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

Pricing and Cost Advice
"With the Cisco ASA, you do get what you pay for. What would really be awesome is to see Cisco blow out a real cheap version where you can use the sandbox, but leave it step-wise and go to another product relatively easily, like getting you hooked on candy.""We are partners with Cisco. They are always one call away, which is good. They know how to keep their customers happy.""Pricing is high, but it is essentially a corporate decision.""Licensing is expensive compared to other solutions.""The cost is a big factor for us. This is why we are using it only in our restricted area. They are very much higher than their competitors in the market.""We paid about $7,000 for the Cisco firewall, plus another small Cisco router and the lead switch. It was under the combined license. It's a final agreement.""Watch out for hidden licensing and incredibly high annual maintenance costs.""I bought a license for three years and it was really affordable."

"For licensing the XG 210, we paid approximately $3000 for three years. There are no additional fees on top of this.""It's a suitable price and license.""We are paying about $1,500 yearly for the Enterprise Plus. As far as I know, there aren't costs above this standard fee.""The Sophos pricing, in general, is better than SonicWall, Fortinet, WatchGuard, or anybody else.""We paid for our licensing for three years, upfront, and there are no costs in addition to the standard fees.""The price is cheaper than that of some competing vendors.""The pricing is flexible. Sophos looks at a country's economy and offers flexible pricing. This is how they have managed to penetrate the market.""It's approximately $6,000 for each device."
