Which product do you recommend and why: Palo Alto Networks VM-Series vs Cisco Firepower Threat Defense Virtual (FTDv)?


In my organization (10K+ employees) we have had Cisco products for decades and now we started exploring whether Palo Alto Networks VM-Series is a good alternative (vs Cisco FTDv) that can leverage our security posture. 

Dear professionals, please share your technical recommendations!

hello. Capability is on par between the two vendors. Your best bet is to think about integration and how the FW will work with other tools/processes in your environment. Thanks
