Product Review

The Palo Alto PA-200 offers versatile interface modes including L2, L3, tap, and virtual wire, catering to various network architectures and enhancing deployment flexibility. However, its firewall throughput of 100 Mbps and threat prevention throughput of 50 Mbps may limit performance in environments with high traffic demands. Additionally, the device's comprehensive routing capabilities and support for IPsec VPN with various key exchange mechanisms make it suitable for secure, multi-site connectivity, though its relatively low new sessions per second and max sessions capacity could be restrictive for larger networks.


The Palo Alto PA-200 is a compact network security appliance that offers comprehensive security features, suitable for small office and remote location deployments. This device integrates multiple layers of security, offering advanced threat prevention capabilities in a small form factor. It is engineered to deliver enterprise-grade security to small network segments with the flexibility required for diverse network environments. At the core of the PA-200’s hardware specifications is its ability to process traffic efficiently, with a firewall throughput of 100 Mbps when App-ID is enabled. This ensures that even with deep packet inspection and advanced security features activated, network performance remains optimal. The threat prevention throughput stands at 50 Mbps, providing effective defense mechanisms against a wide array of cyber threats. Additionally, the device supports IPsec VPN throughput at 50 Mbps, facilitating secure remote access. The PA-200 is capable of initiating up to 1,000 new sessions per second, with a maximum of 64,000 concurrent sessions, making it adept at handling sudden surges in network traffic without degradation in performance. For connectivity, the device is equipped with four 10/100/1000 I/O ports and includes a dedicated 10/100 out-of-band management port and one RJ-45 console port for simplified management. Storage is handled by a 16GB SSD, providing ample space for logs and software updates. The power supply is designed for efficiency, with average and maximum power consumption rated at 20W and 30W respectively, and a maximum BTU per hour of 102. This efficient power usage contributes to the device’s reliability, with a Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) of 13 years, highlighting the appliance’s durability. Key hardware specifications include: -
  • Interface Modes: L2, L3, tap, virtual wire (transparent mode)
  • Management I/O: 10/100 out-of-band management port, (1) RJ-45 console port
  • Power Supply: Average/Max Power Consumption 20W/30W
The PA-200 operates within a temperature range of 32° to 40° C when active, and can be stored in conditions ranging from -4° to 158° F (-20° to 70° C), ensuring reliability across various environmental conditions. For network configuration, it supports multiple interface modes such as L2, L3, tap, and virtual wire (transparent mode), alongside VLAN support with up to 4,094 tags per device/interface. Routing capabilities are robust, with support for OSPFv2/v3, BGP (both with graceful restart), RIP, and static routing. The device also offers flexible VPN options, including manual key, IKEv1, and IKEv2 for IPsec VPN connections, with both pre-shared key and certificate-based authentication. Additional features such as Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) and policy-based forwarding ensure that the PA-200 can cater to a wide array of networking requirements. Weighing just 2.8 lbs as a stand-alone device (5.0 lbs when shipped), the PA-200's compact design does not compromise on its security capabilities, making it an ideal choice for securing small office environments with limited space.
