Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable feature is the cloud-based protection against zero-day malware attacks.""What I like about Palo Alto is that it is a complete product, with everything in it.""The most valuable feature is the improved security that it offers.""The technical support is good.""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 most valuable feature for us is the VPN.""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."

"What we are mainly using are the RSA concentrator, RSA Decoder, Archiver, Broker, and Log Decoder.""The most valuable feature is the security that it provides.""The most valuable features are the threat prediction and network forensics.""Performance and reporting are very good.""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."

Cons
"The only complaint that we receive from our customers is in regards to the price.""In the future, I would like to see more automation in the reporting.""The price of WildFire should be reduced in order to make it more affordable for our customers.""The deployment model could be better.""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.""When you contact support, there is no guarantee that they will be available to help you tackle the issue that you are facing.""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."

"Security needs improvement.""It is not so easy to customize this product.""Lots of competing products have vulnerability protection built into their products, and this solution would be improved by including that support.""The user interface is a little bit difficult for new users and it needs to be improved.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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 pricing is highly expensive.""I think they should lower the price of this solution""This solution is very pricey and it depends on the package that you implement.""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."

More Palo Alto Networks WildFire Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Our license is for one year.""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.
