If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Prisma SaaS by Palo Alto Networks , what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
Ultimately, Palo Alto is a very advanced firewall. The firewall uses activation awareness. This firewall can easily identify what applications are running behind the network. This is a good solution to use. I would rate this solution as eight out of ten.
They're unique in that they're watching our network. They're just constantly updating and patching, watching for potential threats. As long as they keep on doing that but allow us time to understand what they're updating before they do it, it would help out. You get what you pay for. They're the best in class. I would rate it a nine out of ten.
This is a fairly good product if you are looking for something to protect data at rest. There are alternatives, like Oracle and McAfee, that also provide similar solutions, but you should do a POC with them first. In fact, you should always start with a POC because everyone has different needs. If you take the training that is available then you will be able to handle the maintenance yourself. There can be challenges when there are compliance issues, like somebody putting a file into quarantine. It will have to be taken out manually, and if the user is untrained then they will require technical help for this. I would rate this solution eight and a half out of ten.
