We have multiple internal and external firewalls at our headquarters as well as firewalls at our remote locations. Users are always needing to access services and systems at our headquarters and when they tell us they don't have access we can use Panorama to view the traffic and see where they are getting denied. Without Panorama we would need to log into each firewall and see if they are getting denied with Panorama we get an overview of was is happening and it's amazing.

I think Palo Alto Panorama is well suited for any deployment greater than one Palo Alto gateway. The more devices you manage, the greater the benefit of using Palo Alto Panorama is. We only have two gateways, along with two user ID agents and several hundred terminal server agents, but it still makes their management much more manageable. It doesn't add to the complexity or require substantial resources, so I can't think of a reason not to use it.

Palo Alto Panorama is well suited for any scale industry. We use it to manage several units of our organization. Some units have low data flow and some like our medicine and media departments have high data flow. Thus it is highly scalable. It has a very easy interface for regular users. It doesn't require programming skills or sound technical background to use. It has a GUI that supports all kinds of operations through the interface. It also has text-based data fields that can be used by people having networking and programming background to reduce clicks. Therefore it is suited for organizations having both technical and non-technical staff. It is hard to find scenarios where it is not well suited. But yes, since it has all the functionalities integrated into it, buying Panorama for a small organization solely for the sake of firewall (if all other defense tools are already there like IDS, screening firewall) could be an expensive and redundant purchase.

We can always choose Panorama for device monitoring and resource utilization on firewalls, which helps to assess the impact of substantial policy changes and operational activities, benchmark across locations with similar traffic profiles, and in proactively tracking device component health. It is less appropriate where a lesser number of firewalls is in place (between 2-5) and where the organization has a limited number of users and applications.

Palo Alto Panorama is well suited if you have more than a couple of Palo Alto firewalls, and if you have a desire to see logs from all your firewalls simultaneously. If a user wants to easily manage configurations without jumping between so many boxes, or if you want to easily manage firewall backups, then Palo Alto Panorama is a must-have, no-brainer decision. I can't imagine managing multiple firewalls without it.

Palo Alto Panorama does well in our environment, where we have specific requirements for different groups of firewalls. Whether by region and/or function, overall Panorama does a very good job of being able to leverage commonalities and push changes to multiple groups of firewalls.Panorama is not a monitoring system. It does monitor things like sync status, and whether the devices are accessible, but it cannot be confused with an active monitoring system, so it is not an all in one solution. Also, as mentioned in my cons, there is no capability for scheduling jobs, to work around bandwidth limitations.
