Overall, I am not aware of the option to pay for one time use of Forcepoint Secure Web Gateway. We sometimes take out a monthly subscription to the product but prefer to do so on an annual basis.

Licensing cost is also dependent on the number of licenses. When users increase from 100 to 500 or from 1,000 or even 20,000, that licensing cost automatically decreases. And if there is a limited license, you can say there is a fixed price, for use of the licensing. Licensing is flexible. License pricing information is based on the customer, their environment, and on the future approach. For example, are they're going to move forward with this environment? Will they be increasing their system to more users? There are additional costs for URL filtering, Web isolation, and CASB integration. For the normal scenarios, if I am talking about URL filtering, there is no additional component for that. There's a single license, the standard license for the URL filtering and if you want to add web isolation, that is definitely something you need to pay more for. Even if you want to increase your storage limit for the log, you definitely need to pay for the storage as well. To start with, the retention period is 90 days.

The price of this product should be reduced to make it more competitive.

The pricing of the solution is okay. We pay licensing fees but the cost depends on the package that we take. There are no other hidden costs.

The pricing on Forcepoint Web Security is fair. Fair pricing at current market rates, if you are comparing with the competition. Forcepoint Web Security is better than Fortinet because Fortinet is free. They still come under the enterprise level of security implementation though.
