Palo Alto's Vulnerability Protection (IPS) has a good rating from NSS Labs and allows the use of Suricata and Snort signatures. The PAN-OS 10 release includes local machine learning that protects against zero-day attacks.

Pricewise Cisco. But PA has better rating.

In my Oppinion, Palo Alto is better than Cisco. You can refer in NSS Lab 2018 & 2019 DCSG-SVM, NSS-labs-NGIPS-Comparative-Report, and some report from Forester about Zero Trust Architecture, and Gartner SASE report to discus more advantages of Palo Alto in the future

Hello Peers,  I work at a large IT company. We are looking to use Palo Alto NG Firewalls and need to decide which model to use. Which model would you recommend for 1200 users? Why do you recommend this specific model? Thank you for your help.

Hi peers, A week ago I lost my data through the malware from which I failed to recover as the file got corrupted.  Now, I want to work with a firewall and so am looking for suggestions on whether I should purchase Cisco Firepower or Sophos XG. Which one is a good match for an SMB? What would you recommend?

I prefer Sophos. I find it easy to use and it has better features on malware and threat management.

I recommend Sophos XGS firewall. It will offer the best solution for malware protection.  Also, I recomend Sophos CIXA with XDR (Sophos Endpoint), so you can use Syncronized Security.
