Umesh WadhwaCEO at E-DIRECT CLOUD SOLUTIONS SP. Z O.O.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"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 features are ease of use and the ability to customize it."
"ThreatConnect has a highly user-friendly interface."
"Other vendors have some sort of bandwidth management built into the firewall itself and Palo Alto is missing that."
"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."
"Integration is an area that could use some improvement."
"They should make it a little bit easier to generate events and share them with the community"
"It's pretty expensive but with respect to value for money, it's okay."
"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."
"The price of this product is in the mid-range, not too expensive, nor inexpensive."
"The price could be better."
