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 of this solution is how it keeps up-to-date with viruses.""The solution has plenty of features.""The most valuable feature is the cloud-based protection against zero-day malware attacks.""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 scalability is acceptable.""The most valuable feature is the improved security that it offers.""The solution is completely integrated with all the other Palo Alto products. I think that it is the best part for endpoint protection. The firewall features include URL and DNS filtering, threat protection, and antivirus.""Remote access is excellent."

Cons
"The automation and responsiveness need improvement.""The configuration should be made a little bit easier. I understand why it is as it is, but there should be a way to make it easier from the user side.""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.""The price of WildFire should be reduced in order to make it more affordable for our customers.""In the future, I would like to see more automation in the reporting.""The support is good but they could be faster.""The cost of the solution is excessively high."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The price is a bit higher than the other products such as TrendMicro, or FireEye.""The pricing is highly expensive.""We are on an annual subscription. When we purchased the firewall, we had activated this solutions license for a minimum of one year. The price of the solution is fair.""WildFire is a little bit pricey. Sometimes it's difficult to sell it to customers at the current price.""The physical appliance is around €3,000 or €4,000, and then, you have the licensing for a year for around €3,000.""We pay between $3,000 and $4,000 CAD ($2,200 - $3,000 USD) per year to maintain this solution.""I think they should lower the price of this solution""This is an expensive product and the market for Palo Alto in Poland could be much bigger if the pricing was comparable to Fortinet."
