Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Prisma Access protects all app traffic, so that users can gain access to all apps and that's very important because we need to be able to access everything. It also allows us to access non-web apps; anything internal that we need access to, we can access.""The most valuable feature is the ability to join your network and provide access through the VPN.""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.""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.""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 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.""It's great that we can make sure a machine meets the minimum requirements before users are allowed to log in."

"I can say that it's stable and the performance is acceptable.""The solution offers multiple OS support."

Cons
"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.""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.""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 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.""Prisma's integration between operational technology and IT should be more seamless. Right now, it requires additional setup and maintenance.""There is some particular traffic that the security team wants to filter out and apply their own policies and they cannot.""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."

"Licensing includes things that my customers don't need.""Lacks multiple cloud integration."

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