"It is great that the records go back to 30 days.""Centralized firewall management and update management are the most valuable features.""It's easy to deploy any software or policies.""It's great for creating signatures and activating activities.""Panorama enables you to provision all your firewalls and other things as a cluster. It is quite useful for that.""Variable creation and template stack functionalities make Palo Alto Networks Panorama a brilliant solution.

Cons
"The stability is so-so. There are always memory issues, but the solution is working great apart from that.""ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer can improve by having better monitoring of all features from firewalls. We are using Kibana in order to monitor parts that this solution does not record. For example, having more correlation and proactive monitoring in some activity or scenario."

More ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer Cons →

"I would like to see remote VPN, like the Cisco client.""Instead of searching their knowledge base in their website, maybe they can interact with us in the user interface to explain things better.""Price is probably one of the biggest things that we struggle with, specifically with Palo, and that's across their whole portfolio.""The configuration could be a bit better.""The solution could improve by having a true single pane of glass environment for unified management. At the present time, you still have to use three or four different solutions to bring everything together.""The central firewall management could be better.""The product does need a bit of configuration. It's not quite ready to go out of the box.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer is less expensive than some of their competitors, such as Cisco. The price is one of the reasons why we use ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer."
  • More ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "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."
