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.

​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.It is more expensive than other solutions, but it is a cloud-managed network solution and support is given at the moment you call.

If you buy a different license you lost all the valuable functions.It can always improve pricewise regarding throughput.
