    • Control access to critical enterprise resources by business role, device type, and location, so policy changes can be made without redesigning the network.
    • Easily manage access control and segmentation while maintaining compliance.
    • Create and manage policies in an easy-to-use matrix.
    • Reduce the need for costly network re-architecture by automating firewall rules and access control list (ACL) administration.

    We control access to social media sites through groups. Restricted sites are easier to manage and control. I diagnose issues with VPN and VMWare authentication. When a user is unable to access the VPN due to an authentication error I can log into Palo Alto Panorama and see if they are blocked due to HIP match issues or Authentication Profile issues. If a site is being blocked on the network I can add the site to the allowed list for specific types of users, such as Internet Users or Trucking (groups set in AD). Alternatively, I can block specific sites and domains that are deemed inappropriate or not needed for work purposes.

    Pros

    Cisco TrustSec

    • Reduce operational expenses by simplifying network segmentation and defining security groups based on business roles, not IP addresses.
    • Limit the impact of a data breach by quickly isolating and containing threats using technology already in your network.

    • If you need to push a setting or config to multiple firewalls Panorama can do that flawlessly.
    • Panorama has its logging centralized and this makes it easy to locate and reviews logs compared to having to get logs from each device.
    • I love how the interface matches the interface on the firewall. This makes the learning curve less steep.
    • Adding new firewalls to Panorama is super easy and not complex. Panorama can push a lot of the config and settings so you don't have to manually do it.

    • Help and solutions if needed, support

    Palo Alto Panorama

    • The ability to push out OS updates could be improved in Panorama. It has the abilities, but the use is not intuitive, to the point that we generally connect directly to the firewalls to download the OS updates directly.
    • Scheduling. It would be nice to be able to schedule jobs to run at certain times. Pushing out updates, like OS updates mentioned above, can require significant bandwidth. So being able to schedule that work for hours that would not directly affect the users would be a welcome addition.
    • The list of devices in the Templates tabs should be sorted the same way that he devices are grouped in the Device Group tab, rather than just alphabetical. If there was a way to chose the order of the devices, maybe by tag, that would work as well.

    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.

    Palo Alto has a very nice customer support. People are very nice and were quick to reply, whenever we had an issue with the subscription or the blacklist tool. There is also a great deal of information on their website that covers each and every detail about the uses and the threat signatures. The community keeps on updating their information very frequently. Small issues are easily solved from the documentation, and for other issues, the customer support service is always present. However, on Fridays it becomes a little delayed as per my observation.

    [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

    Cisco TrustSec

    • Reduction in IT operational costs
    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.
