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.

Bottom Line Impact:

Elevated Security Risk


Not Really

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.

Bottom Line Impact:

Wasted Expense and Efforts


Lost Traffic

Traffic is sent outside your cloud account boundaries to the Palo Alto Cloud NGFW along with access to your private encryption keys.

Bottom Line Impact:

Increased Compliance Risk
