Work got a couple of Palo Alto boxes that will be used for a customer. No real gameplan has been issued yet, but I was wondering what exactly sets these boxes apart from, say, an ASA?
It appears to me to just be a linux machine with their custom overlay. I'm sure there's a lot I'm not seeing as I haven't done much with them, but I can't help but be wary.
What I'm asking is:
- What are the strengths of Palo Alto Firwalls(specifically the 3000 series)
- In what cases would you use one over a Cisco ASA?
