The price of the solution is high for the license and in general.

It's about $55 per license on a yearly basis.

For basic needs, the solution isn't very expensive. However, as you grow more complex in your needs, the more you use, the more costly it can get. The licensing is typically for one year. There's a one-time installation. If you would like to continue with the service, you can continue. There's no need to install and reinstall.

The pricing is okay, although direct support can be expensive.

Every customer has to pay for a license because it doesn't work with what you get from a managed services provider. It's quite expensive, and they can't sell it for less than 200 euros a license. It's the lowest license price we can get from them.

Its pricing is kind of in line with its competitors and everybody else out there.

The pricing is actually very reasonable. Palo Alto is very invested in some commercial endeavors and they have simplified their license. A team license can be used on-cloud, or on-prem. We have not faced segregation on any technologies, so a simple license gets any user anywhere without limitations. It is easy to increase the license as it's a cloud service. You just speak to your account manager and they can increase the licenses for you.

We pay about $50,000 USD per year for a bundle that includes Cortex XDR.

The setup costs are a bit higher than some other solutions. Overall it is a little bit expensive, I think. If we could get it for around a 10% discount then that would be a better price point for us. For our pricing plan, we are not on a subscription, so we do not have to pay every month. We have a yearly license for the product. The approximate amount we pay per license is around $80 per user per year.

Our license runs on a monthly basis with a recurring monthly charge. If you want additional options like secure remote access with policies, that requires an additional cost. Palo Alto Networks Traps does not apply secure remote access to devices without policies, which we are implementing. If you want to apply more policies, like an anti-virus program, anti-malware, or configurations for using a VPN on remote connections, that would also be an additional cost. We're not doing that.

When we first bought it, it was a bit expensive, but it was worth it. The licensing was straightforward.

It is cost-effective compared to similar solutions. It fits for the small businesses through to the big businesses.

We did not negotiate the price because the solution did not fulfill our requirements. But the price was fine. I don't know how it would compare with Symantec because I negotiated a lot with Symantec. I don't know what kind of negotiation I could have done with Palo Alto.

It is "expensive" and flexible.

We didn't have to pay any additional fee for the cloud instance. It just came with the renewal, which was nice.

The pricing seems fair, and I do like the licensing model. You use wherever they are, and it is elastic. So, if you have 1100 computers today, you can license that. Therefore, as long as you're below your licensing cap, you're fine.

I feel it is fairly priced.
