We had a trade-in offer at the end of our first three-year term. As a result, we pretty much got a free device by buying the three-year subscription. It was around $3,000 for the three-years. View full review »

There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees. It was pretty much, "Get the license and you're good to go for the year." View full review »

The price is so small that I don't pay attention to it anymore. I think we pay a few thousand dollars for two to three years, so about $100 per month. That's for all of our users. There is an additional cost if we want to go with a deeper licensing model, but we just pay for antivirus, IPS, and main product support. View full review »

I think we might be subscribed to one or two of the premium features. View full review »

When we bought them we got a three-year license for each device. The two larger devices are about $1,000 each and the smaller ones are about $500 or $600 each. There are some additional software features that you can add on and pay for, but we don't use them. View full review »

They are well priced for the market and offer discounts for competitor trades and model upgrades which are definitely worth taking advantage of. View full review »

I.T. Manager at a construction company with 201-500 employees
We bought ours bundled with two or three years at the time we bought them. I haven't seen the pricing since 2017, but it was competitive. SonicWall, Barracuda, and WatchGuard were all about the same price when we did our last pricing. View full review »
Rick Phillips
IT Manager at IDI Distributors Inc.
We only license our corporate one and the one we have at our DR site, we don't worry about the branches. It doesn't pay for us to license the ones at the branches. What they charge for what they call basic maintenance is extremely high for those little fireboxes. So we don't bother with them. View full review »

John Farmer
Manager/Senior Systems Administrator at a tech services company
Our licensing costs are around $3000 on a yearly basis. It is just a licensing fee for the services, like the UTM services, and it includes support. View full review »

Operations Manager at DLL Technologies
The setup cost is extremely low for what you get with the Firebox M470. The cost of the Firebox M470 was a third of the cost of a Barracuda and a high-end SonicWall. I loved that I could add an SFP module to the firewall and use both Ethernet and fiber connections. You will need licensing for the security features like Total Security Suite, etc. View full review »

There is an additional cost for support on top of licensing. When I bought my new unit, I received additional time added to my support. View full review »

COO/CTO at a pharma/biotech company with 11-50 employees
If you are experienced, I can recommend the T70 set-up with minimal support and reference. Since I am relatively new as a systems engineer/IT design, I have had to reference a lot of online sources and hire an expert familiar with the WatchGuard line of products to help shorten my learning curve and get the system up and running quickly.

The cheapest configuration, for maybe five people, is approximately $500. There are several other license steps that vary based on the number of security services that are included in the subscription. View full review »
