We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"You're going to get what you pay for. If you're not willing to pay the price of Cisco, you're not going to get a product that's as good as Cisco. I don't think Cisco is overpriced, because for the last two years I've been comparing it to Microsoft and Cisco has been cheaper and given us more features."
"In my previous organization, avoiding four instances of CryptoLocker within an estimated six month period is approximately $600,000 in lost time and effort. Our five year cost was about a million dollars, and the four outages that we had equated to 65 percent of that five year cost."
"The licensing was all transferred."
"Compared to Cisco's on-prem service, the cost is the same, but you don't have to pay for the hardware and you don't have to maintain the system, as far as upgrades and hardware failures are concerned. It is cheaper to operate on their cloud service than it is to operate with their on-prem service."
"Cisco Secure Email and the support are priced well. It's not cheap, but there are other solutions that offer less and cost so much. For example, Microsoft is more expensive than Cisco."
"There are additional fees for adding features."
"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."
