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.

This software is well suited for engineering firms where different staff are working on a same design or document file. And this software would only serve its full potential if used in a mid-size to large company. It would be less utilized in a small firm where file sharing can be done in a local server.

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.

  • Right now ProjectWise must be installed after installing all other software that would be integrated to it. This should be addressed so that any integrations can happen after the fact.
  • Integrations with more variety of file extensions
  • Easier user interface in navigation explorer

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.

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.

Vault is just for Autodesk files, but the check-out/check-in system is the same. ProjectWise covers more comprehensive scope of file extensions that can be used by companies of any business field. But it can also see improvements where replacing a file that is referenced by other files can be as simple as saving a file with a same name.

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.

  • In our work we often research back into old documents that we have done in the past. Looking up files using keywords makes this process much faster.
  • ProjectWise helps us archive our gargantuan amount of project documents in digital form, easy to access at anytime.
