Overall Satisfaction with Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls - PA Series

We use Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls as our primary firewall and our VPN solution for the company. It is very easy to set up and the firewall itself proves to be very effective in managing traffic. They are an industry leader for Enterprise NGFW appliances with numerous security features to protect companies and their networks.
  • Very good security features including hardware-level antivirus and intrusion prevention.
  • Customizable firewall rules and NAT policies that will match any network's needs.
  • Great management interface.
  • Different size of appliances for different purposes/environments.
  • We have seen that occasionally the reporting feature can be buggy and that certain options might be missing from the menu in the report section. This seems to be a known bug and we have been working with PAN support to apply a hotfix patch to address the issue.
  • Technical support is excellent without a doubt, qualified support engineers and responsive. We had a few crises and managed to push through under pressure thanks to the tech support.
  • The ease of use was a strong selling point. The management console is very simple to use and we were up and running in a production environment very quickly without any issues.
  • I like the application awareness of the firewall. Really allows you to monitor what is going on and what users are doing.
The ease of use was a strong selling point. The management console is very simple to use.
Great product and great company to do business with. We are a long time customer and are currently using many of their security products. We find that they focus heavily on ease of use and making deployment as simple as possible which is always a plus for my organization.
