Pricing and Cost Advice
"Cisco recently has become very expensive.""The cost is a bit high compared to other solutions in the market.""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."

"The price is high in comparison to other solutions.""We pay $5,000-$6,000 a year.""Maybe the pricing is a bit high but you get the durability and the duration.""Licensing issues may be confusing at times.""It is quite an expensive product, although security is a top priority.""This product is not cheap and there are additional costs that depend on what model or package that you buy.""Palo Alto is somehow not as good as Check Point, budget-wise and performance-wise. Palo Alto is more costly than Check Point.""Comparatively, Check Point pricing is a little high. However, if you have that budget, I would recommend anybody to go with Check Point."
