The product can be expensive. It's not the cheapest option on the market. However, I do find it to be less expensive than Cisco.

The price of the solution is expensive. They should provide more features to match the high price of the solution.

The licensing costs are too high. They need to become more competitive in that regard. We constantly need to bargain to get better pricing. They tend to take advantage once the product has been sold to us. From a renewal point of view, the price is very high. They are demanding. That itself is creating a bad mark on them. From a cost perspective, I'd rate the solution two out of ten. I am trying to avoid Palo Alto, even though they have a very good solution, specifically due to the cost.

Palo Alto firewalls are very expensive.

This is an expensive solution, although you will get value for the price.

Pricing is a sensitive issue because the cost is high in this market. If the price were reduced then it would be very good because it will be more competitive with vendors such as Fortinet. In fact, I would say that pricing is the weakest point of this solution.

I don't have an idea of what the licensing costs are.

I am actually satisfied with the pricing of Palo Alto even though it is expensive. If you are talking about using products by a leader in the field and it is a bit expensive compared to other vendors, then that is totally fine for me because you are not compromising your security. In many other cases — like if there are budget issues — the companies can always go for Fortinet. It is also a good firewall, but it is cheaper. If you have got the budget to purchase Palo Alto, get it. If you do not have the budget, go for Fortinet or any other firewall.
