Overall Satisfaction with Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection

We utilize almost all facets of the Threat Protection suite including File blocking, Data Filtering, URL filtering, Anti spyware and malware. We have adopted several iterations of these policies with exceptions as needed, but overall we encompassed one Security Profile Group that houses all the threat prevention features under 1 easy profile to attach as a default to new Security Policy rules.
  • Data filtering.
  • URL categorization.
  • File blocking.
  • Sometimes I struggle to find the deny or specific traffic log for file blocking profile under Unified logs.
  • Reporting around Threat Prevention suite could be much better.
  • Possibly a specific threat prevention search function that spans across of threat features.
  • URL categorization/filtering.
  • File blocking.
  • Data filtering.
  • Threat Protection adds a positive multi layered defense.
  • Reduces time to review and triage unwanted network connections by implementing Geo Blocking.
  • Ease of deploying a single Security Group Profile across multiple existing or new rules reduces management time.
Having used Palo Alto Firewalls for years, implementing threat protection was the next step in perimeter security. Works much better than the few competitors I have personally used. Frequent content updates occur which may impact some policy rules, but that is normal across most vendors.

Did Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection again?

Yes

Entire Threat Protection suite works very well together and is relatively easy to set up. Can get somewhat complicated once you have hundreds of Security policy rule and adding exception in the proper top down location. Using the Security Profile group feature is a nice way to group some or all of the threat prevention features under one profile to add to new rules vs. adding them individually.
