Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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 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 of this solution is how it keeps up-to-date with viruses.""You have better control because you define apps. You just don't define ports. You define apps, and the apps are monitored in the traffic. It is more specific than the Cisco firewall when it comes to our needs.""The most valuable feature is the cloud-based protection against zero-day malware attacks.""The backup is the best feature.""The most valuable feature for us is the VPN.""The most valuable feature is the improved security that it offers."

Cons
"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 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.""The threat intelligence that we receiving in the reporting was not as expected. We were expecting more. Additionally, we should be able to whitelist a specific file based on a variety of attributes.""The size of Palo Alto's cloud is big but it could be easier to use from a product management perspective.""The cost of the solution is excessively high.""Management and web filtering can be improved. There should also be better reporting, particularly around web filtering.""The automation and responsiveness need improvement."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The physical appliance is around €3,000 or €4,000, and then, you have the licensing for a year for around €3,000.""The price of the Palo Alto Networks WildFire license is expensive. When it came time to renew the solution the price doubled.""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.""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.""The solution is overpriced.""It depends on the features. Additional features cost additional money as well.""The price is a bit higher than the other products such as TrendMicro, or FireEye."
