Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
The price: It is a bit higher than the other competitors. This is why I started to look at other brands.
The basic pricing in Austria is OK, but asking for special offers, e.g., NPOs, NGOs, trade up, and/or trade in, is always useful.
The price is expensive compared with other vendors, like Cisco and Huawei.
The best part of Fortinet is the license is bundled together, so it is easy to use and apply.
The pricing and licensing are not as expensive as its competitors.
It is on par with what you receive. It can be expensive upfront.
It would be nice to have the ability to extend FortiGuard subscriptions at a reasonable yearly cost versus a bulk three year pricing.
It is an expensive solution if you are migrating from an open source solution.
