We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We do annual licensing for Cisco Secure Email Gatewayand SMA together, and possibly SmartNet support. Packaged together, the cost is just under $38,000."
"In addition to the standard licensing, there is a cost for SMARTnet as well."
"Pricing depends on your environment and which model you want to buy."
"Licensing costs depend on how many users there are. It could range between $5 and $7 per month, per user."
"The license was not per user, the license model was per feature. You could choose anti-virus, anti-spam, etc. It was feature-based and charged yearly."
"There were no other costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
"We were using Proofpoint and then we switched to Cisco... reportability was one of the main reasons we switched, but the biggest one was cost. If you can get an equivalent functionality for a better price it's wise to do so. That's what our primary decision came down to: We could get equivalent functionality at a lower price point."
"It is not that costly. We pay for the solution through a contractor and pay an annual fee."
"For overall value and cost, Barracuda came in as most appropriate, price as well as services provided. In terms of price, it's average . It's not the most expensive, it's not the least expensive but it works well."
"The price of this solution is very high, but it's working fine."
"Our licensing fees are approximately $4,000 per year, and this includes updates for the antivirus and spam signatures."
"As far as advanced email security systems, this product is mid-range on the pricing scale."
"The pricing for the product is fine."
"The licensing fees are part of a bundled support package that we pay for."
"We pay between $8 and $10 USD per user per month."
"The licensing cost is competitive, it's not too high and not too low."
