What is most valuable?

It's a monster, it's got so many beautiful features. We do deal with other firewalls and we've got a better idea of what other firewalls' capabilities are. In any comparison with the Palo Alto, I liked the quality of service on the applications that you can control the amount of bandwidth an application is allowed to consume. The best feature is the quality of the application quality of service.

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

The pricing and the licensing are pretty competitive at this stage. As a reseller, I would like to see the price come down a little bit so I can compete better against other firewalls because we do that all the time. Especially on these smaller firewalls and so on, we need to be a bit more competitive. Palo Alto is a company that focuses more on the high endS, high-speed class type of massive… more»

What other advice do I have?

It's a brilliant product, we periodically look at several other firewalls to stay on top of their capabilities and so on, and it's the best bang for your buck that you can get. Some of the other firewalls are starting to catch up. I implemented a baby, which could be regarded as a baby Palo Alto firewall. We pushed through in a single day with everything switched on, all the capabilities switched… more»

What is most valuable?

This solution has more than just the threat prevention by itself. It's also a Firewall and many other components. The most valuable features are the simplicity, transparency, and overall ease of management.

What needs improvement?

The price of licenses should be lowered to make it less costly to scale our solution. I would like to see consolidated licensing for on-premises solutions. This would give us all of the features available for the one box.

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

If you want to have all of the good features then you have to pay extra for licensing.

What other advice do I have?

Security in business is an important issue. There is a difference between the quote and the end price of the end product. Some vendors are impressed with the numbers they see on paper, then they start to use it and compare it and assess the ratio between the quote, security, and final price of the… more»

We take licensing on a yearly basis. Palo Alto provides a straightforward cost structure on the annual plan.

How has it helped my organization?

There have been updates to the solution recently that have ramped up protection. Before this, we had a lot of hacks on the network, specifically in the cloud environment. After the proper implementation of that product, we've not had one… more»

What needs improvement?

The solution needs to improve Reverse DNS functionalities. Right now, when you check the IP address, it tells all. It assumes that that IP address is locally available on the inside. When the request is going back to me it's supposed to do… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We've previously used Cisco, Salesforce, and Fortinet. We last used Salesforce, and we mainly switched due to the cost of the solution.

What is most valuable?

The application control and vulnerability protection are the most valuable features.

What needs improvement?

The IPS can be improved on the solution. The itineration, for example. Also, if additional features, like SD Wan, etc. can be added. This would be helpful. Other additional features that could be added include Individual Traps. In terms of enhancement for overall protection, we would like more Traps… more»

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

Compared to other security offerings, Palo Alto is very expensive. Palo Alto also doesn't offer many discounts. They may discount as much as 15%. However, in comparison, Cisco can give a discount of up to 85%.

What other advice do I have?

We work with the public and private cloud as well as the on-premises deployment models. Our role is to implement security solutions at our customer's premises. The deployment depends on the infrastructure. I would rate the solution seven out of ten. As a next-generation IPS, it's a very good… more»

The most valuable feature of Palo Alto Threat Prevention for our company is the next generation firewall.

What needs improvement?

It's not so easy to set up a test environment because it's not so easy to get the test license. The vendor only gives you 90 days for a test license; it's a tough license to get.

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

The pricing is a bit higher than the competition, but it's okay. The cost seems cheaper than Cisco's Firepower.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We do have other solutions that we run in parallel, but it isn't like we had one solution and then we switched to Palo Alto.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. The solution is very good, especially compared to other solutions. I would rate it nine out of ten. It also offers re-instruction detection and prevention software, which we also use in conjunction with the Threat Prevention solution.

What is most valuable?

One to three years.

I think the stability is better than Fortinet or Check Point

Palo Alto Threat Prevention Questions

What is Palo Alto Threat Prevention?

Threats do not discriminate between application delivery vectors, requiring an approach that has full visibility into all application traffic, including SSL encrypted content, with full user context. Threat Prevention leverages the visibility of our next-generation firewall to inspect all traffic, automatically preventing known threats, regardless of port, protocol or SSL encryption.
