We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Purchasing from the AWS Marketplace was easy. It was just point and click.""It is pay-as-you-go, so it much cheaper than buying in the plants.""Our individual release cycle has been quicker because the entire development and testing environment has been automated because of these virtual instances. It has aligned our development workflow. This is where we have seen the ROI increase.""With the Cisco ASA, you do get what you pay for. What would really be awesome is to see Cisco blow out a real cheap version where you can use the sandbox, but leave it step-wise and go to another product relatively easily, like getting you hooked on candy.""We are partners with Cisco. They are always one call away, which is good. They know how to keep their customers happy.""Pricing is high, but it is essentially a corporate decision.""Licensing is expensive compared to other solutions.""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."

"It's pretty expensive but with respect to value for money, it's okay.""The licensing fees are on an annual basis, and there are no costs in addition to the standard fees.""We pay between $3,000 and $4,000 CAD ($2,200 - $3,000 USD) per year to maintain this solution.""This solution is very pricey and it depends on the package that you implement.""I think they should lower the price of this solution""The pricing is highly expensive.""This is an expensive product and the market for Palo Alto in Poland could be much bigger if the pricing was comparable to Fortinet."
