    Palo Alto Networks WildFire

    Palo Alto Networks Wildfire is well suited for pretty much anywhere that you need the latest and greatest network security. It is extremely good at protecting you from the latest malware threats that might pose a potential problem for your network/endpoints. We've been very please since we installed it and I would say cost of the Palo Altos is the only drawback. If money were no object I'd go with a Palo Alto with Wildfire every time. But unfortunately in some smaller branches it just doesn't make financial sense.

    Palo Alto Networks WildFire

    • This is could base and easily manageable for our collocation. While working within the could can review in live time potential treats that it has reported from other devices.
    • Worked very well with existing Palo Alto devices.
    • Another huge plus is the simplicity of managing and ease of scalability.
    • Its cost is competitive with similar/like products available.

    Cons

    Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

    • HTTPS Inspection -- The firewall has troubles re-packaging the packet in a way that some websites are able to interpret correctly
    • Support -- Even getting support directly from Check Point isn't the easiest of experiences. They are more concerned about how fast they can close a ticket out, rather than fixing the problem.
    • Custom reports -- Custom reporting is extremely limited

    Palo Alto Networks WildFire

    • WildFire, like other sandboxes, has to stay up with malware sandbox evasion techniques, which necessitates larger file size limits.
    • More file formats should be able to be submitted and scanned by WildFire, which needs improved initial administration and setup.
    • It's quite pricey, and there's no warning choice for performance on the cloud.

    Easy to use and works well. For the most part it's set it and forget it, but there's also some flexibility for high security environments and those with extra privacy concerns.

    Check Point has a variety of support options that can be used to optimize your investment in the product. Companies with a larger information security and certified checkpoint engineer employee base can benefit from a standard SLA, while companies with a smaller security engineering footprint or more critical implementations can opt for premium, elite or diamond packages that even include the ability to provide on-site engineers for major security incidents. Check Point PRO support also provides the ability to outsource maintenance concerns by automating case creation and follow up when application components fail.

    PAN support is very good. You can get the reasonable and timely support on any conditions. When the product is already integrated with the PAN firewalls, you can choose the severity levels based on the effect. The customer service/TAC is very helpful, they even have additional recommendations of advises for product usability. Local partners are also assisting the cases and give their expertise.

    Alternatives Considered

    Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

    In a heterogeneous environment, we wanted to keep multiple vendors for multiple purposes. CP was found very good in handling basic Next generation firewalls features along with handling of VPNs.

    Palo Alto Networks WildFire

    We wanted a single device to handle numerous jobs, such as antivirus, antimalware, vulnerability detection, url filtering, etc. Palo Alto provides this, while TippingPoint IPS is a more dedicated product. Caveat: I used TippingPoint over 5 years ago, so things may have changed.

    Return on Investment

    Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

    • Although there are better alternatives out there, Check Point delivers results for the price we paid for the system.
    • Since implementation, we have not have any major issues with the product, minor issues were resolved in a timely fashion.
    • Check Point currently fulfills our need for an outside facing firewall, when our organization grows larger, we will be looking at higher level enterprise solutions.

    Palo Alto Networks WildFire
