Pros and Cons

  • If you need to push a setting or config to multiple firewalls Panorama can do that flawlessly.
  • Panorama has its logging centralized and this makes it easy to locate and reviews logs compared to having to get logs from each device.
  • I love how the interface matches the interface on the firewall. This makes the learning curve less steep.
  • Adding new firewalls to Panorama is super easy and not complex. Panorama can push a lot of the config and settings so you don't have to manually do it.
  • Seems like it takes a minute or two to commit changes. In my option, it should take a second or two not 2 minutes.
  • It will time out and log you out unexpectedly. This can be irritating when you come back after a few minutes and have to log back in.

Pros and Cons

  • First, it has a very good signature-based Intrusion Detection System (IDS) that shows malicious inbound or outbound network packets. The classification for the critical threats is flawless.
  • It has a feature called "Wildfire" which act like an anti-virus and it reports any malware or malicious attachment that have been downloaded or sent through the network.
  • It needs improvement for the threats categorized as "high" severity. There are lot of false positives. Therefore finding real ones is hard in "high" category.
  • The threat/traffic view needs improvement. It needs at least a feature to sort based on columns. Downloading and parsing using Excel takes a lot of time.

Pros and Cons

  • Panorama is very useful in updating the software in bulk with a single click without any hassles.
  • It also provides us detailed reporting to check the validate the compliance status.
  • Panorama is used for logging service to collect logs from managed devices to solve your operational logging challenges.
  • Sometimes it lacks visibility for de-capsulated tunneled traffic. Here, we would like to see improvements.
  • It has few ACC customizations and collaboration improvements such as default tab, share tabs etc.
  • Granular change management for multi-admin teams is still a little confusing, it needs more simplicity and flexibility.

Pros and Cons

  • Quick searching and filtering of logs from all your firewalls simultaneously, which helps track down the traffic of interest on any device.
  • The interface matches the PANOS interface on the firewall, so you don't have to re-learn a whole new way of doing things (there is an additional tab for Panorama settings).
  • Supports multiple authentication methods, including SAML and RADIUS, so it's possible to secure it with multi-factor authentication.
  • Stackable templates make it easy to re-use common device configurations on multiple firewalls, and hierarchical device groups make it easy to apply policies to select or all devices at once.
  • Applied filters on various sections are persistent between administrative sessions.
  • Has a tendency to log out management sessions unexpectedly.
  • Occasionally requires multiple login attempts to load administrative session.
  • Occasionally, pushing PANOS updates to firewalls from Panorama simply fails.

Pros and Cons

  • Being able to create common rules that can be maintained on multiple firewalls is very beneficial to our management of the different functional needs of the firewalls.
  • Using templates to manage regional requirements is helpful for rolling out changes in the networking side, from user managemnet globally to SEIM/Syslog collection regionally, being able to stack templates helps deliver the necessary changes across multiple firewalls.
  • Panorama's Dashboard and ACC provides useful information that can be set to see All firewalls, or just certain groups of firewalls. Since each group of firewalls has different applications running through them, being able to isolate one group at a time helps identify if there are errant devices causing unexpected traffic, and what type of traffic it is.
  • The ability to push out OS updates could be improved in Panorama. It has the abilities, but the use is not intuitive, to the point that we generally connect directly to the firewalls to download the OS updates directly.
  • Scheduling. It would be nice to be able to schedule jobs to run at certain times. Pushing out updates, like OS updates mentioned above, can require significant bandwidth. So being able to schedule that work for hours that would not directly affect the users would be a welcome addition.
  • The list of devices in the Templates tabs should be sorted the same way that he devices are grouped in the Device Group tab, rather than just alphabetical. If there was a way to chose the order of the devices, maybe by tag, that would work as well.
