The price of licenses should be lowered to make it less costly to scale our solution.

I would like to see consolidated licensing for on-premises solutions. This would give us all of the features available for the one box.

The solution needs to improve Reverse DNS functionalities.

Right now, when you check the IP address, it tells all. It assumes that that IP address is locally available on the inside. When the request is going back to me it's supposed to do what we call rights. Instead of giving me the public IP address in my response, it's supposed to give me the private IP address or the local IP address so that I can reach the device locally. That's the challenge right now.

Sometimes when you want to group a set of ports, and communicate with Palo Alto, you cannot group TCP and UDP ports together. This needs to be adjusted.

The documentation needs to be improved. I need better information about how to configure it and what the best practices are.

The IPS can be improved on the solution.  The itineration, for example. Also, if additional features, like SD Wan, etc. can be added. This would be helpful.

Other additional features that could be added include Individual Traps. In terms of enhancement for overall protection, we would like more Traps or other solutions that are developing within the firewall.

The solution needs to improve its local technical support services. There is no premium support offered in our market.

It's not so easy to set up a test environment because it's not so easy to get the test license.

The vendor only gives you 90 days for a test license; it's a tough license to get.

We use four Palo Alto solutions in stand-alone mode and but it's hard to use when I use it in Panorama. Palo Alto's maintenance needs to be improved.

I think they can use some improvement on FID. There are lots of false positives and those can be eradicated. Sometimes you can't identify a 10-year-old doc, but they can probably update those signatures and false positives, so it would be helpful and save us a lot of time.
