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!

Great for large enterprises 10k users or more and as part of defense in depth. Medium and small business you are better off looking for a cheaper UTM solution that does it all in one. It comes down to cost, are you willing to fund the cost of breaking out IPS functionality or moving towards a unified solution?

Trend Micro TippingPoint Threat Protection System (TPS)

  • Tipping point had a very nice GUI interface that sat on top of snort rules. It was easy to access, had nice customization of dashboards and output to syslog for SIEM solutions.
  • It was easy to configure rule sets, allow groups or singular allow/blocks or white-listing.
  • Security rule sets could be tweaked up or down and allow/drops signatures could be configured to help increase performance.

Cons

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.

  • Biggest qualms I had with TippingPoint was that it was just a tad on the expensive side for what you get. Nowadays everything has gone UTM in firewalls and they do it all including IPS as part of the basic functionality so really, TP is losing a massive market share.
  • Don't see a future in the roadmap with so many other vendors getting onto the "unified" wagon and adding IPS as part of their service and at a cheaper price.

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

Return on Investment

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)

  • Negative cash flow, positive addition to our defense in depth strategy at one of the largest healthcare organizations in Georgia (at that time).
