Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It provides a quicker response time to vulnerabilities and more visibility into traffic flows."
"It has made our ROIs easier, but consolidating the correlation of data into one single point, which is pretty great."
"It's helpful that the solution allows us to control all the firewalls from one device."
"The dashboards are very good on Palo Alto. They offer a centralized dashboard for managers as well."
"Using this solution means that you can store logs for longer periods, up to perhaps two years, depending on your attached storage."
"What I like most about this solution is that it allows me to push multiple policies on multiple followers at the same time."
"The most valuable feature is WildFire."
"The interface is very easy to use. You can do most jobs from one single console."
"The most valuable features are network mapping and configuration."
"This is the only solution in the world that gives you a digital resilience score."
"My pain point is the automation process is not well-documented. There are some things that they could improve on there."
"We had some challenges with the initial setup, but it was more on a learning curve basis."
"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."
"Panorama needs to work on its configuration issues."
"The dual WAN functionality is missing in this solution."
"Customer support can improve."
"There is room for improvement in the integration within endpoint detection. They need to do some integration between endpoints and the firewalls."
"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."
"The dashboard should be improved to make correlating data easier to do."
"One of the areas of concern is the GUI. It is important to our customers that the GUI looks beautiful. It's a Java Client, so you have a Java dependency."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."
"It has freed up staff time, which is where we are seeing ROI."
"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."
"You only pay for the license and there are no additional costs."
"We pay approximately $3,000 a year in order to use the product."
"The pricing model is reasonable for this class of solutions."
"Palo Alto is expensive and there are many cheaper firewalls, but they do not work as well."
"The pricing is based on the number of endpoints and devices, and we have seen it range from mid-five figures to low six figures."
