    Cyberoam

    Our organization found that Cyberoam is a cost-effective solution compared to other vendors. Cyberoam was having issues with SSO for Web Filtering. For, web filtering and application blocking, Cyberoam does not contain enough signatures or data so we can not achieve the goal of all of the sites that need to be blocked. Cyberoam is great because of its ease of use feature.

    Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection

    Palo Alto NTP is an appropriate suite of protection for any enterprise environment or anyone that truly needs some serious perimeter protection in a one-stop, all-in-one unit. There are no modules or add-ons or clunky interfaces to deal with it; everything works out of one management plane, licensing, implementation, monitoring. updating, etc. As a network admin, that is immensely valuable to me. Additionally, I get real-time reporting on all the stuff NTP is catching, and it is nothing to shirk at. The real value in NTP comes in only after you begin doing SSL-decryption, however, to truly inspect the traffic. Short of that, you are just seeing a bunch of encrypted data and the NTP suite of tools isn't going to avail you. NTP plus decryption, though, is invaluable!

    Cons

    Cyberoam

    • Without mentioning an alternative brand, there is another leading company who has updated with firewall UI quite a bit. They offer an expanded line-up to meet a wider array of needs including specific appliances for web caching, proxy servers, and other products that have the same and familiar UI across the products. Each of the products does have some overlap so that customers can choose the right appliance for their use case.
    • After being acquired by Sophos, we saw our year-over-year costs escalate significantly since our original maintenance contract. They should consider revisiting the pricing, especially for education.
    • They should consider a current market analysis and see how the market is changing and adapting with other lower cost appliances for their product line up.

    Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection

    • Sometimes I struggle to find the deny or specific traffic log for file blocking profile under Unified logs.
    • Reporting around Threat Prevention suite could be much better.
    • Possibly a specific threat prevention search function that spans across of threat features.

    Cyberoam

    The main factor is cost, as we are a startup organization. That's the main reason we choose Cyberoam stacks up against other network security services.

    Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection

    It is comparable but not as robust as other stand alone IPS/IDS.

    Return on Investment

    Cyberoam

    • Considerable change was noted in the utilization of administrators after switching from the software firewall.
    • It is relatively better priced when compared to fortigate.
    • Better log handling after the switch.

    Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection

    • We have various compliance standards we have to meet and the Palo Alto with its Networks Threat Protection suite has checked off pretty much all the boxes we needed and at a price point that couldn't be easily beat for comparable features, throughput, etc.
    • IT/Network staff has saved a A LOT of time using this platform for protection (coming from an ASA)
