Pros and Cons

  • Integration with Palo Alto solutions (very easy and one-click).
  • Zero day detection.
  • AutoFocus integration.
  • Leveraging the Palo Alto threat prevention features.
  • API integration with different solutions (many of them already built-in configurations).
  • Unit 42 threat research team behind the WildFire.
  • Integration with 3rd-party feeds.
  • Upcoming solutions and acquisitions of Palo Alto are integrated and built-in capability of WF usage.
  • Local WF appliance is lacking in term of functionality like no bare metal analysis in local solution.
  • No new features coming to local WF appliances.
  • No built-in integration with GlobalProtect Agent.
  • Cloud WF does not have the option for specific regions to be used (compliance).
  • Cloud side does not have alarming option for [degraded] performance.
  • Lack of forensics (needs additional product or integration).

WildFire burning through the wire

Pros and Cons

  • WF helps identify potentially malicious files across a large range of types and operating system executable files.
  • WF + Traps helps catch things from a client that may traverse encrypted channels or that don't pass through a firewall.
  • WF Appliance helps address compliance concerns allowing sandboxing of files on site.
  • As all sand boxes, WF needs to stay on top of malware sandbox evasion techniques.
  • The initial management and setup of WF could be better.
  • Have had some bugs with WF code.

Pros and Cons

  • This is could base and easily manageable for our collocation. While working within the could can review in live time potential treats that it has reported from other devices.
  • Worked very well with existing Palo Alto devices.
  • Another huge plus is the simplicity of managing and ease of scalability.
  • Its cost is competitive with similar/like products available.
  • Although it supports third party NGFW's I haven't tried and heard mixed reviews. I'd stay within the Palo Alto family of device.
  • Support could become cumbersome if not identified from the beginning. Even though it's purchased through a vendor which could offer support ultimately having support from Palo Alto would be ideal.

Palo Alto Wildfire - premium product but at a premium price

Pros and Cons

  • Quick definition downloads and updates. Version 7.1 can do one every 5 minutes. Zero day protection within 5 minutes is a huge plus.
  • Quick manual or automatic examination of files. Palo Alto's wildfire site supports API uploads or manual uploads that provide more detailed information than a Virustotal, for example.
  • Would be helpful if they supported more file types.
  • Would be helpful if they supported uploads of larger files.
