Palo Alto Networks DNS Security Valuable Features

User at a university with 10,001+ employees

Palo Alto has a range of products. They have very secure 600 DNS as well as 100 DNS. They have anti-hacking features which are quite useful. They have virus protection within the firewall.

They have other products that are geared towards protecting the DNS. All of their product line is highly secure with built-in security. You can protect DNS within the firewall as most of the features are built-in. It's not like a product within the firewall. It's already built-in.

The initial setup is very, very straightforward.

The scalability is good.

The stability is excellent and the product is very mature.

When comparing other cloud-based DNS security solutions to this one I have found the main beneficial feature in this solution we do not need to change our architecture. There was no need to change the configuration or to do any modification to the user's end. The user's DNS will be the same, the traffic will flow through the same firewall, and it will give us the DNS level security. For other OEMs or other solutions, we need to map their DNS to the public DNS and there is a need to modify the DNS at the user level. Additionally, the solution works in real-time and it is easier to deploy users. For example, to deploy 1,000 - 2,000 users having to do the modifications in each user's IT environment would take a lot of time.

Additionally, I have found the solution to be very user-friendly.
