PRICING FOR FORESCOUT CT10K APPLIANCE


Hi,

I am looking to buy a Forescout CT10K appliance for the implementation of Network Access Control covering 10,000 IPs for my organisation but I need an estimate of the original OEM cost for this item to guide my negotiations with the local partners who have submitted some ridiculous costs to me.

Can someone please help with an estimated cost

Patriot Technologies should be able to give you a sanity quote to see what is a normal price. This is publicly available on their GSA Schedule for the Fed Govt.

I can't give you the exact answer because we opted Aruba Clearpass NAC - We got it for $37k 5K IPs, OEM is about $50k.

After reading the request, this is more of a pricing exercise than a technology or solution question. The client basically wants an idea of the OEM cost to a VAR before mark up to resell to him for the project.

This can only be made available from a VAR or reseller as to their buying costs, reality is no one would reveal their true costs, they would only reveal their sell price at MSRP and a discounted sell price if offered.

Some research indicates the MSRP appears to be in the range of 126K at the following web portal.

I am not sure if it has the right bundle to it but this will at least give you a price to use otherwise you would have to go to an
authorized reseller to get a price. Hope this helps.

Hi,

I went all through this with a previous client this year.

If you're looking at the Hardware Appliance it can start to get expensive as you also need support for the HW. If high availability is also a requirement the second box, extra licensing and support costs can be quite considerable.

Previous company was very price sensitive.
The final solution was to use the VM appliance running on a HA VMware environment which was the most cost effective way of purchasing the product while giving acceptable redundancy.
Product worked well and you could overspec the VM memory and CPU if needed.
Having said that the biggest thing I found with the deployment was "keep it simple" :)

Like with anything it'll depend a lot on your requirements as to what the final cost will be.
Happy to have a chat to discuss if you want, just send me a message direct.

Thanks

Ray

Form technical perspective Forescout offers you the most functions already included in one server. I know other vendors charge for every small additional function. Which features/use cases do you plan to implement? Number of Clients, switches and amount of mirror traffic would be interesting.

Have you looked at PacketFence? Once a few years ago they offered my org a turn-key install at a fraction of what a Cisco NAC solution costs. It was less than 20k if memory serves. Unlimited IP count.

Look @ Aruba Clearpass. More functionality and comes in cheaper.

Are you talking about network access control in Skybox Network Assurance? This seems like it’s for a Forescout appliance?

Hi.. we use Clearpass for public access portal on our wifi.. clearpass is a good NAC product as well.. now that is owned by HP the pricing can ramp up pretty quickly.. we have also looked at ISE but is also pretty complex and pricey. We have Bradford.. affordable and is quite reliable. Check it out..

How much are you asking?

2xCT400010G with one HA pair should cost about $250,000 CAD.

This will be 8000 EP license.

I'm trying to track down some rough costing for you. We focus more on ClearPass, so I had to reach out to some of my colleagues.
