We now know a lot more detail about what our users are doing on the network.
It is very stable. It is fairly easy to use.
I have not actually called their support line, because we have a direct contact to a senior engineer in the company for any issues that we handle with them. I will say they are very responsive, and they do give you the information you need when you need it.​

You already can scale it if you put it in Auto Scaling groups. If you put it in a load balancer, it should already be able to scale.

They now know the details about their network traffic that they did not know before: Applications that they are using and some application they did not know they were using.
A solid operating system with all the necessary data center security features.

AWS has improved our agility to apply firewall rules. It has reduced the amount of time that it takes to apply firewall rules because everything is based in the cloud.

In AWS, Palo Alto provides us a better view than flow logs for network traffic.

Palo Alto Networks VM-Series Cons

Christian Amaya
Support Engineer & IT Professional at SISAP
From time to time, they have released some content updates that have some issues, maybe twice a year.
There are various reports that come with the box or with the VMware, but you can only run them daily.

The user-friendliness of the UI could be improved.
The interface is all Java-based. I would prefer an HTML5 interface.
Just sometimes it can be a bit sluggish navigating through pages. That is just purely because of Java.​

On the cloud side, they need to come up with more HA solutions to support the multi-region.

The product could provide protection above Layer 3, which gets into the application layer and provides better visibility into those aspects of application security.

I would like to see a more thorough QA process. We have had some difficulties from bugs in releases.
We have ran into issues with Palo Alto’s limitations for resolving large IP lists from DNS lookups, as well as the antivirus interfering with App-ID.

It can definitely improve on the performance.
It has to be more scalable for the deployment of VMs on the cloud.
