Pricing and Cost Advice
"Our licensing costs are on a yearly basis.""The product cost is low. It is quite cheap.""On a yearly basis, our licensing is $10,000. However, our license is now nearly full with devices. We need the next bigger license with 5,000 devices, which will cost us $19,000. We pay for a set of licenses, a maximum number of devices, and a maximum number of IP addresses. We have the smallest amount of features, which is enough for us at this time.""The problem with using other vendor, like BMC, is the pricing. The price is so horrible and nobody wants to pay this money.""We pay $100,000 per year."
