Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"It's great that we can make sure a machine meets the minimum requirements before users are allowed to log in.""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.""Security is absolutely spot-on, really top-notch. It's the result of all the components that come together, such as the HIP [Host Information Profile] and components like Forcepoint, providing end-user content inspection, and antivirus. It incorporates DLP features and that's fantastic because Prisma Access makes sure that all of the essential prerequisites are in place before a user can log in or can be tunneled into.""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.""The most valuable feature is the zero-trust part of this solution.""We're now able to go after contracts that require a Zero Trust solution and Prisma's other technology solutions.""The most valuable feature is the ability to join your network and provide access through the VPN.""The scalability of the solution is excellent."

Cons
"Prisma's integration between operational technology and IT should be more seamless. Right now, it requires additional setup and maintenance.""We've run into some challenges, having hit a lot of bugs over the past year in the deployment of GlobalProtect. We've had our fair share of issues that I haven't been happy with. We're working with the support organization to remediate them and waiting for updated releases. The response on getting the bugs fixed has not been what I would consider adequate for a product like this.""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.""The cloud setup is straightforward, and the onboarding process is much better, but the on-premises initial setup is slightly complex.""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.""There is some particular traffic that the security team wants to filter out and apply their own policies and they cannot.""It's not really Prisma's fault, but when you try to create exceptions you don't really have those abilities. You cannot say, on the management platform, "Hey, for these users I want to create these exceptions." That is one thing that I have gotten some complaints about, and we have faced some challenges there.""Better integration with the MDM solution would be useful."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The solution requires a license and the technical support has extra costs. The licensing model could improve.""It's pricey, it's not cheap. But you get what you pay for.""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.""This is not an expensive product and everything is included with one license.""Prisma Access is a little bit expensive."
