As far as policy management goes, AlgoSec is the best one available in the market and no competing vendors like tufin and FireMon are any close.

Palo Alto Panorama

We control access to social media sites through groups. Restricted sites are easier to manage and control. I diagnose issues with VPN and VMWare authentication. When a user is unable to access the VPN due to an authentication error I can log into Palo Alto Panorama and see if they are blocked due to HIP match issues or Authentication Profile issues. If a site is being blocked on the network I can add the site to the allowed list for specific types of users, such as Internet Users or Trucking (groups set in AD). Alternatively, I can block specific sites and domains that are deemed inappropriate or not needed for work purposes.

Pros

AlgoSec

  • Complete network policy visibility.
  • Firewalls rule optimization.
  • Automatically generate the reports for all leading industry regulations.

Palo Alto Panorama

  • If you need to push a setting or config to multiple firewalls Panorama can do that flawlessly.
  • Panorama has its logging centralized and this makes it easy to locate and reviews logs compared to having to get logs from each device.
  • I love how the interface matches the interface on the firewall. This makes the learning curve less steep.
  • Adding new firewalls to Panorama is super easy and not complex. Panorama can push a lot of the config and settings so you don't have to manually do it.

Cons

AlgoSec

  • Enhanced integration via API (typically, this is only known by few Algosec users)
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Palo Alto Panorama

  • The ability to push out OS updates could be improved in Panorama. It has the abilities, but the use is not intuitive, to the point that we generally connect directly to the firewalls to download the OS updates directly.
  • Scheduling. It would be nice to be able to schedule jobs to run at certain times. Pushing out updates, like OS updates mentioned above, can require significant bandwidth. So being able to schedule that work for hours that would not directly affect the users would be a welcome addition.
  • The list of devices in the Templates tabs should be sorted the same way that he devices are grouped in the Device Group tab, rather than just alphabetical. If there was a way to chose the order of the devices, maybe by tag, that would work as well.

Panorama has given us much more than we expected and the support for the product, by Palo Alto Networks has been great. We would like to see some improvements that I mentioned in another review, like scheduling changes, but overall Panorama has provided a very capable product and we are very happy with it.

You can do anything via the GUI without going to the CLI. High real time security as every five minutes, it updates the list of phishing websites. High protection as the firewall communicates with the cloud, a machine running artificial intelligence helps to detect malware or other threats.

Palo Alto has a very nice customer support. People are very nice and were quick to reply, whenever we had an issue with the subscription or the blacklist tool. There is also a great deal of information on their website that covers each and every detail about the uses and the threat signatures. The community keeps on updating their information very frequently. Small issues are easily solved from the documentation, and for other issues, the customer support service is always present. However, on Fridays it becomes a little delayed as per my observation.

Alternatives Considered

AlgoSec

Algosec has multi vendor support including cisco aci, nsx, aws and azure security groups. While most other vendors are lacking in the spectrum of the vendors. The ROI is best on this product.
Ankur Gupta | TrustRadius Reviewer

Palo Alto Panorama

[Palo Alto] Panorama stacks up really good against Defense Orchestrator. The interface of the Panorama makes it much easier to navigate through and allows for easier management of the Palo Alto Devices. The Cisco Orchestrator lacks in that department while Palo Alto Panorama is loaded with plenty of features.

Return on Investment

AlgoSec

  • By generating automatic reports based upon regulatory industries, AlgoSec reduces the audit preparation efforts and costs.
  • Simulate the traffic query to see where traffic is blocked and automate the policy creation.
  • Firewall rules optimization and cleanup.
  • Identify and Mitigate risks and associate them to business applications.

Palo Alto Panorama

  • At a previous company, I deployed Palo Alto firewalls to a data center, and 12 branch locations. This allowed us to replace MPLS links with IPSec tunnels between the sites. This resulted in significantly more throughput and soft savings of increased productivity. However, the estimated net of $220,000 in hard savings over five years is what is most impressive. I could not have effectively managed all those devices without Palo Alto Panorama.
