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 ESA and 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."

"The licensing model for this solution is better because it is based on the box and not the number of users.""It is an expensive product.""The annual cost is $55,000.""Pricing is straight-forward and renewable without complicated pricing structures.""Pricing is based on initial license purchase and use volume.""In the future I would like it if there's a possibility to lower the price of the bandwidth and UTM. It is quite expensive.""This is a good solution and value for the money.""If you don't need the full bundle that includes everything, you have options for the small or medium enterprise environments."
