Palo Alto has a good product and end-user experience. It's great. They can maybe add more processing power to their hardware. That's it. Sometimes it's stuck and you need to restart it. They have been adding a lot of things, so we need to upgrade for the new features. View full review »

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 can offload the traffic. Like, for example, SSL Offloading on F5. They have an SSL decryption to offload the traffic. View full review »

The manufacturer can improve the product by improving the configuration. Some of the menus are difficult to navigate when trying to find particular features. It is not entirely intuitive or convenient. You might need to configure a feature in one menu and next you need to go to another tab and configure another part of the feature in another tab. It's not very user-friendly in that way. On the other hand, it's still more user-friendly than using the console. But this is certainly one feature they can improve. View full review »
The initial configuration is complicated to set up. You really have to know what you're doing. I attribute that to all of the features and functions that are built into the product. Luckily, Palo Alto has a great support site and you can find contractors who are knowledgeable in the technology. View full review »

Overall it is good. It is reliable and easy to understand. However, the monitoring feature could be improved. They have many solutions already. I don't think I have seen any missing features. Every device has different functions, but as a firewall, this solution has a lot. View full review »

The only thing that is a little strange is in Policy-Based Forwarding. When you delete and add a new rule, because of the one hundred rule limit, if the new rule has an ID that is greater than one hundred, even though you have fewer than that, it will not work. The same thing happens when you are renaming a rule. The new rule will have a new ID, so it is possible for it to be greater than one hundred. This can be easily fixed by using one command from CLI, but you have to be aware of it. View full review »
Senior Technical Consultant at Exclusive GRP
Most customers ask about the choice of features. It's limited. It's not arranged well for users. Also, customers don't want to buy extra things for extra capabilities. I would like to implement individual profiles for each user. Capability, in general, is limited. View full review »

The solution needs some management tool enhancements. It could also use more reporting tools. And if the solution could enhance the VPN capabilities, that would be good. View full review »

Palo Alto NG firewalls can be improved in support of finance and banking. We need better affiliations for profiling the user. The product has some delay in the maintenance. They have to find some solution to make updates quicker. View full review »
