If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Prisma Access by Palo Alto Networks , what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
I will give this solution an eight out of ten rating because theoretically, I looked at a lot of other products but Palo Alto seems to be covering all aspects and I'm sure the competitors like to tell everybody they have more features, but I've not experienced it yet.
I would recommend the solution. The solution really depends on your budget, of course. If you have a really low budget it's not a low budget solution, so it can really depend on the budget you have. But if you have a budget for enterprise or best of firewalls I think you should take this solution into consideration. I would rate this solution at 8.5 or 9 out of 10. No product, of course, is totally perfect and a ten is something that I don't think that exists. I think maybe it needs a bit more ease of how applications and dependencies run. Because sometimes you push a firewall rule and you get lots of dependencies so that could be a more manageable thing. Extra guidance in using applications and things like that would be helpful.
We had a very good experience with their solutions, especially with their endpoint protections and the next-generation firewalls. We are a local distributor in Palo Alto here in Egypt. So we propose this technology to our customers and our partners here in Egypt. Palo Alto offers very good technology and hardware. Its very good in this category of solution. You have options of providing or proposing to a customer a small box, or sometimes a mid range. It depends on the model and the deployment. I would rate this solution 8 out of 10.
