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.

It is stable and pretty much scalable.

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.

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

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.
