A wonderful product that can do so much

What do you like best?

Palo Alto firewalls are hands down, the best layer 7 firewalls on the market. Their number of signatures and supported services grow every day. In addition to the capabilities of the firewall, management of the firewall is a breeze either via the built-in GUI or PANORAMA.

What do you dislike?

I believe the only complaint I have is that you cannot do an import from the device once you start managing it via PANORAMA. At times, it may be necessary to do a change local to a firewall and re-importing that device to PANORAMA is a pain.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can't go wrong with the Palo Alto, but you can with just about every other firewall on the market.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As stated before, this is hands down the best layer 7 firewall on the market. As an MSSP, we have been able to offer our customers so much more granular control over what applications are allowed through their network, and not just by port number or basic filtering. These firewalls can even look inside SSH traffic and allow normal SSH connections but block SSH tunneling.

Full featured VPN solution with Palo Alto Functionality

What do you like best?

The integration with the Palo Alto next-gen firrwall adds great additional protection for the traffic passing through the VPN tunnels

What do you dislike?

The gain all functionality, you must purchase a subscription. It should really just be all part of the system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great solution, but Palo Alto Firewalls are expensive. (GP is a free function, but extra bells and whistles cost more).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Connectivity for remote users as well as our visiting Nurse clinicians.

This replaced Cisco 3030 concentrator which had extremely limited logging.

What Other IT Security solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Quick and Easy VPN for Business

What do you like best?

Easy to connect, runs very quietly in the background. I haven't noticed any significant loss of speed while accessing files remotely vs some other systems i've used.

What do you dislike?

Have had a update kick out my login information, not overly intuitive to find the correct account information to log back in.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great solution for a set-and-forget VPN, great for users that may be less technical.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Straight forward VPN usage, primarily for accessing files from the internal sever for sales activities while on the road. Used to also be tied out our old CRM, but no longer an issue there after we migrated to a web-based service.

Global protect as Primary VPN client

What do you like best?

Lightweight client, works well with MFA (easily implemented), provides good insight through logging.

What do you dislike?

Implementation of group/individual access rights/ACL as opposed to per domain rights/ACL

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

VPN from outside to inside and the req. for MFA were both met with GP. Additionally, it was a cost saver for us as we could decomm our old VPN solution and use GP as it was part of our licensing scheme when we purchased our Palo Hardware.

straight-forward client software

What do you like best?

As an end user of this client it's simplicity is the best part. Add the easy access to connection details and troubleshooting info and this client is a win.

What do you dislike?

Some prompting for 2 factor auth can be a bit confusing, however the wording of this may be configurable by an admin (not sure).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use GlobalProtect for VPN access to our corporate network. This allows us to securely work remotely.
