I don't have any issue with the pricing of this solution. I am only involved with the technical portion of it.

There are various plans available for Fortinet FortiWeb Cloud WAF as a Service, including a trial version. You are only charged by the total data transferred, and there are hourly charges for the protected web application.

Its price is fair. We have done a couple of deals where they were able to give some kind of discount to the customers. The price was initially high for the customers, but after a couple of negotiations, it came within their budget. They were happy with that.

F5's licensing varies. I do not know exactly what the individual WAF component costs because they bundle up services and the bundle is what I pay for. I do not pay for individual components.

It's more expensive than other solutions and depending on the modules, there can be additional fees.

Licensing fees for this solution are paid on a yearly basis.

The solution isn't too expensive. The license allows you to license what you need and leave out what you don't need.

After buying the program, you just pay for the support every year.

I think the price is very high. This is what I hear from the customers. Sometimes we cannot sell the product because it is a higher price.

I think it's a good product but the F5 uses shells, so the people who want to work with the device have to be pro in Linux. If they can put everything in the UI so every regular security engineer can work with it, it's fabulous.

F5 Advanced WAF is not a cheap product.
