Palo Alto Networks

With our work force most remotely for the unforeseeable future this has been an extremely useful tool to manage all our remote VPN access and iOS devices in one place. Easy to install and our users have very little issues getting connected and staying connected. Certificates can be a little tricky sometimes but it's rarely an issue.

Pulse SDP is well suited in an environment where the majority of employees are working remotely or have extensive business travel. In today's environment where cybersecurity is of the utmost importance for all organizations, Pulse SDP provides a solid level of security for those remote employees or those traveling.

Cons

Palo Alto Networks

  • It has created another area for us to manage some of the internet traffic for our users. Sites being open on-site and not on remote access or vice versa.
  • In general, the certificates are easier to handle than while on Cisco solution, it is still a pain to get the remote device a cert in place if it has "broken."
  • We would like to lock in the ability of which gateway we use to connect to the network. While it's not been an issue for us we have seen some oddness when using a different gateway than the preferred one.

  • The central management tool is not mature.
  • The option to connect before logging in using Network Connect is EOL, and the alternative is not good enough currently (requires machine authentication).

      At Adecco, first and foremost, we have Pulse SDP easy to use for our employees. This is a critical factor for us because employees are spending much less time calling into support than engaged in high payoff activities. However, when I have called in for support, Pulse SDP has been responsive and effective.

      The F5 product was more complicated to manage and requires more time to get used to. Juniper VPN is simpler. F5 BIG-IP Access Policy Manager may be better if you need other side solutions like load balancing and GSLB. So, it really depends on your requirements.
