We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

Most of our clients will opt for us to manage the setup for them because the security is fairly new. Most of our customers feel it is better to outsource the management of security services for their hardware so they can focus on the business. We have our own team of security experts that are fully trained in Fortinet. It's easier for them to carry out the setup for the customers. The relationship between the customer and our company is by SNA (social network analysis), so there are fewer configuration errors and instances where the configuration hasn't been carried out correctly and the product is still not working well for the customer, so most companies prefer us to do it for them.
The solution is not expensive at all.
There are additional costs that aren't included in the licensing fee.
The pricing on the solution is okay; it's not too expensive.
The pricing is okay, but the licensing can be confusing. For example, if you purchase FortiSandbox, there are three different types of licensing. They have a separate FortiSandbox for the cloud, and for FortiGate. It can be quite confusing. For being an existing FortiGate customer, they started by giving me one year for free, then I started renewing.
There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.
