We previously used McAfee vs Palo Alto. McAfee is a traditional antivirus. It provided little to no value. We didn't see it stop anything. It wasn't blocking anything. The management was difficult to use because of the virus definitions, where you had to sync every endpoint each day with these updates. View full review »

We were the victim of ransomware. Prior to that we were using an antivirus application from Sophos, which was not able to detect that ransomware engine which encrypted our servers and client machine. So, it was a disaster, and we started looking for another solution which could perform better and give us zero-day threat alerts. I researched which would be the better solution and came across Traps. We ran version 3.5 for a period of one month, where we tested it against malware, viruses, etc. The performance of the Traps has proven itself to work very well in detection. View full review »

We are using Symantec now. We were thinking of purchasing Palo Alto but because the EDR part was not there at the time, we went with Symantec which has the EDR solution. EDR is essential for our project. I think it has been announced that EDR is part of Traps now. View full review »

Since we were a Fortinet shop, we previously used the FortiClient endpoint agent. We switched to Palo alto FWs and endpoint protection because it is a more mature product with advanced next-gen capabilities not available from the Fortinet solution. View full review »
