I am trying to pick between Palo Alto 5060 or Fortigate FG-1500D. Any input will be much appreciated.

We have over 100 branches with non-PA, and non-FG firewalls and we are trying to pick 5 of those to act as a gateway to tunnel all branches of traffic to those firewalls.

Hi Everyone, I am currently sourcing for an alternative firewall solution to replace the existing solution being used by my organization on commercial considerations and Palo-Alto has been recommended. I have done a lot of research but I also need to compliment that with expert opinions.
