Pricing and Cost Advice
"Purchasing from the AWS Marketplace was easy. It was just point and click.""It is pay-as-you-go, so it much cheaper than buying in the plants.""Our individual release cycle has been quicker because the entire development and testing environment has been automated because of these virtual instances. It has aligned our development workflow. This is where we have seen the ROI increase.""With the Cisco ASA, you do get what you pay for. What would really be awesome is to see Cisco blow out a real cheap version where you can use the sandbox, but leave it step-wise and go to another product relatively easily, like getting you hooked on candy.""We are partners with Cisco. They are always one call away, which is good. They know how to keep their customers happy.""Pricing is high, but it is essentially a corporate decision.""Licensing is expensive compared to other solutions.""The cost is a big factor for us. This is why we are using it only in our restricted area. They are very much higher than their competitors in the market."

"We find the most valuable aspect of this solution is the price. It is affordable, and cheaper than other firewalls.""It is an inexpensive solution.""It is cost-effective, and provides a good value for your money. The pricing, and license renewal, is very reasonable for us.""They need to be competitive with other solutions.""It is a good product from a price perspective versus functionality.""Price-wise, it's at a good price point for our market.""The initial setup is super straight forward and as far as the licensing goes for the small product that we have, the pricing was pretty competitive. It wasn't as simple and as cheap as a SonicWall but for the service we would get it was a good price.""Compared to Palo Alto, which we have used in the past, pricing and licensing are okay."
