This is an expensive solution.
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 "expensive" and flexible.
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 cost-effective compared to similar solutions. It fits for the small businesses through to the big businesses.
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.
