Palo Alto NG Firewalls Scalability

I don't think that product is really scalable. You have to either replace it with a higher version or use what you have. I think that's the only way. You cannot add something to increase its capacity, so you have to replace the current equipment to a new version or a new, higher version. View full review »

In terms of scalability, no security products are scalable to upgrade. Not ever. While assuming you are dealing with scalability, you have room to increase or to have room to expand, but actually, you don't because there is limited support. Even if you bring in the highest model, it's still limited. View full review »

For our current size and our projected growth, it is sufficient. We are expecting to grow to about 1000 users. This is the type of bandwidth we need, based on our typical usage. The specific model we bought can scale up to that number. We built in that room for growth. In addition, we can expand the scope not just as a firewall but also by doing some sandboxing and through integration with endpoint security solutions. View full review »

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. You can't just upgrade the parts with a software key or with adding additional hardware. You need to replace the entire box. It's not scalable. View full review »

The solution is scalable because they are now using the next generation security network. They are integrating with endpoint protection. Palo Alto now has traps, so they integrate their traps and the next generation with the cloud. So it is scalable. View full review »

I think that the product is very customizable. If you don't need to protect a lot of assets, you can buy a small firewall at a low price for small needs, but if you need you can buy a bigger solution with more features. Scalability is very easy with Palo Alto Networks. View full review »

Network Engineer at Acliv Technologies Pvt Ltd
There are no scalability issues to date. We have about 2,500 users behind the firewall using this solution. I think we don't have any requirement to increase usage. Currently, we have around 2,500 users, but if this increases, we may need a new requirement. We hired one or two people to maintain the solution. View full review »

The scalability is not so good. Because if you want to upgrade, you have to change the service completely. We have about 2000 users. View full review »
