Overall Satisfaction with Palo Alto Networks Traps

We recently replaced Kaspersky with Traps. Great next gen product! Easy to use, easy to manage and fantastic protection. It has saved us from a few users who like to on spam already and we were able to get our whitelist fleshed out in no time for those pesky one-off and in-house built apps.


  • Tracking file behavior
  • low impact monitoring
  • easy to use console


  • To be honest, at this time I don't have any suggestions for you guys. Sales team was great, tech team is great, product has been great. I like the interface.. so no complaints or suggestions yet!
  • We have some older machines and the constant scanning of files can slow things down even further. Traps no longer scans everything but monitors file behavior, therefore increasing overall productivity.
  • Traps will quarantine a file it sees as malicious, whether it is or not. I've had to do a couple of file restorals because of this. That's one negative I suppose..
Traps is the slickest interface, easy to use and intuitive rule making, and the rest just didn't quite stack up to the performance level of Traps. McAfee and Kaspersky just hog processor and RAM power. I didn't like the interface and functionality of SentinelOne as much as Traps. Palo Alto really put a lot of time into the development of this software, and had some of the founding fathers of IT Security heading the development process. Can't beat that.
Great for any enterprise solution that wants a next-gen, low impact solution with great protection. If your current product is not up to snuff in any fashion, you should look into Traps. Price point is good and the product is truly outstanding in my opinion.
