Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The initial setup is very straightforward.""It's very stable. Sometimes after installing the boxes, we leave them for one or two years. We would just touch the box in the case of the customer needing new requirements or changes to the setup.""The features I find most valuable is WildFire, user integration, and the basic technology features.""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."

"We don't need to connect anymore. It is automatically connected when you log on in Windows.""The ZPA is a unique feature which offers VPN along with all the additional security needed."

Cons
"Dependencies of applications sometimes is a bit confusing.""Their next release should provide solutions for the mobile environment.""I would like to see better pricing and an easier logging process. Also, if there was a way to log a global log, everything could go onto the system. It would be better if there was a third log, otherwise one would have to do everything manually.""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."

"SCMP support would be one of the biggest improvements in my opinion. More speed improvements are also required.""It's an expensive solution."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The licensing cost is about 18,000 euros.""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."
