Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
The pricing is perfect.The price, in comparison to other products is very cheap.The beauty is the price performance ratio is great with FortiGate. It provides all the features we needed and the price is comparable with others' firewalls. The price is quite competitive with the firewalls with similar features.I do not have personal experience with the pricing of the solution because my boss has been taking care of that aspect of the relationship with the solution.No comment.Setup cost may be not so low, as you expect, because it depends on different factors, but TCO for 5 years may pleasantly surprise you.Compared to other firewall products, it's a little cheaper in terms of pricing.It scales well if you know what to buy from a physical box standpoint. They seem to offer something for every level.
