Hello,

Wanted to ask the community for some of their input. I am currently looking at the Foritnet 200B (http://www.fortinet.com/products/fortigate/200B.html) and the Palo Alto PA500 (http://www.paloaltonetworks.com/products/platforms/pa-500.html)

Currently I use Forto but Palo Alto has caught our eye as we are looking to upgrade

Anyone for or against either of these products? Thank you

I understand the Palo Alto is considerdly more expensive

Maybe if you elaborated a bit on your requirements a bit? What features of the PA are you currently using, what throughput of stuff like content filtering/IDS do you need, etc. ...
The Fortinet boxes are pretty good value for the money, but not having used them before, calculate in some time to learn ... or get a good provider/partner to at least get the whole system set up and running to get you started ...
