Snyk Pricing and License Cost

Nicholas Secrier

Pricing and licensing of Snyk is okay. Their model is based on the number of committers of your source code, which can be a little bit false at times. It can be false because we have some QAs and some BAs, for example, who sometimes go in and add comments. They're not writing code, but they're flagged as committers of the code. That can cause some misunderstanding but we discussed this Snyk and explained the situation. They were quite okay with that. So although the number of people they see in Snyk is slightly higher, they're not holding us with our backs to the wall, saying, "Hey, you're over your license." The only cost is whatever you run on your cloud. If you deploy the CLI integration and you run Snyk you need to take into account the cost, but it's not huge. View full review »

It's good value. That's the primary thing. It's not cheap-cheap, but it's good value. We managed to build a package of features that we were able to live with, in negotiation, and that worked really well. We did a mix and match. We got single sign-on and some of the other things. The Kubernetes, the container service, versus the source-code service, for us, as a cloud deployment, was well worth it. The ability there has been really useful, but that's clearly an extra cost.

With Snyk, you get what you pay for. It is not a cheap solution, but you get a comprehensiveness and level of coverage that is very good. The dollars in the security budget only go so far. If I can maximize my value and be able to have some funds left over for other initiatives, I want to do that. That is what drives me to continue to say, "What's out there in the market? Snyk's expensive, but it's good. Is there something as good, but more affordable?" Ultimately, I find we could go cheaper, but we would lose the completeness of vision or scope. I am not willing to do that because Snyk does provide a pretty important benefit for us. Snyk is a premium-priced product, so it's kind of expensive. The big con that I find frustrating is when a company charges extra for single sign-on (SSO) into their SaaS app. Snyk is one of the few that I'm willing to pay that add-on charge, but generally I disqualify products that charge an extra fee to do integrated authentication to our identity provider, like Okta or some other SSO. That is a big negative. We had to pay extra for that. That little annoyance aside, it is expensive. You get a lot out of it, but you're paying for that premium. View full review »

The price is good. Snyk had a good price compared to the competition, who had higher pricing than them. Also, their licensing and billing are clear. View full review »

Their licensing model is fairly robust and scalable for our needs. I believe we have reached a reasonable agreement on the licensing to enable hundreds of developers to participate in this product offering. The solution is very tailored towards developers and its licensing model works well for us. View full review »
