I work for a large computer software company.
I am currently researching Palo Alto Networks and its products. How do Palo Alto Networks' security features compare to other security vendors like Cisco?
Thank you for your help.

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!
