need to change too.
