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?

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

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

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.
