We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The price of this solution is not good or bad."
"The Firepower series of appliances is not cheap. I just got a quote recently for six firewalls that was in the range of over half-a-million dollars. That's what could push us to look to other vendors..."
"Our subscription costs, just for the firewalls, is between $400,000 and $500,000 a year."
"Cisco's pricing is high, at times, for what they provide."
"The one-time cost is affordable, but the maintenance cost and the Smart Net costs need to be reduced. They're too high."
"We normally license on a yearly basis. The hardware procurement cost should be considered. If you're virtual maybe that cost is eradicated and just the licensing cost is applied. If you have hardware the cost must be covered by you. All the shipping charges will be paid by you also. I don't thing there are any other hidden charges though."
"Cisco pricing is premium. However, they gave us a 50 to 60 percent discount."
"There are additional implementation and validation costs."
"The program is expensive."
"We pay an annual license fee. It is rather expensive so I would like to perhaps see a drop in price in the future."
"Be sure to choose a licensing plan that leaves a little headroom so performance is not an issue."
"We pay $100,000. That covers the cost of the hardware that we run the VN's on. That also includes any SGNA costs for the internal support tech."
"Pricing depends on implementation and licensing choices and is usually not a practical budget choice for small businesses."
"The support contracts are usually about $100 - $200 a device."
"The software costs roughly half what the hardware costs. Overall, the product is expensive."
