We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We do annual licensing for Cisco Secure Email Gatewayand SMA together, and possibly SmartNet support. Packaged together, the cost is just under $38,000.""In addition to the standard licensing, there is a cost for SMARTnet as well.""Pricing depends on your environment and which model you want to buy.""Licensing costs depend on how many users there are. It could range between $5 and $7 per month, per user.""The license was not per user, the license model was per feature. You could choose anti-virus, anti-spam, etc. It was feature-based and charged yearly.""There were no other costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.""We were using Proofpoint and then we switched to Cisco... reportability was one of the main reasons we switched, but the biggest one was cost. If you can get an equivalent functionality for a better price it's wise to do so. That's what our primary decision came down to: We could get equivalent functionality at a lower price point.""It is not that costly. We pay for the solution through a contractor and pay an annual fee."

"It's on a subscribed basis.""When we're talking about pricing, other products have about the same price. That is normal.""The price of this solution could be more competitive.""It should cost around $60,000. We bought it as a bundle, so everything comes together in the license. That is standard.""A license for our company using FortiMail and FortiCare (filtering and support) was $4000.""The licensing is for three years. In the beginning, we did not pay monthly, it was paid once for three years.""You only have to purchase one license for multiple participants."
