Overall Satisfaction with Palo Alto Panorama
We use Palo Alto Panorama to manage our firewall access for end-users. We control access to restricted sites and the VPN service. Through the Monitor tab, I am able to view the logs for URL filtering for specific users and see if users are being blocked in VPN due to a HIP Match issue. In the Objects tab, I am able to restrict or allow specific sites and domains based on URL categories.
- Web site access permissions
- VPN authentication protocols
- VMWare authentication
- Search filtering needs to be more user friendly
- It takes a long time for changes to be made and replicated to the individual sites
- Able to catch malicious activity before it reaches the network
- Able to control access to sites not needed for work activities such as Facebook
- Control the access to other sites like Indeed and permit access only to those who need it for their specific job
- Set specific parameters for VPN access and monitor when users do not meet those parameters
Palo Alto Panorama and Junos Space Security Director have many similar features but Palo Alto Panorama excels in almost all of them. The monitoring tools in Palo Alto Panorama are easy to use and give more in-depth insight into what is going on in your network. Palo Alto's security is ranked much higher and the Web Application Security is also superior to that of the Junos counterpart.

We control access to social media sites through groups. Restricted sites are easier to manage and control. I diagnose issues with VPN and VMWare authentication. When a user is unable to access the VPN due to an authentication error I can log into Palo Alto Panorama and see if they are blocked due to HIP match issues or Authentication Profile issues. If a site is being blocked on the network I can add the site to the allowed list for specific types of users, such as Internet Users or Trucking (groups set in AD). Alternatively, I can block specific sites and domains that are deemed inappropriate or not needed for work purposes.
