Pricing and Cost Advice
"There is a one-time cost of approximately $800 USD per user, and then a yearly support fee of about $50 per user.""Our costs were negotiated, and they are okay.""Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis.""Licensing fees are paid on a yearly basis.""Cisco has a model called ELA. With ELA, if you buy the solution you will have the complete security portfolio and you can pay it yearly or after three years, it depends on the contract.""I am not sure, I don't have the numbers in front of me, but I think it's $1.00 or so per device/month.""Cisco uses subscription models for the pricing and there are three subscription plans.""The licensing part for Umbrella is really flexible."

Defending against sophisticated threats from the web takes advanced technology, but it doesn’t have to drive cost and complexity. Delivering web security from the cloud enables security teams to gain the same benefits of advanced threat protection as on-premises appliances but without the cost of hardware or the resources used to maintain it. As more web access occurs outside the network perimeter, the cloud becomes the consistent point of contact for devices and users as they roam. Instead of building security for traffic flowing into a single location, it is more effective to build security from the endpoint out. Unifying access control and threat protection for the Cloud and Web enables your workforce to operate with maximum productivity while creating an efficient and consistent security management experience.

Moving to the cloud introduces new security and compliance risks, but it also enables tremendous new defensive strategies. Cloud-delivered network security adds flexibility and boosts performance, while protecting users with consistent threat prevention and data compliance policies—wherever they go.

Symantec Web Security Service delivers a broad set of advanced capabilities—including a secure web gateway (SWG), software defined perimeter, anti-virus scanning, sandboxing, web isolation, data loss prevention (DLP), and email security. As your users directly access the web, you can extend consistent policies that follow your sensitive data wherever it goes.
