Overall Satisfaction with Palo Alto Panorama

It is used across the whole organization. Panorama can help in managing the administration of a large number of Palo Alto firewalls. It is a centralized interface for Palo alto firewalls, Global protect, cloud services, and logging service instead of logging into each device. There are device groups and templates that can ease administrative efforts.

Panorama helps to manage many Palo Alto firewalls in one interface. You will find device groups and templates that reduce administrative efforts. Policies are easily configured and deployed with a great web filtering module. Furthermore, you can have either a hardware or a software VM to choose from.
  • Very good user interface and user experience which helps apply the configuration easily.
  • The portal is helps you apply configuration easily, by applying your configuration and settings smoothly.
  • Addition of several firewalls with easy steps.
  • Great support and response from the vendor
  • The dual WAN functionality doesn't exist in it.
  • Better coding in order to make the portal faster
  • Hard to apply the templates, too many steps
  • It is very slow applying changes once you have committed the changes on its web interface. It could take a nearly 30 seconds until the change has been actually applied on the device, needs some software enhancements. It sometimes crashes for unknown reasons due to bugs.
  • According to its high performance with all security features enabled, its price is the best in the market, so it is a good bargain for the customer
  • Best pricing for all security features to be enabled on it.
  • Support and Account Managers are very responsive to critical issues that could lead customer losses
  • I don't see any negative impacts on this solution, but there is always room for improvement
Compared to other vendors, this is the most accurate next-generation firewall. Their sizing values in their data sheets is very accurate compared to other vendors, so little re-testing and validation is done on our side.

With all their security features enabled, the performance is great.
You can do anything via the GUI without going to the CLI. High real time security as every five minutes, it updates the list of phishing websites. High protection as the firewall communicates with the cloud, a machine running artificial intelligence helps to detect malware or other threats.
The support team has great communication skills. They respond to your request with courtesy and they never break their promises in their next update. They also follow up with you on a timely basis.
