BMC Helix Cloud Security Pricing and License Cost

Managing Director at VVL Systems
It is a subscription model with term licensing that is usually yearly. This includes, not only the product, but support and maintenance. It is based on cloud assets. Therefore, if you have 100 cloud assets, those cloud assets are measured based on evaluation or transactions. For example, if I'm evaluating that cloud asset for CIS compliance, PCI compliance, and AWS best practices, that asset gets evaluated three times, as those are three transactions. However, the license model is based on peak asset usage. So, over a year, if you deploy 100, 1000, 500, and then 2000 assets, you will be charged for the 2000 peak of assets managed by Helix Cloud Security. I have operational costs for my staff, but it's not part of the BMC licensing. View full review »

Whether your assets are in Azure and AWS combined, the tool tells you how many assets are being scanned and that's the number used for pricing. The subscription model is good. It makes sense that you are paying for cloud assets. There are so many different types of resource assets, specifically with AWS, so that number can really grow. But at the same time it's telling you how many assets you have. You understand what you're paying for. The license is very simple. There's no gray zone or muddy water in understanding how the pricing and licensing work. View full review »
