Threat management. That is very important, obviously. There have been a lot of press about hacking, virus vulnerabilities, the cron bug, etc. It is very important that we detect this stuff as soon as it happens, so we can implement measures... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We now know a lot more detail about what our users are doing on the network. Whereas before, we did not have an idea of certain things they were accessing, websites they were going to, and what vulnerabilities were being potentially... more»

What needs improvement?

The interface, maybe. It is all Java-based. 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... more»

What is most valuable?

It has one of the best WebUIs that I have used, because at a glance looks simple, but offers us a lot of options to secure all the traffic that is passing through the device (or all traffic that the user decides to pass through). Besides, the... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Well, I work as a security consultant, so one of my functions is to help and provide to the end users with recommendations about technologies or process to secure their network. So, one of my customer decide to migrate from TMG/UMG to Palo... more»

What do you think of Palo Alto Networks WildFire?

Improvements to My Organization This product/feature is an enhancement to traditional company/corporate AV and VP solutions, not a replacement. As such, it strengthens existing protections and provides significant visibility into files and applications that are moving through the company's systems. • Valuable Features Detailed reporting on analysis of content. The inspections are easily applied to security policy profiles and profile groups, and may be assigned on a per-rule basis. • Use of Solution One to three years. • Stability Issues No stability issues. • Scalability Issues No scalability issues. • Customer Service and Technical Support I have never accessed PAN (Palo Alto Networks) technical support regarding this feature. • Previous Solutions This is...

What do you think of Palo Alto Networks WildFire?

Valuable Features Dynamic analysis. • Improvements to My Organization WildFire has been instrumental in blocking a number of new threats, before common desktop anti-virus tools were able to detect them. When Wannacry first came out, wildfire was detecting it and dropping incoming threats within seconds. We were dropping over 10,000 files per day with no additional firewall load at all. • Room for Improvement I am very happy with WildFire and can see no obvious areas of improvement at this point. • Use of Solution We have been using this solution for over four years. • Deployment Issues There were no issues with deployment. The configuration is very simple. • Stability Issues This product is rock solid in terms of stability. • Scalability Issues ...

I am trying to pick between Palo Alto 5060 or Fortigate FG-1500D. Any input will be much appreciated. We have over 100 branches with non-PA, and non-FG firewalls and we are trying to pick 5 of those to act as a gateway to tunnel all branches of traffic to those firewalls.

Which is the best and why? Comparisons would be appreciated.
