Palo Alto Networks
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.

Trellix (FireEye + McAfee)
McAfee Network Security does do what it promises, and it integrates nicely with other McAfee services my work computer has. Sometimes I do feel though that McAfee does hinder your computer/internet performance, but maybe it's a trade-off that's worth it. I do wish they would refine their threat detection so some websites that I don't think are harmful and want to visit for work purposes aren't blocked. There's been times where I google a question and a website has the answer but McAfee will block it. If you're in a position at a financial company like me, where you're dealing with sensitive/private information, it's important to have this type of software to protect data.

Cons
Palo Alto Networks
  • 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.

  • Sometimes can slow internet/computer speed
  • At times can stop software downloads that I don't deem harmful and need to download
  • May also block a website that isn't harmful that I wanted to visit because it has helpful information

Usability
Palo Alto Networks
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.

Support Rating
Palo Alto Networks
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.

Palo Alto Networks
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.

Return on Investment
Palo Alto Networks
  • As we all know the product of Palo Alto is little bit expensive but its performance is far better than any of its competitors. So as I previously mentioned, Palo Alto should not sell WildFire Licence seperately.
  • If the firewall is internet facing then only we should buy WildFire Licence.
  • WildFire Licence is not necessary for internal firewall. If you are planning to buy a firewall for internal network where your traffic is not going towards internet so no need to buy WildFire Licence.
