Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable feature of this solution is how it keeps up-to-date with viruses.""The solution is completely integrated with all the other Palo Alto products. I think that it is the best part for endpoint protection. The firewall features include URL and DNS filtering, threat protection, and antivirus.""The solution has plenty of features.""The most valuable feature is the improved security that it offers.""The most valuable feature is the cloud-based protection against zero-day malware attacks.""The most valuable features of this solution are sandbox capabilities.""For example, if a security Intel threat talks about an IOC. We can then go to our MSP and say, "Is there a signature for this particular type of malware that just came out?" And if they'll say yes, then we'll say, "Okay. Does it apply to these firewalls? And have we seen any hits on it?" There's absolutely value in it.""The scalability is acceptable."

Cons
"The automation and responsiveness need improvement.""It's not really their problem, it's a problem across the board. There will always be problems with interrupted traffic. We have to set it up where we're playing a middle man game where we're stripping it out, looking at it, and then putting it back together and sending it on its way. That requires CPU cycles. And there's some overhead with that.""Management and web filtering can be improved. There should also be better reporting, particularly around web filtering.""In the future, I would like to see more automation in the reporting.""The deployment model could be better.""The cost of the solution is excessively high.""It would be nice if there was an easier way to install and deploy it, such as through the inclusion of wizards.""When you contact support, there is no guarantee that they will be available to help you tackle the issue that you are facing."
