There are a couple of companies who specialize in Company and Product comparison.  This document is from the Palo Alto website and is a link to the Gartner report:


Gartner Magic Quadrant Report - Next Generation Firewalls


This is a test of the Anti-Virus capability (again from the PA website):


AV-TEST Validated: Traps Can Replace Legacy Antivirus


This is a test of the throughput by NSS Labs (again from the PA website).  This is the company that PA was fighting with a couple of years ago regarding the testing being fair or not.
