Scenarios most suited - 1) All the Cyber Security focused development environments 2) Definitely a must for Financial Clients since it deals with live money transactions - Hence it is imperative to keep the Network and tech asset environment secure, and compliant to standards 3) IAM is another area where it plays an IMP part - For eg one of our healthcare clients where they wanted to restrict access 4) Dashboards are also great, we can share the results to GISO/CISO level folks - Custom dashboard feature

Finding specific Cloud Vendor specific Cloud resource configuration, tags, network information and etc. is fairly easy to do. Cloud alert capabilities are pretty good and with proper knowledge top notch alerts can be created. Only downside I can think of is ease of use.

  • Real-time supports would be much appreciated. At the moment they have a third-party ticketing support tool, which can be replaced with real-time support, which can be provided to the user at the time of the issue.
  • The user should be provided with all the learning material by the Palo Alto team at the time of license purchase. This would save a lot of users' time, which is taken up by research and finding the correct documents from the website.
  • Themes can be introduced in the feature set, which would help the user customize the software as per their needs.
