Cons
As a firewall and 360 degrees of security, there needs to be more maturity.The initial setup was complex.I think it would be nice for Palo Alto to work without the connection to the cloud. It is 100% powerful when connected to the cloud. But, if you disconnect from the cloud, you only get 40-50% power.I would give this product a rating of 9 out of 10 due to some slight issues of performance.They should make their user interface a little more user-friendly.​The VPN and decryption need improvement.​They provide a medium level of technical support.The data analytical system for deployment needs to improve.

It is a reasonable price compared to other solutions on the market.The pricing is OK, it is not too expensive.​More expensive than other firewalls.​It is expensive, a feature more accessible to enterprise class customers, but provides an enhanced possibility that Zero- or near-Zero-day threats may be identified and mitigated. The cost of the product weighed against the potential impact of even one successful crypto malware-type exploit may justify the expense.The pricing and licensing option should be categorized for various countries such as for Bangladesh.It's not particularly cheap, but it is absolutely worth it.It IS a bit expensive, but I think you get what you pay for. Value is there.
