Pricing and Cost Advice
Always consider what you might need to reduce your wasted time and invest it in other solutions.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.

It would be nice if pricing could do more to reflect the economy of the country where the product is being implemented.This solution might be expensive, but it is economical in the long run.With AnyConnect, it depends on your license. It depends on the number of concurrent users you want to connect.I bought a license for three years and it was really affordable.We are partners with Cisco. They are always one call away, which is good. They know how to keep their customers happy.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.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.
