It prevents data loss and business disruption

  • January 14, 2019
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

We use it to protect applications and data on AWS.
How has it helped my organization?
Embedding it into my application development lifecycle prevents data loss and business disruption, allowing the adoption to operate at the speed of my AWS Cloud.
What is most valuable?
It prevents data loss and business disruption.
What needs improvement?
It can definitely improve on the performance.
I would like more scalability included on the next release.
For how long have I used the solution?
One to three years.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
It has a good performance which helps you with the stability of your virtual environment.
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
It has to be more scalable for the deployment of VMs on the cloud.
What about the implementation team?
You have to be an expert administrator of a virtual environment to know how to integrate it with your AWS environment.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?
Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace is a secure way to purchase this solution. Our organization chose to procure this solution via the AWS Marketplace because we have clients who were interested in the solution. Also, for out proof of concept, we decided to purchase it.
The pricing and licensing of this product on AWS should be from $1.28/hr or $4,500.00/yr. Then, it would be a good price for the performance that it delivers.
What other advice do I have?
It solves several challenges protecting your AWS workloads with good security features, delivering superior visibility, control, and threat prevention at the application level when compared to other cloud-oriented security solutions.

AWS has improved our agility to apply firewall rules because everything is based in the cloud

  • December 12, 2018
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

We use it for firewall purposes.
How has it helped my organization?
We use it mostly for the firewall and its ability to work in AWS. That is why we like it.
What is most valuable?
AWS has improved our agility to apply firewall rules. It has reduced the amount of time that it takes to apply firewall rules because everything is based in the cloud. It helps us to bring agility to the project teams when applying them.
What needs improvement?
We still need to understand what are the best practices which we need to implement.
We also don't know how it will scale once we start putting more load on it.
For how long have I used the solution?
One to three years.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
We like its stability.
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
We are happy with the scalability.
We just started migrating to the cloud. Thus, we are slowly adding more volume to it. Maybe next year, we should know how it is scaling in the cloud.
How is customer service and technical support?
We have in-house experts and a good relationship with the Palo Alto technical support team.
Which solutions did we use previously?
We were using a lot of Cisco firewalls before. We switched because we wanted what works best in the cloud.
How was the initial setup?
We have been happy with the configuration and implementation on the AWS environment.
What was our ROI?
It takes the bottleneck away from the information security teams and increases their agility on projects.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?
We found purchasing process the product on the AWS Marketplace to be very good. We used the AWS Marketplace because we were set to move to AWS. We rely on Amazon and their partners to process our research.
What other advice do I have?

Out-of-the-box, it has all of the components that you need for a very secure environment

  • December 05, 2018
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

We use Palo Alto as a perimeter security device.
How has it helped my organization?
It is nice to have a rock solid security platform that we can count on.
What is most valuable?
* It is the leader in the marketplace.
* It has the ability to create Palo Alto VM-series using software.
* The VM-Series has all of the components (out-of-the-box) that you need in a very secure environment.
What needs improvement?
In the next release, I would like to see better integration of multi-factor authentication vendors.
For how long have I used the solution?
Three to five years.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
It is very stable. We have almost never had an issue.
We have around 15 VM-Series, which are running hot all day.
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
We're still learning about the scalability. We have run into some issues with scaling and limitations associated with some of the configurations. However, it is a solution that we have been happy with overall.
How is customer service and technical support?
Technical support is good.
What about the implementation team?
The integration and configuration of this product in our AWS environment was easy to pick up and very usable. It was a good walk between the old physical way and the new software or infrastructure as code (IaC) model.
What was our ROI?
We use Palo Alto to provide remote access, and we've been able to provide access for hundreds of users with a very short build out time. In the past, this would take a lot longer. Now, we don't have to wait for a physical box, etc.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?
Our company is entirely AWS, so it is the only place to go to purchase anything.
Some parts of purchasing through AWS Marketplace are good, such as this product was easy to find and launch. Some of the other parts could be clearer in the AWS Marketplace, e.g., how to properly do an annual subscription.
The pricing and licensing are reasonable.
Which other solutions did I evaluate?
We also evaluated Fortinet and some other competitors.
We chose Palo Alto because we had institutional experience and knowledge that we could bring over.
What other advice do I have?
Do a demo. Set one up and try it.
We have used both the physical and AWS versions. The physical version is a good product. However, in an AWS environment, the ability to automate and scale pieces of it are critical.
