Hi,

We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

Please share what you can so you can help your peers.

The licensing module is good. Pricing is one of the reasons we switched to this solution. For smaller businesses, they could probably put one or two features from premium into the regular standard versions. For example, that URL filtering is a pain point for many customers. If they could find a way to scale down that URL and the IPs feature to include it in the standard version, then that would allow them to get more traction and more customers from the small to medium-sized business perspective.

Azure Firewall is quite an expensive product. It can be challenging to work out the price as the fee varies depending on the amount of data that is run with the solution. Only the built-in usage level incurs licensing fees. There are no additional ones.

Azure Firewall is more expensive. If Microsoft can make Azure Firewall cheaper, I can see that all clients will think of using it. One client used FortiGate because it is much cheaper. Some clients ask me for Cisco, but in the cloud estimate, I found its cost is the same as Azure Firewall.

I'm not sure of the exact pricing, however, I do believe it is less expensive than Fortigate. For Fortinet, we pay around $5,000 per year. It offers more, however. It, for example, also improves the intrusion detection system. We bought a Fortinet appliance two years ago and Azure Firewall didn't exist at the time.

Unfortunately, I don't handle the finances or payments for the solution, so I can't compare to others.
