Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection

I think threat prevention on a certain level could be used in all Palo Alto deployments (even if just alerting without blocking).

Pros

Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection

  • The threat engine has constant updates for important threats.
  • Wildfire helps supplement the Threat engine to help protect against 0 day threats.
  • The way the threat engine can be added at different levels to different zones and policies helps to ensure business essential traffic can have policies that are tuned to ensure traffic will flow.

Cons

Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection

  • Visibility into signatures and how they function/what triggers them would be very beneficial.
  • Lacking customizability compared to other tools.
  • Inability to write custom signatures easily and for traffic with small (less than 8 bit) signatures.

Alternatives Considered

Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection

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

Return on Investment

Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection

  • New deployment hasn't been fully calculated yet.
  • With the addition of Panorama and central logging, event investigation has become more streamlined.
