The price of the solution depends on the type of firewall you have from FortiGate. I am satisfied with the price of the solution.

The pricing is good and licensing is paid on a yearly basis. Licensing for FortiClient is included with the VPN and the FortiGate firewall. If we pay for the yearly package that includes the FortiGate firewall, then the FortiClient VPN license is included with it.

We are currently using the free version of the solution. We don't pay a licensing fee to use the solution.

I don't have the licensing schema for the VPN solution because we just purchased the VPN gateway.

It is a yearly subscription license. I don't see a problem with the pricing. Resellers add their markup and then give it to us, but I don't see that as a major challenge. It is fine.

Its pricing is good. One thing that has always attracted us to the Fortinet range of products is that their pricing is very competitive. Our particular licensing is on a yearly basis. However, as part of this project, we did pre-purchase three years of maintenance and support at a fairly significant discount.

The base price should include basic VPN support in addition to Vulnerability scanning, and I think this is beneficial against other solutions. The price is reasonable compared to competitors, it is very good to upgrade to paid EMS + forticlient for the additional features covering Endpoint protection.

Pricing is an area that I would like to see improved, as it could be lower. They offer bundles for one year, two years, or five years. The one year bundle works for me.

Generally, Fortinet is not cheap. The features that are available for free are only for FortiClient VPN clients, not other solutions. It includes web security, antivirus, and one more feature.

The price point again is silver products and that is what I'm trying to work out. So I don't know if that's a bad or a good thing for Forticlient. I don't know where it's priced. I don't know about the price.

The product we are using is not subscription-based. This is a free version. I just downloaded from the Fortinet website and it is free to use.

The cost per port is very less as compared to the other technologies.

Clients need not only to look at the price of the product as a bottom line. Some products offer more as a package, as Fortinet does in this case. Some customers see only dollar signs when there is more to evaluating the value of a product offering than the only cost.

FortiClient is quite reasonably priced. You can get the firewall box rather than just the SSL VPN box. When you purchase extra hardware, you are not restricted in the number of end users. This compares favorably to other solutions such as Cisco AnyConnects or Pulse VPN, where you have to pay extra for the end-user license and it gets quite expensive.

Fortinet requires you to buy a lot of product in order for you to have proper protection.

The price is okay and competitive.

An annual license costs about 1.5 to 3,000 US dollars. There are no additional costs.

Anyone can download this product for free, but you have to have a FortiGate gateway that you are connecting to.

Licensing was free up to ten users and after that, it was pretty reasonable.
