Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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.
My primary use case for this solution is for a secure gateway.
The reporting feature helps our performance.
The anti-spam features are excellent on the email firewalls.
The most valuable feature is the ability to remove bad messages that were delivered, prior to being classified as unwanted.
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.
I would give this product a rating of 9 out of 10 due to some slight issues of performance.
They should make their user interface a little more user-friendly.
The solution could be improved with the addition of PLP and email encryption features.
Proofpoint should have better integration with complex environments that need more than one instance of Proofpoint, as there are issues with nested instances.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The licensing fees are on an annual basis, and there are no costs in addition to the standard fees.
It's pretty expensive but with respect to value for money, it's okay.
It is a reasonable price compared to other solutions on the market.
The pricing is OK, it is not too expensive.
More expensive than other firewalls.
