We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
Please share what you can so you can help your peers.
We extend the license yearly and the prices, because of the sanctions, are expensive and costs much more compared to other solutions. It's pricey compared to other locations where there are representatives and you can buy directly from them.
The price of this solution is more than other products, but it's stable, and the technical support is better than I have seen with others.
There was no additional licensing cost because there were no IPS services. It was just a firewall IP circuit router so they have the default licensing. We just need to renew the support yearly.
While the price of support is expensive, the price of the solution, itself, is not. The problem came about when we tried switching to Cisco and discontinued our support. In order to subscribe again later, we had to pay a reinstatement fee. We found out that if you have not used the product for a certain period of time, you have to pay for this period before paying for a new year of support. Say, for example, that you don't pay for support for one year. That year must be paid for, first, before getting support. That is why I am saying that support is expensive, in my opinion.
The pricing is perhaps half to around forty percent of Cisco.
Licensing which covers maintenance is on an annual basis. Our customers are on one-year contracts. There are additional cost above and beyond the standard licensing fees.
The direct support with Juniper is expensive. When you stop using the solution and miss one year of payments, if you want the support back on a specific node, they ask you to pay for the year that you haven't used the node.
In terms of pricing, Juniper is in the middle. The most expensive firewall is Palo Alto. If a customer wants the cheapest price they should go for FortiGate. Juniper is in between these products.
It has a low price.
It is not that expensive.
Small enterprises or telco have variant licenses, and this licensing model should be improved.
Pricing is good. Most of the costs are in the UTM (IDS/IPS, virus scanning, etc.) subscription. Palo Alto was nice, but much more expensive.
