Pros
Using WildFire has reduced the number of viruses and the amount of malware that comes into our system, which means that I don't have to rely on the end-users to identify it.The way that the solution quickly updates to adjust to threats is the solution's most valuable aspect. When there's a security attack, within five minutes, all Wildfire subscribers have access to updates so that all systems will be safe. Its threat prevention is way better than other vendor products.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.

The most valuable features are the integration and ease of use.The most valuable feature is that we can create our own connectors for any application, and NetWitness provides the training and tools to do it.The most valuable features are the packet decoder, log decoder, and concentrator.It's fully scalable. There is no limit. Of course, the license limits per day the number of terabytes. In my opinion, it's very flexible.The most valuable feature is the ability to write rules and triggers for network communication, and then being able to investigate based on that.The most valuable features are its ingestion of logs and raising of alerts based on those logs.Their technical support responds quickly and are knowledgable.The most valuable feature is the correlation. It can report in real-time and monitor the management.

Cons
It would be nice if there was an easier way to install and deploy it, such as through the inclusion of wizards.The size of Palo Alto's cloud is big but it could be easier to use from a product management perspective.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.

The documentation is not as structured as I would like, personally, and I think that it can be improved and made much more user-friendly.The initial setup is very complex and should be simplified.Log aggregation is an issue with this solution because there are a huge number of alerts in a single instance.They should implement algorithms to digest that data and produce additional, more advanced reporting, alerting and support of internal security teams.The system looks like it is a mix of a bunch of different systems, and nothing looked like it was quite together.I'd like to see improvement in its ease of use. It's basically unusable. It's overly complex.The initial setup was complex because it takes a lot of time to complete the implementation.The implementation needs assistance.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We pay between $3,000 and $4,000 CAD ($2,200 - $3,000 USD) per year to maintain this solution.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.

Many clients are not able to purchase the packet capability because there is a huge amount of data, and the cost depends on the number of EPS (Events per second), as well as the number of gigabytes of data per day.We have a perpetual license, so the total cost of ownership is not very expensive. It's a good investment.This is a pricey solution; it's not cheap.The licenses are good but the cost is very expensive.It is cheap.

Overview
WildFire™ cloud-based threat analysis service is the industry’s most advanced analysis and prevention engine for highly evasive zero-day exploits and malware. The cloud-based service employs a unique multi-technique approach combining dynamic and static analysis, innovative machine learning techniques, and a groundbreaking bare metal analysis environment to detect and prevent even the most evasive threats.

If you’re relying on log data to detect and prevent cyber threats, you’re in trouble. Attackers increasingly evade detection of log-centric security and network monitoring tools. But logs combined with full packet, endpoint NetFlow data are proven to provide the essential details for early threat detection. Here’s a closer look at our solution.
