Product Review

The Palo Alto PA-2050 firewall offers a balanced performance with a 1 Gbps App-ID enabled throughput and supports up to 250,000 sessions, making it suitable for mid-sized enterprise environments. However, its threat prevention throughput is limited to 500 Mbps, which may bottleneck under heavy, complex threat scenarios. It also provides versatility with support for up to 2,000 IPSec VPN tunnels and high availability options, but the 160GB HDD storage might be insufficient for extensive logging or reporting over long periods.
