Palo Alto Networks VM-Series Room for Improvement

The reporting. There are various reports that come with the box or with VMware, but you can only run them daily. If you want to generate a report from this week or the past month, you have to create a custom report. It is not that difficult, but I expect these reports to be pre-made. I would like to be able to choose the dates that I can run the reports. As of now, you can only run it for the day before, so this is one improvement they need to make. View full review »

The interface, maybe. It is all Java-based and I would prefer an HTML5 interface. It would make things a bit quicker. It is not that it is really bad once you are in, it is just another Java-based application that is not amazing. I am not really a fan of Java-based applications. The user-friendliness of the UI could be improved. View full review »

When you have a client compare box against box, a lot of times Palo Alto is a bit more expensive, but its network firewalls have a very rich ratio. View full review »

The product could provide protection above Layer 3, which gets into the application layer and provides better visibility into those aspects of application security. This would be very helpful. This way, there would be one tool that we could continue using. The data aspects of data security and data loss prevention could provide visibility which would be very useful. View full review »

We still need to understand what are the best practices which we need to implement. We also don't know how it will scale once we start putting more load on it. View full review »

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. I would like to see a more thorough QA process. We have had some difficulties from bugs in releases. I see more improvements needed from AWS than from Palo Alto on the VM-Series, namely a design centered on NGFW. View full review »

Director at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
There is work to be done on the integration side, as AWS doesn't integrate well with third-party firewalls. I would like to see AWS have more integration with Palo Alto from a routing standpoint, so it could become a routing egress without having to redesigning it. View full review »
