"This solution is user-friendly. It is centrally managed and provides role optimization, without the need for additional tools.""The product can scale.""Compared to all of the other firewall vendors, Palo Alto is very secure.""I like its flexibility.""The management and the deployment features are most valuable. We can easily deploy and manage the devices. We can do fast deployments without moving from our office and by just providing a short description to the end-user about how to install the physical device.""From a configuration point of view, when we are implementing it for large organizations where the customer owns a hundred firewalls, it's just easy to manage them all at one central location.""Variable creation and template stack functionalities make Palo Alto Networks Panorama a brilliant solution. It is a completely scalable system, with good technical support.""The telemetry visibility is really good as well as the automated workflows for creating policies. The overall solution is quite intuitive to use."

Cons
"Cisco Defense Orchestrator can improve by providing more support for third-party security components.""They can centralize all products and provide a correlation about an incident and the response. They can also provide an on-premises solution. Currently, Cisco Defense Orchestrator is just for cloud deployments, not for on-premises deployments. Customers have to manage it on the cloud. We are based in Vietnam, and most of the customers here prefer to have on-premises deployments. Customers, especially from banking and government sectors, do not prefer to do anything on the cloud. Some of the small enterprises use the cloud.""They need to work on the user interface. It needs to be improved to make it more user-friendly."

More Cisco Defense Orchestrator Cons →

"Its UI and usability could be improved. The way the UI looks could be improved to make it a little bit more intuitive. Other than that, it is a pretty simple product.""It could be easier to manage. In the future, it should be much easier because it's not very easy to manage. So in the next release, I think it should be much easier to manage, especially in the first configuration. It could also be more stable.""The product could use some method of allowing for more customization and open integration with other controls.""The configuration could be a bit better.""It communicates with remote devices, and sometimes, there is a little bit of delay during its communication with remote devices. There should be real-time communication or updates from the manager to devices.""The product could offer more integration with other solutions.""It is very hard to understand the platform. It is not easy and user-friendly. You need a lot of experience to use Panorama. It is very complex, and you must know exactly what to do. I would like to have a more user-friendly product. FortiManager is comparatively very easy to use. It would be good if Panorama improves in terms of user-friendliness. It is also harder to use than Palo Alto Firewalls.""Aside from pricing, I don't have any issues with Panorama."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "If you compare to what is available on the market, they are in the same range with respect to pricing."
  • "I work with a lot of clients, and the price or value of the Cisco Defense Orchestrator can vary from one client to another. If you have a lot of Cisco solutions, the price of the Cisco Defense Orchestrator is justified. Whereas if you have some security components from other vendors, such as Check Point or Palo Alto. This solution would be a pretty expensive proposition considering that they don't integrate with them well."
  • More Cisco Defense Orchestrator Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The pricing model is reasonable for this class of solutions."
  • "Palo Alto is expensive and there are many cheaper firewalls, but they do not work as well."
  • "It is not a cheap solution."
  • "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."
