The licensing is on an annual basis and calculated on the set up number. Of course, the licensing cost could be less but it's not too bad and is quite nicely priced. With Centreon or Splunk you just pay for the use but if we compare the cost of FortiSIEM with Splunk, it's less than half the price.

All of our customers find the solution expensive. It's not a cheap option. I don't know the exact cost of the solution as I don't directly handle the licensing.

There is a licensing scheme for every case. There are three licensing schemes that we can choose from.

If you are comparing the product to Cisco's solutions, it's very cheap and moderately priced. It's affordable. At the same time, it's a very effective solution. It's affordable and it works well.

The solution is very cost-effective compared to competitors. We just need to pay licensing and support costs. There aren't added costs beyond that.

Pricing is acceptable for more than 90% of our customers, as they normally get discounts.

Licensing is a one time cost. If you want to enable different modules then there will be additional costs.

If we do an overall comparison with other products and also count additional licenses, which are necessary for other products, then the prices are comparative. If we just leave it at base prices, for example, Splunk: Splunk is cheaper, but if you also count the price for licenses, reports, and other things - especially the megabytes and gigabytes of the lock data that you need - then it comes up to a much higher price than you have to pay for FortiSIEM which already includes these things in a base version.

We bought the perpetual license, so we own the product, but there is a three-year support renewal fee for that.
