We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The ability to manage a large number of firewalls from a single point is most valuable."
"Technical support is helpful and knowledgeable."
"The compliance features are very effective at identifying things that need to be properly hardened."
"Panorama is very easy, easy to administrate, and easy to control."
"The installation process is very simple."
"The product can scale."
"The most valuable aspect of this solution is the ability to manage our devices centrally. Additionally, we can monitor the workforce connections, receive reports, and use the backup feature."
"The reporting is great."
"RedSeal integrates the network and gives us a visual or graphical overview of our network. If an organization is geographically dispersed, for instance, with one office in Canada and one office in the Philippines, the whole network, including all devices, is integrated into RedSeal, and you can see from where the traffic is going in and out."
"This is the only solution in the world that gives you a digital resilience score."
"The most valuable features are network mapping and configuration."
"There could be more integrations with third parties."
"The solution is extremely expensive. You can integrate it with other Palo Alto products, however, it ends up being too much."
"The configuration could be a bit better."
"It could be easier to manage. In the future, it should be much easier because it's not very easy to manage. So in the next release, I think it should be much easier to manage, especially in the first configuration. It could also be more stable."
"There were a few bugs a couple of years into it. There was a big bug where it had trouble communicating with the two main boxes."
"We found a vulnerability where when we have a low flow, like 2.7K, it is not getting fired by the threat prevention. That's something important to improve on. They should have a proxy or some solution to solve the issue. We also found some issues around decrypting the flow. When we have more flow than expected to decrypt, the performance goes down."
"The initial setup can be complex."
"The notification and alerting system could be improved."
"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."
"Sometimes, it required us to refresh the configuration. When we integrated any of the configurations into the device, sometimes, it could not detect the exact picture of that device. So, we had to reset the device to see that if it was giving true-positive results or false-positive results. In some cases, we were not able to get true-positive results. There was some kind of bug in that version. Its interface is not user-friendly and needs to be improved. It takes time to understand the interface and various options. Skybox has quite a user-friendly interface. They could provide a feature for compliance audit policy if it is already not there. A compliance audit policy ensures that all configurations are based on the best practices standards, such as CIS benchmarks standard or other similar standards. It provides visibility about whether your device configuration is based on best practices or not. Usually, such a feature is provided by other solutions such as Meteor or Tenable Nessus."
"The dashboard should be improved to make correlating data easier to do."
"Its cost is quite high."
"Licensing fees are paid yearly."
"You can buy the hardware only and each box is not even $10,000. It's only $8,000 for the unit itself. However, then you are charged a three-year license at $81,000."
"The solution is priced well and there is a license for this solution that we pay annually for."
"The price of the licenses could be lower. Still, because we have Panorama with 25 firewalls, Palo Alto gives us a good discount."
"We pay approximately $3,000 a year in order to use the product."
"The pricing could be lower."
"It is pretty reasonable as compared to other companies."
"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."
