Palo Alto Networks WildFire

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.

Zscaler Internet Access

As far as content filtering goes, Zscaler has met all of our needs. We feel that is doing the job well but we also feel like we could get more out of it. The ability for a downloaded file to be ran in a sandbox before delivering to the use is an awesome feature. The end user gets frustrated that they have to wait up to 10 minutes to receive their download but from a security standpoint it is working well.

Zscaler Internet Access

  • Securing third party access is a bit complex to implement. These are our third party partners who require access to our data center on a temporary basis.
  • It is a bit of a learning curve to transform from the VPN and appliance architecture to this model.

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.

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.

While overall support was always nice and polite, most of the time it was hard to reach them and it took awhile for them to respond back in urgent cases. It was probably an isolated case but, still, it's hard to manage a tool without proper support from the vendor when in need.

We use both FireEye and WildFire - they are the same and different. No analysis has been done.

I have previously used Websense and Bluecoat, both with mixed results. Zscaler is the superior product if for no other reason that is far easier to deploy and manage

Return on Investment

Palo Alto Networks WildFire

  • Although expensive to implement correctly, seeing ROI for us is projected within 6 years. The added high end security appliances shows robust attention to confidential data we process.
  • This makes us more desirable to clients and helps with when reporting third party combat infiltration testing.
  • It's a hard pill to swallow the first year, however new jobs are quicker to be generated due to again the high security measures we implement.
