Next-Generation Firewalls - PA Series

The firewalls we purchased are excellent. They are very fast as well. This is really important as we want to collect as much data as possible without the end user being impacted by the performance. We are using a 100Mbps fiber connection to the Internet, so we want to get all the speed we can push through these devices. Having the fault tolerance option in the lower-end models would be a nice feature to add.

  • We have seen that occasionally the reporting feature can be buggy and that certain options might be missing from the menu in the report section. This seems to be a known bug and we have been working with PAN support to apply a hotfix patch to address the issue.

This firewall is the most comprehensive firewall with the easiest interface I've ever used. The interface is also very intuitive and it's easy to figure out what features will or will not do if they're turned on or off. The logging and reporting features are also great. Easy to understand and to generate.
