Cloudflare

In my opinion, Cloudflare is well suited in all conditions when you need a managed DNS manager. It solves the problem with DNS Not Resolve when we often create a domain/subdomain (a software house would be like this), so we can deploy our apps as soon as possible to the client.

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.

Pros

Cloudflare

  • Security: Cloudflare keeps our website safe from DDoS attacks and other malicious traffic.
  • CDN: Cloudflare caches our website content, increasing our website's reliability and reducing server load. This saves on bandwidth costs from web servers.
  • Registrar: We can migrate domains to Cloudflare, though they don't currently allow the purchase of new domain names. The benefit of this is cheaper renewal fees and fewer systems involved in managing our domains.

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

Cloudflare

  • There is a huge jump in price between the mid-tier and enterprise solutions which is hard to justify for smaller businesses, or companies owning many small businesses.
  • It is difficult to convert from a CNAME installation back to a DNS based one
  • Setting up page-level caching with web workers is counterintuitive for simple websites

Palo Alto Networks WildFire

  • Local WF appliance is lacking in term of functionality like no bare metal analysis in local solution.
  • No new features coming to local WF appliances.
  • No built-in integration with GlobalProtect Agent.
  • Cloud WF does not have the option for specific regions to be used (compliance).
  • Cloud side does not have alarming option for [degraded] performance.
  • Lack of forensics (needs additional product or integration).

It works very well and takes care of protecting us from threats new and well-known. It's been a game changer in terms of threat detection & prevention.

While there are some parts of the service that can be tricky to implement if you have a very custom site, like holepunching for cache, for the most part, the service works very well out of the box and is easy to use

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.

We rarely have to call in, most issues are user error. When we do have an issue we can hop on chat or the forum to figure out why something is not working as it should. We do see the occasional issue when a hosting account is upgraded, you have to make sure you reset the DNS to the new hosting account, IP address tend to change

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

Cloudflare

CloudFlare has Incapsula beat in terms of ease of use and features for their lower level plans. Incapsula only allows API use on their Enterprise plan where-as CloudFlare allows it on all plans. Both great options, but CloudFlare is by far my preferred service.

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

Cloudflare

  • The specific ROI impact for the products we use from Cloudflare is hardly directly measurable, however the costs of suffering an attack for not having DDoS protection are exponentially higher.
  • Since the implementation of a CDN, we have seen our users' stay time increased by more than 30% in the last year.
  • The impact of using Cloudflare compared to the previous provider of the same services has generated us small financial savings, by having the same service for a lower cost.

Palo Alto Networks WildFire

  • Unknown file analysis helps with identifying malware that may not have a current signature.
  • Additional visibility into files transferred across networks.
