Appgate
It is best suited for larger companies with lots of remote workers that need complex access management. We've barely scratched the surface on what Appgate can do via its API.

Palo Alto Networks
Depending on the complexity of your equipment, devices, the network you are with, the size of your company, or the budget you are willing to pay, you should consider buying Prisma. I have in mind that it is a tool to make the leap to extra security for your devices; it is a complex tool that cannot be learned in a single day. Without a doubt, I would recommend her to a company that has a proven track record and knows what it wants.

Cons
Appgate
  • Live logging in the client. Currently you have to "download" the logs into a zip file and then open that zipfile to look at the logs. There's no logfile to tail or watch.
  • Load balancing between controllers could be better. Currently relies on round robin DNS and sometimes a browser will pick a different IP than previous and you'll get a big "LOST CONNECTION TO CONTROLLER" message.

Palo Alto Networks
  • It lags a bit on new features
  • It is best used with an entire Palo Alto environment

The company has been supportive overall of our needs and desired features. I have not personally called the support services, but I've heard no direct complaints either.

The existing system was FortiGate. The management of the system was a hassle. Because IT personnel had to manually create VPN accounts, user passwords were known to who created them and the end user did not have a way to change them. This created a security issue in the event an IT engineer left the company.

The management of connections is much more seamless with the Palo tool. AnyConnect was always a nightmare to get in and manage individual connections to what can and cannot be accessed based on IP addresses. We ended going with the newer methodology of remote access so that our users would be authenticated prior to entering login credentials.
