The pricing of the solution is a bit higher, but it's worth the extra money you will spend because of the protection that you get.

Smaller organizations may find it a bit costly. It is not a cheap solution, simply because of everything that it can do, so there might be a cost barrier for smaller organizations. We pay between $3,000 and $4,000 CAD ($2,200 - $3,000 USD) per year to maintain this solution. There are different charges the depend on the different options, such as WildFire or different virus signatures.

The licensing fees are on an annual basis and there are no costs in addition to the standard fees.

Palo Alto does not require any additional costs to the standard licensing fees, but we have the regular license model. If I just want a firewall, then I need to buy two licenses. If we use a VM base, then I need to buy the VM base license, along with the support package from the provider. However, without the license fee, I need to buy IPS support separately. Other products like Cortex Data Lake support also need to be licensed separately, but that is a wonderful feature. With Palo Alto, I can just go buy whatever extra features I want, and they give me a 30-day free license, so that is useful for me. I can go ahead and buy the product, or if it is not for me anymore, it is free to try. That is a good way to sell their products too. Our subscription runs on a yearly base.

It is a reasonable price compared to other solutions on the market.

The pricing is OK, it is not too expensive.
