In a high availability cluster configuration, where the primary FortiGate is working and the secondary is a backup, Fortinet requires us to buy two licenses instead of one whether we are actually using it or not. With other products, you only purchase one license because we only use one license per instance.

We have a yearly subscription that we renew annually.

We renew our contract and license every three years. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees. There is just one cost.

It is not a cheap product. It is not like a Linux or a Genex that you can deploy. It is a hardware appliance, and it is built for a specific reason and reliability. It is an enterprise-class solution. You wouldn't find an SMB investing in something like this.

Its subscription prices are cheaper, and it is not very expensive. From a price perspective, Fortinet is a very well-known security vendor. Subscriptions are very simple. They have a couple of licenses on an appliance, and that's it. The cost is not that big. One license is 40K, which they give with all the products. Another one includes the subscriptions for threat prevention, IPS, sandboxing, etc, which is more than enough.

The solution can be a bit expensive. It's not a product line. We use other devices as well as it's not a one-stop-shop. If you need a firewall, for example, you need to buy another product, like Fortinet. FortiWeb doesn't cover things like firewalls. The license itself is also quite expensive.

I think that ForiWeb is expensive for what they are offering. At the end of the day, when you sell a suite, compliance within the suite is easy to maintain. That is the good part. It is an expensive suite and it is an expensive solution, but it is a manageable one for an enterprise. It should just be cheaper for what they are offering in comparison to other tools on the market.

It is fine now. We had to earlier negotiate the price.

It's an expensive solution, although there are no additional costs.

Due to the situation in Iran with the sanctions, the price of this solution is very expensive.

FortiWeb is more expensive than some competing products.

All our Fortinet pricing is bundled together for different products, like FortiGate, FortiAnalyzer, and FortiWeb. FortiWeb, by itself, is probably around $2,500 to $3,500.

You can set up licensing on a monthly or yearly basis. I'm not sure about pricing.

The solution gives us the best price to performance ratio.

The license cost depends on the size of the box or the size of the solution. It can go from few K Euros to a few hundred thousand Euros a year depending on your size.

The licensing policy is very good. Our customers are very happy with that.
