Pricing and Cost Advice
Always consider what you might need to reduce your wasted time and invest it in other solutions.
Pricing varies on the model and the features we are using. It could be anywhere from $600 to $1000 to up to $7,000 per year, depending on what model and what feature sets are available to us.
We used Check Point and the two are comparable. Cost was really what put us onto the ASAs... the price tag for Check Point was exorbitantly more than what it is for the ASA solution.
We are in the process of renewing our three-year license, which costs approximately $24,000 USD for the thirty-six months.
The pricing for Cisco products is higher than others, but Cisco is a very good, strong, and stable technology.
The program is very expensive.
The cost of this solution is high.
Some of our customers would be more likely to standardize on Cisco equipment if the cost was lower because a lot of people install cheap equipment.

Other content filtering solutions that I have used had more bells and whistles, but given the cost, complexity, and management overhead, I am very pleased with Meraki’s solution.
Meraki is also expensive, but it's a little bit less expensive and it's easier to configure than Cisco ASA.
Pricing varies as per the type of license.
