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.

Pros

Check Point Quantum Smart-1

  • Centralized Database
  • Detailed and indexed logging
  • Securely connects to each device

Palo Alto Panorama

  • 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

Check Point Quantum Smart-1

  • Not many
  • Expensive though comparatively lately these devices have stayed fairly consistent while other vendors have increased greatly and are catching up.
  • Support is limited, though this can be an advantage because of the security.

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.

We have selected Panorama because it is the one which could only provide us management and control of PA firewalls. It would be very difficult to replace this with another solution due to the features provided and benefits no other vendor can provide under one console with complete satisfaction and stability.

Return on Investment

Check Point Quantum Smart-1

  • Hardware is very solid so time for maintenance is extremely limited.
  • Patching is limited due to the strength of the code releases also time for maintenance is extremely limited
  • Annually reoccurring costs for licenses can be expensive

  • 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.
