What is Palo Alto Networks Threat Prevention?

Threats do not discriminate between application delivery vectors, requiring an approach that has full visibility into all application traffic, including SSL encrypted content, with full user context. Threat Prevention leverages the visibility of our next-generation firewall to inspect all traffic, automatically preventing known threats, regardless of port, protocol or SSL encryption.

    Reliable with good IPS and helpful support
    Pros and Cons
    • "You can scale the product."
    • "The initial setup is complex."

    What is our primary use case?

    We implemented the IPS solution and the DNS sinkhole blocking. 

    What is most valuable?

    For us, the IPS is very valuable.

    It is stable and reliable.

    The solution has helpful support.

    You can scale the product.

    What needs improvement?

    The initial setup is complex. 

    We'd like more APIs to manage programmatically the IPS to orchestrate it and
    avoid logging into the graphical user interface console. We'd like to have some robots to manage the solution's tasks.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I've been using the solution for about three years.

    Find out what your peers are saying about Palo Alto Networks, Darktrace, Trend Micro and others in Intrusion Detection and Prevention Software (IDPS). Updated: July 2022.
    621,703 professionals have used our research since 2012.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    It's a stable solution. We've never had any issues with our environment. There are no bugs or glitches and it doesn't crash or freeze. 

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    We have about 30,000 servers using this solution. It's not for end-users; it's for computers, for servers. It can scale to meet your needs. 

    How are customer service and support?

    Technical support is good. We've been happy with them so far. 

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup was very complex as the solution does not have these APIs to facilitate the configuration. Therefore, we had to manage some scripts to perform the configuration.

    Our deployment took, approximately, eight months.

    What about the implementation team?

    We implemented the solution with the help of a reseller.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    We pay for licensing on a yearly basis. You simply need to pay the licensing fee and there are no extra costs. 

    What other advice do I have?

    We're a customer and end-user.

    It's a pretty good solution. After three years, we haven't had any issues or concerns with our environment. The advice I can give is to implement it and to test it, as it's a really good solution.

    I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

    Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

    The self-updating and self-alerting systems require very little management overhead
    Pros and Cons
    • "Edge protection is a valuable feature."
    • "The pricing has improved with the newer generation of their Firewalls, but the price could always be lower. In comparison with other solutions, I believe they're quite competitive."

    What is our primary use case?

    We primarily use this solution for general user security and protection. In our organization, there are around 250 users, using this solution.

    How has it helped my organization?

    Its simplified management interface, self-updating, and self-alerting systems require very little management overhead.

    What is most valuable?

    Edge protection is a valuable feature. Also, WildFire I think has been the most valuable active protection against a zero-day.

    It's also very intuitive and user-friendly.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using this solution for roughly five years.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    Both the scalability and stability of this solution are fine for our needs.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    The technical support is excellent; I would give them a nine out of ten — their response time could be better.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup was pretty straightforward. 

    What about the implementation team?

    We had an SE help us with the installation.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    The pricing has improved with the newer generation of their Firewalls, but the price could always be lower. In comparison with other solutions, I believe they're quite competitive.

    What other advice do I have?

    If you're going to use this solution, you should have a professional set it up for you.

    On a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of nine. They're cutting edge. They're one of the leaders in the industry, and they're continuously improving their product.

    Has a user friendly interface and is easy to configure
    Pros and Cons
    • "It's very easy to use and configure. What is nice about Palo Alto is that even if you don't understand how to use it, you can just click on upload and upload everything that needs to be blocked."
    • "The cost involves the price of the hardware, which is expensive. However, most of the Palo Alto solutions are expensive."

    What is our primary use case?

    We use it to upload, delete, and list what to publish on the net to block websites and even posts.

    Recently, I blocked Adobe Acrobat Reader. When you install it on your PC, sometimes it contacts the internet and opens some posts. Thus, it can be easily hacked by a user on the internet. When you browse for this kind of list, you can easily upload it on Palo Alto without any difficulty.

    What is most valuable?

    It's very easy to use and configure.

    What is nice about Palo Alto is that even if you don't understand how to use it, you can just click on upload and upload everything that needs to be blocked.

    It also has signature-based prevention.

    The interface is really user friendly. You can easily see what sites you have been blocking and their criticality. 

    You can also capture packets from this tool, which is really nice.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    The cost involves the price of the hardware, which is expensive. However, most of the Palo Alto solutions are expensive.

    These devices cost a lot here in Mauritius, for example, one device can cost approximately $4,000. The cost for the license would be in addition to this.

    What other advice do I have?

    I would rate this solution at ten on a scale from one to ten because I've never had any issues with it and have never been hacked.
