Avast Software

The scenario that Avast is great would be for large companies, where it works through homeoffice. Avast would be a bad idea for the educational institution, that is, a place where it will be directed to an underage audience, but I believe that Avast is on its way to becoming a global use system, so in the future it can be used in scenarios.

Palo Alto Networks

PaloAlto VM-200 is a virtualized firewall with high processing power and network edge protection. The great advantage is being able to implement in a VMware environment without worrying about hardware, rack space, physical network connections and others. It can be easily managed via the web and remotely to create protection, access and reporting rules. The VM-200 firewall can be used by any company, small or large because it has several models available according to the real needs of each one.

      Alternatives Considered

      Avast Software

      In my institution we didn't choose Avast, as they see the best for the team, that is, in this case I didn't have access to the other Avast. But in this case, I can pass on my experience with the Avast that I use. It is great, but it is necessary to improve in several aspects, such as the structure.

      Palo Alto Networks

      The Palo Alto seemed like a more mature product, with better online documentation and support. Based on previous support cases with both companies, we felt that we could get support from Palo Alto much quicker than with Fortinet when we badly needed it. Palo Alto was also easier for our existing engineers to get to grips with, since they had prior experience

      Palo Alto Networks

      • ROI has been achieved quickly through lack of security incidents.
      • Inline filtering happens at line rate, unline Sourcefire from Cisco.
      • Great incentives from PAN to switch made a difference in the choice to change.
