The price of the Palo Alto Networks WildFire license is expensive. When it came time to renew the solution the price doubled.

It depends on the features. Additional features cost additional money as well.

We are on an annual subscription. When we purchased the firewall, we had activated this solutions license for a minimum of one year. The price of the solution is fair.

Pricing could be improved.

They are currently working on sandboxing for an on-premises version rather than a subscription for WildFire through the firewall. The price is a bit higher than the other products such as TrendMicro, or FireEye. We lost an opportunity where the client chose FireEye for the price.

This is an expensive product and the market for Palo Alto in Poland could be much bigger if the pricing was comparable to Fortinet. We have lost a lot of deals to Fortinet over the price issue. As an example, if somebody is satisfied with Fortinet and they only need to renew their subscription then it is difficult to convince them to try a completely new device at a higher price.

Some services require additional licensing. WildFire was one of the services we definitely wanted out of the gate. Suggestion is to determine your requirements of services and map back to the cost of turning on the service.

This solution is very pricey and it depends on the package that you implement. There are sometimes promotions on, which can save on costs.

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.
