Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"AWS Firewall Manager isn't a separate solution when you create the virtual private cloud (VPC), so you can control the traffic through that security group."

More AWS Firewall Manager Pros →

"I like its flexibility.""The initial setup isn't very complex, it's user-friendly.""The solution, especially the latest versions, is very stable.""Technical support is helpful and knowledgeable.""Panorama enables you to provision all your firewalls and other things as a cluster. It is quite useful for that.""It is great that the records go back to 30 days.""Centralized firewall management and update management are the most valuable features.""It's great for creating signatures and activating activities."

More Palo Alto Networks Panorama Pros →

"I would like to see AWS add some UTM features to the firewall. It would also be great if AWS Firewall had native IPS/IDS. They have the separate IPS/IDS, GuardDuty."

More AWS Firewall Manager Cons →

"The solution's utilization of network ports makes things as complex as possible.""Instead of searching their knowledge base in their website, maybe they can interact with us in the user interface to explain things better.""As the cybersecurity threats have become more aggressive these days, Palo Alto Networks Panorama can still be improved, particularly on the security side, for example, more network management, and penetration test. Improving the security feature for internal endpoints is needed in the solution.""Palo Alto Networks Panorama has some bugs that could be fixed.""Price is probably one of the biggest things that we struggle with, specifically with Palo, and that's across their whole portfolio.""We found a vulnerability where when we have a low flow, like 2.7K, it is not getting fired by the threat prevention. That's something important to improve on. They should have a proxy or some solution to solve the issue. We also found some issues around decrypting the flow. When we have more flow than expected to decrypt, the performance goes down.""The price of Palo Alto Networks Panorama could be better.""The customer support needs to be better."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "The price of Panorama is expensive."
  • "The solution is priced well and there is a license for this solution that we pay annually for."
  • "We have a yearly license. The cost is not that high and not that cheap either."
  • "Sometimes the company prefers to give a license to test the product in our environment before we go to the customer. But the customer should buy his own license, and that's the system here. The system is different between one country and another. Some countries say that the IT solutions provider should provide the license."
  • "You can buy the hardware only and each box is not even $10,000. It's only $8,000 for the unit itself. However, then you are charged a three-year license at $81,000."
  • "The price of the licenses could be lower. Still, because we have Panorama with 25 firewalls, Palo Alto gives us a good discount."
  • "The pricing could be lower."
  • "It is pretty reasonable as compared to other companies."
