Prisma SaaS by Palo Alto Networks is stable, easy to integrate, easy to use, and very scalable. 

It has a very user-friendly interface, has a straightforward setup, and the remediation process is easy compared to other platforms. Moreover, it has good performance and technical support. In addition, Prisma has the ability to quarantine and clean a malware file very well, which is a great feature that provides a lot of security. Whatsmore is that the solution works with Oracle Cloud while other SaaS solutions aren’t always compatible. Compared to other solutions, Prisma SaaS is flexible. While Prisma SaaS has many good things going for it, its one major disappointment is that it does not support the reverse proxy type of integrations, which can be a deal-breaker for some people. Prisma SaaS also lacks a hybrid model.

Zscaler internet access has good VPN technology and the internet security it provides is by far its most valuable feature. Some of its other valuable features are that it is a lightweight solution, it is very easy to set up, configure, and maintain, and the protection is in the cloud. What I find to be most useful is that it delivers safe web access for employees that work remotely, and it also increases cybersecurity, making it efficient by saving a lot of time. The only thing that I don’t like about Zscaler is that there are a few new features that are not compatible with Azure Cloud. I wish they also had more video documentation and training materials available, but I think they plan to expand on that front soon.

Conclusion: After evaluating both Prisma SaaS by Palo Alto Networks as well as Zscaler internet access, I ultimately decided to go with Zscaler because Prisma SaaS wasn’t as feature-rich as I expected it to be, and Prisma SaaS was also the more pricey option.
