Valtix vs. Palo Alto Cloud NGFW
A Square Peg
in a Round Hole
Don’t Let Palo Alto Networks
Create a Mess of Your Cloud Network Security
The Palo Alto Cloud NGFW requires 3 different consoles: AWS Firewall Manager (FMS) for deployment, the Cloud NGFW console for policy, and there’s no console for analyzing logs going to AWS S3, Kinesis or CloudWatch.
Palo Alto Cloud NGFW is an AWS only offering. There is no support for Azure, and GCP has a separate IDS-only version which cannot inspect encrypted traffic. There’s yet another experience in OCI. With multiple products the PAN solution fragments your security.
Traffic is sent outside your cloud account boundaries to the Palo Alto Cloud NGFW along with access to your private encryption keys.
