Licensing fees are paid on a yearly basis.
We have Cisco ELA, it's an enterprise agreement, which covers everything under security, that is offered by Cisco Umbrella. With this, we have the complete Cisco Umbrella portfolio. We have everything related to security from Cisco Umbrella. This also includes the Cisco Umbrella suites. We are paying yearly for all of the Cisco Umbrella applications and appliances. Cisco has a model called ELA. With ELA, if you buy the solution you will have the complete security portfolio and you can pay it yearly or after three years, it depends on the contract. It's a subscription-based solution. If you're running multiple solutions it is more cost-effective. For example, currently we have Cisco Umbrella, IronPort, WSA, Cisco CWS Cloud, and we have Cisco's FTD solution. If we were running these solutions separately it would be more expensive. If you are doing a VM deployment and you have a VM appliance, you will need some compute. The only additional cost will be for a server.
I have no idea about cost.
There is a one-time cost of approximately $800 USD per user, and then a yearly support fee of about $50 per user. Our fees end up being about $150,000 USD per year.
Our costs were negotiated, and they are okay.
Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis.
The price could be lower.
It needs a better price point.
The product is pricey compared to Cisco Firepower.
