What is most valuable?

* App-ID * Easy migration * Credential-based attack prevention * PBF easily configured * Whole team can use the firewall and understand it

How has it helped my organization?

* Much more visibility during an attack lifecycle; found a lot of infected hosts and vulnerabilities.

What needs improvement?

The GUI is better in 8.0, but I still feel it lacks the fast response most of us desire. Logs are much quicker.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It IS a bit expensive, but I think you get what you pay for. Value is there.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We previously used legacy Cisco ASA. We switched because it was buggy and had no visibility; it was not easy for the rest of my team to use.

How has it helped my organization?

The cloud-based services are a nice feature.

I do not find it as secure as other solutions. Furthermore, the cloud-based solutions are still not legally available in countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Russia. Some countries do not allow the service according to country obligations.... more»

Which solutions did we use previously?

I have previous experience with FireEye and Symantec. I find that Symantec is a standalone on an enterprise level secure market, which I cannot say for WildFire.
