What is most valuable?

There are two features that I find very good. This solution provides a DLP on the cloud and very few people have a scanning device for data at rest. The second feature… more»

How has it helped my organization?

From my client's perspective, I can say that they had no control over their cloud data that they needed to protect. They had solutions that can handle their on-premise… more»

What needs improvement?

There are a lot of cloud-based applications that are supported, such as Box, Skype, Google Drive, and SharePoint, but there are many more than have not been totally… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing for this solution is on the higher end. Our customer felt that the solution was a bit overpriced but they had nothing that offered them better protection. The… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Our customer was not aware of how to protect their cloud data, and this is the first solution that they chose.

What other advice do I have?

This is a fairly good product if you are looking for something to protect data at rest. There are alternatives, like Oracle and McAfee, that also provide similar… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

There are now more vendors doing this, such as Oracle, but when we started there were very few. This is one of the reasons for choosing this solution.

What is most valuable?

Its hands-off security and the fact that we don't have to maintain it are the most valuable features.

How has it helped my organization?

Having them there to support our network and watch in real-time has been a huge benefit.

What needs improvement?

They automatically update and they should give us time to fully understand what they're updating so that we can make sure it doesn't impact production.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I am not sure about the cost, but my advice to others would be that it is not a mistake going with them. You get what you pay for and I believe they are the best in their… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Before we started using this solution, we tried to secure our networks ourselves. That did not work out so we started using another vendor. However, since we switched over… more»

What other advice do I have?

They're unique in that they're watching our network. They're just constantly updating and patching, watching for potential threats. As long as they keep on doing that but… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate other options but only Palo Alto Networks could offer what we were looking for.

What is most valuable?

Monitoring is the most valuable feature because we can easily monitor all kinds of stuff coming over the network. We can check the dashboard and work accordingly.

How has it helped my organization?

We had a government project. When I was there, they asked to open some kind of port. We just had to initiate that traffic. Then we checked what kind of ports were blocked. We gave them the ports and… more»

What needs improvement?

Overall it is actually very good. I haven't yet had any issue at all. One thing that would help is if we could get a guide. With Cisco, for example, you can just type the problem regarding your Cisco… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution is actually very expensive. I don't know the particulars since the purchasing team dealt with it.

What other advice do I have?

Ultimately, Palo Alto is a very advanced firewall. The firewall uses activation awareness. This firewall can easily identify what applications are running behind the network. This is a good solution… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We just checked which firewall was top rated. We selected two such firewalls. One was Check Point and the other was Palo Alto. Both of them are comparatively good.

Palo Alto Networks Prisma SaaS Questions

What is Palo Alto Networks Prisma SaaS?

Since software as a service is so easy, use of SaaS applications is exploding. Because of that simplicity, though, the security risks of SaaS are also on the rise. Unsanctioned SaaS apps can expose sensitive data and propagate malware, and even sanctioned SaaS adoption can increase the risk of data exposure, breaches and noncompliance. By offering advanced data protection and consistency across applications, Prisma SaaS reins in the risks. It addresses your cloud access security broker needs and provides advanced capabilities in risk discovery, data loss prevention, compliance assurance, data governance, user behavior monitoring and advanced threat prevention. Now you can maintain compliance while preventing data leaks and business disruption through a fully cloud-delivered CASB deployment.
