As a value proposition, the solution is an expensive one but the benefits of having it as a cost-benefit analysis to prevent intrusion, breaches, inappropriate access, is warranted. So I would venture to say that what they're offering is expensive but in long-term benefits, it's probably cheaper than having that information exposed through a breach or the wrong people internally getting access to it. There's a lot of value, although it's a very expensive solution. Total cost is rarely just the cost of a license. There's also hardware, staff, the cost of a downtime window or a defect in the application so there are additional costs beyond the application itself. And that would be true with any application I've ever worked with in my 31-year career.
