Palo Alto Networks WildFire Primary Use Case

Information Technology Manager at a construction company with 51-200 employees
We have the Palo Alto Firewall sitting on the edge and everything that comes through it is analyzed. Even if anything comes through via email, it is forwarded to the WildFire service, which then opens up email attachments to see if they do any damage to the system. If it reports back that the attachment should not be forwarded then it keeps it out. WildFire has discovered a lot of stuff that our other anti-spam tool did not, so it has been quite good.

We had two 800-Series Palo Alto Firewalls, but as they reached end-of-life, we began researching alternatives. Ultimately, we chose to switch to Cisco Firepower, so we no longer use WildFire. View full review »
