We did a head-to-head comparison and live tested 2 pretty beefy models from each company.  Palo absolutely blew Cisco out of the water.  There is a major difference in a company focused on firewalls first and then migrating into complementary security technologies to integrate them to make a comprehensive security ecosystem vs another company saying they are doing the same thing, but actually just piecemealing things together.  Palo has some issues, too.  But their product offerings are top-notch, their roadmap is cutting edge, and overall they are building a security ecosystem that actually functions and isn't mainly marketing and sales material.  It works!
