It is fair. For cloud environments, it can be expensive. The model adopted to use as licensing for the cloud environment should be reviewed since it sometimes can increase the value of the service/product in an unexpected way. For example, they should instead use the amount of instances, which should just take into consideration the number of Security Groups and ACLs.

When it comes to the cost of support and licensing, it is much cheaper than other competing products.

Cost is based on firewall. There are bundles, e.g., virtual firewalls might make the solution cheaper. The licensing scheme should be done in a simpler way. For example, if we delete a firewall and want to add a new one, then the license doesn't get freed up automatically. You have to request a new license to customer support and install it. If you are testing new implementations, this can be cumbersome.

The initial cost was high for us, but we have always been behind the tech curve and cost has always been the limiting factor. That attitude has changed. Now, we look for the best, not simply the cheapest.

Licensing is very easy to set up. The pricing is relative to how you want to expand and harden your network security.

The price is within the standard of security products.

Pricing is great if you have a small number of large firewalls, otherwise, it does not bring ROI.

I propose to purchase licenses for all of the networking devices in the network, because if not all of the devices are integrated then the query of particular access cannot be discovered entirely.

My advice is to please make sure that you evaluate other competitive products before choosing this solution. The price is high but the support is extremely poor, so keep that in mind before choosing this product.

AlgoSec is not much more expensive compared to other products available in the market.

Initial setup was not that hard. Vendor did this for us. Licensing depends on how many firewalls your company has. They have license options for small to big customers depending on the network. Price is fair for Licensing and Product.

Licenses are provided by firewall and routers. Do not underestimate the number of routers because the price can be significantly reduced as you buy more licenses. Same if you go for more than one product (i.e. FireFlow, BusinessFlow)

My advice is that you must do a POC and show value.

I would start with only a few firewalls and then grow. You can get your feet wet and add more firewalls in next year's budget.

The pricing for this solution is not cheap, but we get a good value for what we pay. We get free time to work on other projects and it facilitates our daily operations.

The setup for this solution is not very costly. The licensing is very easy to set up, with flexible licensing methods such as subscription and perpetual. The pricing itself is also flexible, with it being related to the number of devices and applications.

I do not have much information on the pricing, as I wasn't part of the actual procurement process. I was told that the pricing and licensing was comparatively fair.

Setup is easy; we use a VM to run it. Having knowledge in Linux is not a requirement but helps when required to update the software. Also, ensure the reseller has the ability to escalate any issues in case they can't fix it for you. Your licensing should cover the support of the product.

Explore the possibility of running on a VM instead of dedicated hardware.

I am a security engineer and from my point, I would say setup is without complications. Pricing and licensing is taken care of by my senior management so I cannot comment on it.

I wasn't part of the setup cost. Pricing and licensing seem fair. Licensing depends on how big your organization is. We haven't had any issues with purchasing more licenses for our growth.

We also purchased AlgoSec's FireFlow tool. We have had challenges getting value from it, and it is because the scope of this tool is very broad compared to Analyzer. In hindsight, we should have created a formal project and management backing to ensure success with this tool. The scope of a Fireflow implementation touches many organizations and we did not have an appreciation of the need for involvement of so many.
