We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Cisco pricing is premium. However, they gave us a 50 to 60 percent discount."
"I know that licensing for some of the advanced solutions, like Intrusion Prevention and Secure Malware Analytics, are nominal costs."
"Cisco, as we all know, is expensive, but for the money you are paying, you know that you are also getting top-notch documentation as well as support if needed."
"It definitely competes with the other vendors in the market."
"I am happy with the product in general, including the pricing."
"The price for Firepower is more expensive than FortiGate. The licensing is very complex. We usually ask for help from Solutel because of its complexity. I have a Cisco account where I can download the VPN client, then connect. Instead, I create an issue with Solutel, then Solutel solves the case."
"When we are fighting against other competitors for customers, whether it is a small or big business, we feel very comfortable with the price that Firepower has today."
"This product is expensive."
"It's expensive, but compared to the competition it's okay."
"As far as I'm aware, in our case, it's just a yearly pricing arrangement with no additional licensing costs."
"They are very competitive, but we like to have the factory warranty taken care of."
"It's an expensive solution."
"The price is fair compared to the other competitors."
"For our organization, the licensing costs are approximately $7,000 per year."
"The price could be lower."
"The pricing for the product is alright."
