Pricing and Cost Advice
"We pay about $200 yearly and we have two firewalls."
"It's very competitive with other products."
"Cisco is considered to be an expensive solution."
"Always consider what you might need to reduce your wasted time and invest it in other solutions."
"The licensing is a bit off because the physical firewall is cheaper than the virtual one. We only have the physical ones as they are cheaper than the virtual ones. We only use the physical firewalls because of the price difference."
"There is room for improvement in the pricing when compared to the market. Although, when you compare the benefits of support from Cisco, you can adjust the value and it becomes comparable, because you usually need very good support. So you gain value there with this device."
"When it comes to Cisco, the price of everything is higher. Cisco firewalls are expensive, but we get support from Cisco, and that support is very active."
"It's a brilliant firewall, and the fact that it comes with a perpetual license really does go far in terms of helping the organization in not having to deal with those costs on an annual basis. That is a pain point when it comes to services like the ones we have on Fortigate. That's where we really give Cisco firewalls the thumbs up."
"We pay approximately €150,000 ($166,000 USD) per year."
"It is more expensive than other solutions and would be more competetive in the market if it came down in price."
"On average, it is normally on the lower end, being less expensive than Palo Alto or Cisco."
