The cost is a bit high compared to other solutions in the market.
Cisco recently has become very expensive.
The cost is a bit higher than other competitive solutions on the market.
It is considered on the "high end" of the spectrum.
The cost of keeping the licensing up on the ASA is very expensive. It has a lot of positives, but the cost of going with it is really starting to be a major negative right now.
Commercial leasing is the best option.

It is not that expensive.
Pricing is good. Most of the costs are in the UTM (IDS/IPS, virus scanning, etc) subscription.
Palo Alto was nice, but much more expensive.
We were able to lower our overall operating costs over a three year period by 25%, mostly recovered from maintenance/support costs.
Small enterprises or telco have variant licenses, and this licensing should be improved.
