Pricing and Cost Advice
"There are a couple of different consumption models: Pay up front, or if you have an enterprise agreement, you can do a monthly thing. Check your licensing possibilities and see what's best for your organization.""The pricing and licensing are reasonable. The cost of AMP for Endpoints is inline with all the other software that has a monthly endpoint cost. It might be a little bit higher than other antivirus type products, but we're only talking about a dollar a month per user. I don't see that cost as being an issue if it's going to give us the confidence and security that we're looking for. We have had a lot of success and happiness with what we're using, so there's no point in changing.""There is also the Cisco annual subscription plus my management time in terms of what I do with the Cisco product. I spend a minimal amount of time on it though, just rolling out updates as they need them and monitoring the console a couple of times a day to ensure nothing is out of control. Cost-wise, we are quite happy with it.""In our case, it is a straightforward annual payment through our Enterprise Agreement.""Licensing fees are on a yearly basis and I am happy with the pricing.""Whenever you are doing the licensing process, I would highly advise to look at what other Cisco solutions you have in your organization, then evaluate if an Enterprise Agreement is the best way to go. In our case, it was the best way to go. Since we had so many other Cisco products, we were able to tie those in. We were actually able to get several Cisco security solutions for less than if we had bought three or four Cisco security solutions independently or ad hoc.""The Enterprise Agreement is like an all-you-can-eat buffet of Cisco products. In that vein, it was very affordable.""We can know if something bad is potentially happening instantaneously and prevent it from happening. We can go to a device and isolate it before it infects other devices. In our environment, that's millions of dollars saved in a matter of seconds."

"I pay for it through the Windows Professional or Standard license. It is a one-time cost for me, and I use the same license.""It is built into Windows 10. If our clients are using Microsoft Defender, the cost goes away for them.""Its price is fair. It has approximately the same price as the other products such as Kaspersky. It is much cheaper than Malwarebytes.""Licensing options vary. Some customers buy it as an enterprise agreement and pay yearly. Others buy it as a CSP, so they pay per month. It completely depends on the customer's needs.""It's included with the Windows Operating System, I don't pay for any licensing fees.""There is no license needed, the solution comes with Microsoft Windows.""When customers haven't deployed the solution and don't have licenses, it can be expensive to start from scratch.""The solution is an open source version and was free with a paid version of Windows 10."
