Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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.""The most valuable feature is the Automatic Verdict, to recognize whether something is a threat, or not.""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.""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 most valuable feature for us is the VPN.""For example, if a security Intel threat talks about an IOC. We can then go to our MSP and say, "Is there a signature for this particular type of malware that just came out?" And if they'll say yes, then we'll say, "Okay. Does it apply to these firewalls? And have we seen any hits on it?" There's absolutely value in it.""The technical support is good.""The most valuable feature is the improved security that it offers."

"The most valuable features are the packet decoder, log decoder, and concentrator.""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 integration and ease of use.""Performance and reporting are very good.""The most valuable features are the threat prediction and network forensics.""The most valuable feature is the security that it provides.""What we are mainly using are the RSA concentrator, RSA Decoder, Archiver, Broker, and Log Decoder.""The most valuable features are the packet inspection and the automated incident response."

Cons
"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.""I would like to see them continue on their developmental roadmap for the product.""The size of Palo Alto's cloud is big but it could be easier to use from a product management perspective.""It would be nice if there was an easier way to install and deploy it, such as through the inclusion of wizards.""When you contact support, there is no guarantee that they will be available to help you tackle the issue that you are facing.""It's not really their problem, it's a problem across the board. There will always be problems with interrupted traffic. We have to set it up where we're playing a middle man game where we're stripping it out, looking at it, and then putting it back together and sending it on its way. That requires CPU cycles. And there's some overhead with that.""The deployment model could be better.""The price of WildFire should be reduced in order to make it more affordable for our customers."

More Palo Alto Networks WildFire Cons »

"Log aggregation is an issue with this solution because there are a huge number of alerts in a single instance.""The initial setup is very complex and should be simplified.""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 user interface is a little bit difficult for new users and it needs to be improved.""Lots of competing products have vulnerability protection built into their products, and this solution would be improved by including that support.""It is not so easy to customize this product.""Security needs improvement.""More customizability is required, which is something that they need to improve on."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The licensing fees are on an annual basis, and there are no costs in addition to the standard fees.""We pay between $3,000 and $4,000 CAD ($2,200 - $3,000 USD) per year to maintain this solution.""This solution is very pricey and it depends on the package that you implement.""I think they should lower the price of this solution""The pricing is highly expensive.""This is an expensive product and the market for Palo Alto in Poland could be much bigger if the pricing was comparable to Fortinet.""The price is a bit higher than the other products such as TrendMicro, or FireEye.""Pricing could be improved."

More Palo Alto Networks WildFire Pricing and Cost Advice »

"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.""Our license is for one year."

Questions from the Community
Top Answer: It would help if they could provide the malware analytics in the core package as that would make the cost more reasonable. Licensing is paid annually and I believe the cost is somewhere between 12,000… more »
