I would recommend this solution. It's stable and doesn't have many bugs. I would rate it an eight out of ten. In order to make it a ten, they should improve their technical support.

For those who want a next-gen firewall that's easy to configure and easy to operate, I think you should go for Palo Alto. Palo Alto is a bit pricy compared to different models. Customers try to compare the price between other solutions, like Fortinet, Cisco, and Checkpoint. In the next release, I would like for Palo Alto to work on email protection. I would rate it a ten out of ten.

We use both the cloud and on-premises deployment models. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

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 end product. It is important to consider the people who will maintain the solution. For example, if you don't have a large team in your organization, then one person is tasked with several duties, as opposed to having several departments with equal responsibilities. These are all things to consider when it comes to security. Sometimes, when you have more than one security product running, they fight with each other and it can make things difficult. In the case of this solution, things have been very smooth. So far, there have been no security issues and we are absolutely happy with Palo Alto Networks. It is easy to test out a trial version, but there is a problem with that. In my experience, after paying for the solution, it takes time to get to know it. There are complex things that may take half a year to understand how they work. In some cases, it is simple testing at the beginning, but over time you might find problems. With Palo Alto, you can ask for extended trial licenses, which is not something that you get from a lot of vendors. I have spent a lot of time in IT and I know that there is no such thing as an absolutely perfect solution. This one is easy to use and works well in our organization, but it might not be as suited to another organization. This is a product that I recommend, although it depends on the environment. Every product has pros and cons. Good planning and good testing is the best way to choose the product that best suits you. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

On a scale of one to ten, I rate this solution a nine. In the next version, I would like to see a drop in price and more stability.

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 firewall. I would recommend it.

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.

I would rate Palo Alto Threat Prevention a nine out of ten overall. I would prefer better mail security features.

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 on, we pushed through 4.3 terabytes of data per day. Which is phenomenal for such a baby, little firewall, with all the capabilities switched on, it's absolutely mind-boggling that it handled that, and it did. It was at a university that we implemented it. The advice that I would give is to partner with somebody that has the necessary skills to implement it. Buy from somebody that has proven skills to implement the product because if you don't have a partner to implement the product, that knows the product, and is qualified, it's pretty useless buying the product. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
