FortiAnalyzer

FortiAnalyzer is a must have when you administer multiple FortiGate firewalls in a defense in depth enterprise environment. Total visibility can be achieved across multiple physical and virtual firewalls. Complete analysis of your threat landscape is possible along with real time detection, compliance reporting, and wholistic firewall rule analysis and reporting. Eliminating shadow rules, tuning unnecessarily permissive rules, automation and other analysis are built in to this easy to deploy software.

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.

Cons

FortiAnalyzer

  • Administrative Domains and Software Versions are difficult to maintain

  • Administrative Domains must be well architected from the beginning

Palo Alto Networks WildFire

  • WildFire, like other sandboxes, has to stay up with malware sandbox evasion techniques, which necessitates larger file size limits.
  • More file formats should be able to be submitted and scanned by WildFire, which needs improved initial administration and setup.
  • It's quite pricey, and there's no warning choice for performance on the cloud.

FortiAnalyzer is easy to deploy are ready to use right out of the box. The user interface is intuitive and the reporting engine is very customizable however most of the 'canned' reports are usable right away. It is easy to add firewalls under management and event correlation happens immediately. FortiAnalyzer is a great log aggregator for all of your firewalls and then upload meaningful data to a SEIM.

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.

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

FortiAnalyzer

FortiAnalyzer is significantly cheaper and a better value for the money especially if you have FortiGate firewalls in the datacenter or in the cloud. FortiAnalyzer manages physical, virtual, and cloud firewalls in a single pane of glass providing a wholistic enterprise view of your security landscape. Compliance reporting comes built-in with the most popular reports ready at a click of a button. FortiAnalyzer is a great aggregation point before uploading logs to a SEIM / SOC tool.

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.
