The Palo Alto VM-Series is nice because I can move the firewalls easily. For instance, we once went from one cloud provider to another. The nice thing about that situation was that I could just move the VMs almost with a click of a button. It was really convenient and easy and an option that every firewall will not give you.

What I like about the VM-Series is that you can launch them in a very short time. You don't have to wait for the hardware to route for them to be staged and installed. From that perspective, it's easy to launch and it's good because it is more scalable. The product is quite responsive. View full review »

All of the next-generation features are valuable and set Palo Alto apart from other firewalls. The application filtering, or AppiID, and URL filtering are good. The interface with Panorama makes it very easy to use. View full review »

In Palo Alto the most important feature is the App-ID. It's the biggest selling point in my opinion. Another important application feature is the Content-ID. The solution offers great templates. Overall, the solution has a lot of great features on offer. View full review »

Palo Alto Networks VM-Series is very easy to use. It takes maybe one week to learn how it works, but the suite itself is very flexible. After you install it, it's very easy to use because of the intuitive web interface. It's great for me at the moment. I have all I need. All the traffic is very well filtered, and I believe it's the future of the firewall. View full review »

The VM series has an advantage over the physical version because we are able to change the sources that the machine has, such as the amount of available RAM. With a physical machine, you cannot the resources without adding something to the machine. The management can be done from a single console window. View full review »
