Its ability to react to cyber data attacks is awesome. That is pretty much the use of it. What blows your mind is the ability to access your assets remotely and see what is actually going on with them. You can not only see them in a console. You can also react very rapidly to your assets that are compromised.

One of the main benefits of the solution is its intelligence to correlate the events into an incident.

The user interface of the solution is sophisticated and straightforward.

I like the centralized console and the predictive analysis it does of malware. It is very stable and also scalable.

The solution doesn't need a high level of technical training.

Stability is one of the features we like the most.

The most valuable feature is that you can select remote access of any machine for sandboxing.

Stability is a primary factor, and then there's the ease of distribution and policy management.

The behavior-based detection feature is valuable.

The ability to kind of stitch everything together and see the actual complete picture is very useful. I guess you'd call it a playbook. Some people call it the forensics analysis of what was happening on particular endpoints when they detected some malicious behavior, and what transpired before that to cause that. It is also very user friendly.

The way they have done everything and integrated all the solutions that they've purchased over the years to make it a very seamless, effective product is very good. One thing about Palo Alto is that they take the products or services that they purchase and make them seamless for the end user as compared to some companies that purchase other companies and then just kind of have their products off to the side or keep different interfaces. Palo Alto doesn't do that.

The protection offered by this product is good, as is the endpoint reporting.

It can automatically correlate events and logs, which is very helpful for an IT administrator. It can correlate different kinds of malware activities over a network, agent, or host system. You do not need to do it manually. It is a good feature.

It is also a user-friendly solution. We have deployed it on the cloud because our space does not provide any flexibility for on-premises deployment, but Palo Alto has added some flexibility to install it on-premises. It must be like the same Cortex XDR agent for all the VPN services, web filtering services, and everything else.

Being a cloud solution it is very flexible in serving internal and external connections and a broad range of devices.

It collects and caches and the knowledge of machine learning from different customers to take to the cloud. It makes it better to use for everybody. It allows for quick learning and updates and can, therefore, offer zero-day malware security. This sharing of metadata helps make the solution very safe.

WildFire AI is the best option for this product.

It's very stable. I've never experienced downtime for the ASM console or ASM core.

The one feature of Palo Alto Networks Traps that our organization finds most valuable is the App ID service.

The most valuable features are the fact that it was running in the background and it would intercept any weird stuff, and the fact that it would send things directly to the cloud for sandboxing. It's quite practical.

After deploying Traps, we saw the performance of the network improve by 65 to 70 percent.

It blocks malicious files. It prevents attacks. It doesn't require many updates, it's a very light application.

If the user leaves our premises or network, Palo Alto Traps will still be on that endpoint and will still apply our policies.

The multi-layered approach to the product gives you confidence that it will stop exploits, ransomware, worms, or viruses from compromising endpoints, essentially providing peace of mind.

We've had a significant increase in blocking with a decrease in false positives, because it's looking at how the files work, not just a list of files that it's been told to look for.

Traps has drastically reduced our endpoint attack surface via advanced detection capabilities, sandboxing of never before seen programs, and by drastically limiting where executables can launch in the first place.
