For SAAS it's not required but for most of IAAS and PAAS components Virtual network are required the deployment of storage account doesn't require virtual network .

Palo Alto Panorama

We have multiple internal and external firewalls at our headquarters as well as firewalls at our remote locations. Users are always needing to access services and systems at our headquarters and when they tell us they don't have access we can use Panorama to view the traffic and see where they are getting denied. Without Panorama we would need to log into each firewall and see if they are getting denied with Panorama we get an overview of was is happening and it's amazing.

  • Being able to create common rules that can be maintained on multiple firewalls is very beneficial to our management of the different functional needs of the firewalls.
  • Using templates to manage regional requirements is helpful for rolling out changes in the networking side, from user managemnet globally to SEIM/Syslog collection regionally, being able to stack templates helps deliver the necessary changes across multiple firewalls.
  • Panorama's Dashboard and ACC provides useful information that can be set to see All firewalls, or just certain groups of firewalls. Since each group of firewalls has different applications running through them, being able to isolate one group at a time helps identify if there are errant devices causing unexpected traffic, and what type of traffic it is.

Cons

Azure Virtual Network

  • Integration of Express Routes needs to be simplified
  • Endpoints Security has to be available in Vnet itself

Palo Alto Panorama

  • It needs improvement for the threats categorized as "high" severity. There are lot of false positives. Therefore finding real ones is hard in "high" category.
  • The threat/traffic view needs improvement. It needs at least a feature to sort based on columns. Downloading and parsing using Excel takes a lot of time.

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.

When you get help it is great. they have different service plans you need to know what plan you have and what kind of turn around you can expect. We have even had a local engineer to help us with questions and solutions. I feel the support team they have is very knowledgable and can help you out. Most of the time there is no need to escalate the issue.

[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

Azure Virtual Network

  • Deployment of Gateway needs to be faster as it takes a lot of time which is negative
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
