A trusted and reliable solution with a good interface and good technical support

What is our primary use case?

This solution is running behind the infrastructure and behind the hypervisor itself. We have two firewalls and two nodes in the cluster environment. This solution is suitable for both cloud and hybrid-cloud deployments. I have implemented a cloud project, and one hybrid as well. The hybrid was between a public and a local cloud.

Pros and Cons

  • "I like the Cisco ASDM (Adaptive Security Device Manager), which is the configuration interface for the Cisco firewall."
  • "The Sandbox and the Web Censoring in this solution need to be improved."

What other advice do I have?

This is the number one firewall product that I recommend. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

User friendly and easy to deploy but doesn't have next-generation firewall capabilities

What is our primary use case?

The solution is primarily used as a basic firewall. I'm running my WiFi through it.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is good for a basic firewall for a small business or for home use."
  • "The solution would not be suitable for anything large-scale."

What other advice do I have?

I'm just a customer. I'm not a partner or reseller. I'm not sure which version of the solution our organization is currently using. I understand that it is the most up-to-date version. I updated it two months ago. The solution is good for a small business or home. I'm not sure what the paid version offers or if it has more security features that would be suitable for larger businesses. The version I'm using works well and is simple. It's more reliable than a router. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.

Good interface and dashboards with excellent application visibility

Pros and Cons

  • "The interface and dashboards are good."
  • "The pricing could be improved upon."

What other advice do I have?

While we mainly deal with on-premises deployment models, occasionally we also do hybrid deployments. We're not a customer. We're a systems integrator. We're a reseller. We sell solutions to our clients. Palo Alto is very good at policymaking. It's like they have a single policy that you can use. Other solutions don't have single policy use, which means you have to configure everything. There may be many consoles or many tasks that you'll have to worry about other solutions. Multiple task configuration should not be there, and yet, for many companies, it is. This isn't the case with Palo Alto…

Scalable with an easy setup and good security

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution as a firewall for security purposes in order to keep our organization safe.

Pros and Cons

  • "The initial setup is pretty simple."
  • "Some people complain that the solution tends to have a steep learning curve. It could be because most people have basic familiarity with Cisco or other similar products and maybe have never worked closely with Juniper products."

What other advice do I have?

We're just customers. We don't have a business relationship with Juniper. I'm not sure which version of the solution we're using. We'd recommend the solution to other organizations. On a scale from one to ten, I'd rate the solution an eight.
