I found Palo Alto NG firewalls more intuitive compared to other products. I value the capability to identify a cloud solution.

I like to install Palo Alto mainly on the data center side to have visibility into all VLANs. That gives full visibility into the core.

One of the things I really like about it is that we have the same features and functions available on the entry-level device (PA-220), as do large corporations with much more costly appliances.

Palo Alto NG Firewalls Cons

I think they need to have a proper hardware version for a smaller enterprise. We had to go to a very high-end version which is very expensive. If we chose the lower-end version, it would not meet our goals. A middle-end is missing in its portfolio.

The advanced manual protection needs to be improved a little bit because they used to make a cloud manual analysis for the cloud.

The scalability compared to other products is not good. You need to change the box whenever you want your number of connection sessions to increase.

I'm thinking about a new feature. They have decryption. It's a good idea to use decryption on Palo Alto. It would be good if they had offloading of the traffic, and if they could decrypt the traffic and offload it. Like, for example, ASM on our site. We have an SSL decryption to offload the traffic. We could use that on Palo Alto.

Overall it is good. It is reliable and easy to understand. However, the monitoring feature could be improved.
