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

We are using Palo Alto Firewall because of the advance features they have & we are using content filtering & application filtering features for preventing malicious traffic & unauthorize access. The IDS/IPS & Advance malware protection feature provides a deep scanning feature & also provides sandboxing for advance level deep filtering of packets.
  • Application filtering
  • Content filtering
  • Advance malware protection
  • Deep Scanning
  • Sandboxing
  • Easy to Configure through GUI
  • Anti-Spoofing & Anti-Spam
  • It's complicated to implement it into existing network
  • Packet flow is not easy to understand for the beginners
  • Expensive as compare to other available solutions
  • Less documentation available
  • GUI is really easy to Manage
  • Security is highly improved so we don't need to worry about attacks & data breach
  • Cost is justified according to features they are providing
We are using Cisco ASA before in our environment but when it comes to deep scanning & layer 7 security it doesn't have that capability. After using Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall we are using sandboxing & advance malware protection that provides high-level end-user security. Also after implementing it we can easily monitor user-level traffic.
