Cisco SD-WAN

Cisco SD-WAN has proven to be a very profitable and very proficient platform that is well suited for our organization. Apart from the less appropriation, the SD-WAN solution makes internet connections very protected and therefore, secure enough. It is also dependable by creating encrypted tunnels between every website in the SD-WAN for inter-branch and base office (headquarter) traffic. It takes beneficial aspects of SSL security enabled by the SaaS application for traffic going from the branch to the application.

Palo Alto Networks Prisma Access

Well Suited Scenario -
  1. while connecting to office resources , user needs to connect to Perimeter device and from there they can access respective resources. With in same country users can managed with little more latency however users who are far long or in other countries ? For those users Prisma is become as perfect solution.
  2. Customers who have already Panorama with multiple PA firewalls they can surely take advantages of Prisma Access solution.
Less Appropriate -
  1. Scenario where network latency for remote users does matter much for product impact.

Pros

Cisco SD-WAN

  • Before Cisco SD-WAN, our users even struggled to send emails with Microsoft 365
  • Cloud applications, such as SharePoint, were not taking a long time to load and made it impossible to collaborate
  • Streaming services--even though video streaming does not work at desired levels, music streaming started to work without interruption

  • Easily Onboarding Acquisition
  • Better logging service with Cortex Data Lake which gives proactively threat alerts.
  • Most of all functionality similar as Perimeter firewall like SSL decryption , DNS DLP security , Sandbox , SDWAN , QoS etc.

Cons

Cisco SD-WAN

  • The minimum subscription time is three years, which makes the initial investment of the projects more expensive.
  • The types of subscriptions that determine the accumulated bandwidth of the transport links generate a limitation to the additional solution that the hardware supports.
  • Access to the Vmanage administration console must be from a previously established IP address, which removes flexibility of access to the cloud.

Palo Alto Networks Prisma Access

  • Limited Free Service connection - Palo alto can provide more free service connections
  • Must to have Prisma Access - SMB customers who want to adopt Prisma Access for them purchasing Panorama license becomes a cost centric issue.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco SD-WAN

Cisco SD-WAN is the simplest to implement with graphical user interface full configuration. There [are] also many automated parts of [the] configuration, like tunnels configurations and routes propagation. Cisco also brings its SD-WAN solution as a complementary solution to users already using Cisco equipment like Meraki and Firepower firewalls. This could be an advantage also.

Return on Investment

Cisco SD-WAN

  • Very fast ROI - Primarily by switching existing circuits to direct internet (or reducing circuits and adding direct internet).
  • While saving money on circuits, the SD-WAN licensing is now another line item on operating expenses to keep track of.
  • SD-WAN licensing is a minimum 3-year contract. So not for short-term. However, licenses can be moved around between the hardware and purchased fairly quickly, so it's not like you will have a lot floating around on overhead.
