Configuring the network was the easiest part of implementation, but the internet failover needs to work better.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pricing and Cost Advice
Watch out for hidden licensing and incredibly high annual maintenance costs.
We paid about $7,000 for the Cisco firewall, plus another small Cisco router and the lead switch. It was under the combined license. It's a final agreement.
The cost is a big factor for us. This is why we are using it only in our restricted area. They are very much higher than their competitors in the market.
Licensing is expensive compared to other solutions.
Pricing is high, but it is essentially a corporate decision.
The cost is a bit high compared to other solutions in the market.
Cisco recently has become very expensive.
The cost is a bit higher than other competitive solutions on the market.

This solution is less expensive than FortiGate.
The biggest issue with Sophos is the pricing. It's definitely more expensive. As I said, we looked at Webroot, which is a big alternative, and Sophos was almost three times the price of Webroot. That's a pretty big difference.
Sometimes more is less, meaning if you want more than three features, take the FullGuard licence.
We purchased the appliance with five years onsite support and licenses.
Pricing for the upgrade was very competitive as Sophos wanted to retain existing customers.
The pricing and licensing are both good and better than Sophos's competitors. This is why we went with the product.
The AWS Marketplace product should be a better fit, but it is a little pricier.
Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace is pretty straightforward. Because were entirely on AWS and don't have anything anywhere else. It made the most sense for us as a one stop shop.
