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 zero-trust part of this solution.""The most valuable feature is the ability to join your network and provide access through the VPN.""It's great that we can make sure a machine meets the minimum requirements before users are allowed to log in.""The users can securely access any cloud data centers or cloud platforms. In terms of the features, it has all the features that Palo Alto Next-Generation Firewall has. It is also very stable and scalable.""The scalability of the solution is excellent.""There are plenty of features this solution provides and the most valuable would be the complete security protection we are receiving. We are provided with similar security that the Palo Alto AWS solution has. This includes features such as a firewall and machine learning AI.""It's much faster and more secure than legacy solutions. It is also quite stable and scalable as well. We are able to see all the traffic in one place."

"I can safely say this is one of the best solutions I have seen for VPN access. It can achieve what other vendors may not be able to. This product will train you about exactly what an SSL should be. You can leverage it to do whatever you wish, the way you wish to do it. This is the solution if you want a perfectly scalable product for your enterprise that can help your mobile users and integrate with the latest technologies.""The most valuable feature is being able to securely connect and use virtual desktops.""It is customer-friendly. It is quite easy for our users to connect. There is also the flexibility of the features."

Cons
"The cloud setup is straightforward, and the onboarding process is much better, but the on-premises initial setup is slightly complex.""Better integration with the MDM solution would be useful.""The solution needs to be more compatible with other solutions. This is specifically a problem for us when it comes to healthcare applications. They have proprietary connection types and things of that nature that make compatibility a challenge sometimes.""When it comes to the VPN, it uses the global protect VPN functionality to connect remotely, but it has a feature limitation for assigning multiple IP sub-links to different user groups. It would be much better if we are able to assign the current IP blocks for the sub-links based on the user groups.""There is some particular traffic that the security team wants to filter out and apply their own policies and they cannot.""There can be some latency issues with the solution that should be improved.""It would be nice to manage Prisma Access through the cloud instead of through Panorama. You can use the cloud version to monitor Prisma Access, but it doesn't have all the features yet, and it's not 100% done."

More Prisma Access by Palo Alto Networks Cons »

"Zero test FDP (Fraud Protection and Prevention) should be improved.""This solution normally works but at times, we have had trouble with connectivity.""We want to switch to another solution because there are some challenges with the support from Pulse. The quality of documentation is also not good. It is sometimes very hard to find documentation that provides a solution and describes how all this works."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This is not an expensive product and everything is included with one license.""Prisma Access is a little bit expensive.""The solution requires a license and the technical support has extra costs. The licensing model could improve.""The price has been good for the ROI during these difficult times for the cruise industry. There are no hidden costs; what the product offers is what you get."
