Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The solution has plenty of features.""The most valuable feature is the improved security that it offers.""The most valuable feature for us is the VPN.""You have better control because you define apps. You just don't define ports. You define apps, and the apps are monitored in the traffic. It is more specific than the Cisco firewall when it comes to our needs.""The most valuable feature of this solution is how it keeps up-to-date with viruses.""The way that the solution quickly updates to adjust to threats is the solution's most valuable aspect. When there's a security attack, within five minutes, all Wildfire subscribers have access to updates so that all systems will be safe. Its threat prevention is way better than other vendor products.""Using WildFire has reduced the number of viruses and the amount of malware that comes into our system, which means that I don't have to rely on the end-users to identify it.""The technical support is good."

More Palo Alto Networks WildFire Pros »

"All features are useful. We are using premium features such as bandwidth sharing, failover, web filters, SSL controls, antivirus, and VPN. We use these features to the fullest. These features are available in the paid firewall license, not the free one.""Easy to set up and easy to integrate.""The most valuable features are IPS, MAPI, NAT, and VPN.""They have a command center that makes it easy to log into and see all of your appliances nationwide.""Its detection, antivirus, and filtering features are the most valuable. The facility to connect by using the VPN connection is also a very valuable feature. It is very strong, secure, and reliable. We have implemented the Untangle solution in all hardware. It is also a user-friendly solution. It is easy to learn and easy to configure."

Cons
"The threat intelligence that we receiving in the reporting was not as expected. We were expecting more. Additionally, we should be able to whitelist a specific file based on a variety of attributes.""Management and web filtering can be improved. There should also be better reporting, particularly around web filtering.""The price of WildFire should be reduced in order to make it more affordable for our customers.""The deployment model could be better.""It would be nice if there was an easier way to install and deploy it, such as through the inclusion of wizards.""When you contact support, there is no guarantee that they will be available to help you tackle the issue that you are facing.""The system performance degrades after the solution has been deployed for some time. The data that it gives us becomes a little bit slow. When you try to get some data for troubleshooting, it seems like it's working hard to extract that data.""Our main concern is that everything has to be synced with the WildFire Cloud and has to be checked through the subscription."

"Web-filtering policies could be improved.""The pricing should be reduced because it is expensive.""We seek the availability of the hardware in our region. The hardware-based firewall from Untangle is currently not available in our region. It should have threat protection on a real-time basis. This feature, available in Check Point and Sandstorm kind of scenario, is currently missing in Untangle NG Firewall.""The common center facility that Untangle provides should be available on-premises. There are great corporations here in Mexico that like the Untangle solution, but they don't like the fact that the monitoring and access to the appliance are in the cloud. They request for the common center facility to be available and installed on-premises.""They don't have any feature that allows you to drop the session."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The price is a bit higher than the other products such as TrendMicro, or FireEye.""WildFire is a little bit pricey. Sometimes it's difficult to sell it to customers at the current price.""The physical appliance is around €3,000 or €4,000, and then, you have the licensing for a year for around €3,000.""It depends on the features. Additional features cost additional money as well.""This solution is very pricey and it depends on the package that you implement.""Pricing could be improved.""We are on an annual subscription. When we purchased the firewall, we had activated this solutions license for a minimum of one year. The price of the solution is fair.""The solution is overpriced."

More Palo Alto Networks WildFire Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It is not expensive. It is cheaper than Fortinet.""It is not expensive. The best part is that it is based on the pay-per-use kind of scenario. An increase or decrease in the number of people doesn't make any difference. We are really happy about using this particular scenario.""The pricing model is better than with SonicWall."
