Palo Alto Networks WildFire Pros

Using WildFire has reduced the number of viruses and the amount of malware that comes into our system, which means that I don't have to rely on the end-users to identify it.

They have many different options with Palo Alto WildFire and the set-up is quick. If you have all the details in hand, it does not take more than 15 minutes to deploy a firewall.

Being an application-based firewall, this is one of the critical focus factors along with the threat prevention services it provides.
It is stable and pretty much scalable.

The way that the solution quickly updates to adjust to threats is the solution's most valuable aspect. When there's a security attack, within five minutes, all Wildfire subscribers have access to updates so that all systems will be safe. Its threat prevention is way better than other vendor products.

It helps us when segmenting and securing the network and all sort of technologies, all sort of next generation needs. It's next generation phases of firewall like anti-virus, sandboxing, wifi, and VPN.

The most valuable feature is the Automatic Verdict, to recognize whether something is a threat, or not.

It would be nice if there was an easier way to install and deploy it, such as through the inclusion of wizards.

There are certain changes that I was expecting in the previous version, and I hope that they are soon fixed. All of the problems that I have faced so far have been resolved.

As a firewall and 360 degrees of security, there needs to be more maturity.
The initial setup was complex.

The size of Palo Alto's cloud is big but it could be easier to use from a product management perspective.

Other vendors have some sort of bandwidth management built into the firewall itself and Palo Alto is missing that.

I think it would be nice for Palo Alto to work without the connection to the cloud. It is 100% powerful when connected to the cloud. But, if you disconnect from the cloud, you only get 40-50% power.
