Plixer Scrutinizer Pricing and License Cost

AdrianGrant
Network Manager at IOOF Holdings
We pay our one-off cost for the licenses, per device, in blocks of 50. And then we pay an annual maintenance fee of about $15,000 Australian, which is, at this point in time, about $9,000 US, for those 250 devices. The upfront costs for the 250-license use, were about $50,000 Australian, which is about $32,000 US. There is also the cost of the infrastructure, but that's a little bit hidden: the storage infrastructure and computer infrastructure to run it. The price point is on par with its competitors, but you get more value for money out of Plixer because you get that security focus as well. View full review »

They charge you by the number of sensors. The licensing model that they use, because it's on a number basis, means you don't have to have any cryptic SSL certs or anything else to install that are really difficult. For that part of it, the deployment and the installation, you have to make sure that server is right. Once it's up and running, you start pointing your devices towards it and there's no crypto that you have to decrypt or anything else. The licensing is all maintained through the number of sensors that are reporting into it. Compared to some of the other tools we have, it's incredibly reasonably priced. The best part about that is that if you talk to their sales force, they'll give you a demo for either 30 or 60 days. In that 30 or 60 days, when we set the server it was for a couple of devices, just to test-harness it and see if it was going to do what we thought it was going to do. They'll let you see if you think you're going to be happy with it. There are some additional modules that can be activated. I believe there's advanced reporting but I don't actually use some of their advanced features. There are additional modules that come with additional costs. View full review »

We recently bought a license upgrade, so we will integrate more exporters. We upgraded from a 25 exporter license to a 50 exporter license. Therefore, there will be more flows, and this will be an extension. I don't know when we will purchase a faster server, because the server that we have is quite new. Right now, there are no plans to purchase NetFlow Replicator. We are thinking about Flow Analytics. It's about €10,000 a year for initial license and yearly maintenance costs. In addition, the hardware costs are about €10,000 once every five years. View full review »

Our entire solution, amortized over five years, is in the vicinity of $40,000 to $50,000 a year. There are no additional costs because they're appliances. We buy them full-blown. View full review »

We have increased the license over time. We have added more licenses as the network has grown. There is a recurring maintenance fee after the initial purchase or if we want the license upgrade. View full review »

There are no extra costs. It's about $8,000 a year. The bang for the buck (cost) is definitely a plus. They gave us a 30-day license. We did a 30-day demo. We installed it, knowing that if we bought it, we could just add a license and continue on. So, we did a 30-day PoC, and they gave us good support during that time. View full review »
