I'm a telecom operator, so all of my IT and network management stuff is behind this firewall.
We have eight VFDs. We have the bigger firewalls. I forget the model number but they're the bigger ones. We have smaller ones—the 220s— so we have a pretty good range of Palo Alto firewalls that we use in our company.
We primarily use the solution for protection, especially web protection.
We use the solution to protect our network perimeter because we have some software products that have internet connectivity.
We use the firewalls to defend our perimeter and data center.
We primarily use the solution as a next-generation firewall.
We are a system integrator and this Palo Alto K2-Series is one of the firewall products that we implement for our customers.
We are a system integrator and the Palo Alto K2-Series is one of the network solutions that we implement for our clients. Many of the implementations that I am part of are for the banking sector in Egypt and generally, they are not interested in cloud-based solutions. The K2-Series is well-suited for this use case.
We are a solution provider and the Palo Alto K2-Series is one of the products that we implement for our clients. Our clients for this work in a variety of sectors.
We are a solution provider and this is one of the firewalls that we provide to our customers. The majority of our customers for Palo Alto products are in the banking industry.
I am a network security engineer and this is one of the products that make up our security solution. We implement this product for our clients.
Until recently, most of my time was spent implementing this product and our company still does that. As a security solutions architect, I'm now more focused on the architecture and that side of things. We're partners with Palo Alto.
The solution was a firewall that bridged the internal systems with their DMC equipment and/or restricted systems access that wasn't generally available to anyone outside of the organization.
The primary use for this solution depends on the preference of a customer and to some extent their existing environment. We have to establish things like: * what are the business requirements * how we can utilize what is existing or if the client needs to upgrade equipment * what kind of servers do we put in * what kind of servers does he have on cloud * what kind of servers do we have on-premises So it all depends on the customer's requirements. If a query comes up with a client, I am happy to answer that and provide a resolution but the situation needs to consider specific needs.
I work at a large enterprise manufacturing company.
Between Palo Alto and Fortinet firewalls, which one has better features?
If you could go back in time, would you change your decision to buy that firewall and why?
