I think the price is fair.

It's expensive.

We use an NFR, not for resale, license because we have a strong relationship with Skybox Security. But Skybox Security sent me yearly support for the license, not monthly. Skybox Security has good pricing. If you need something like Skybox, you would pay more money than for a cybersecurity platform, because you need FireMon for firewalls. For firewalls, you would need a subscription to Cisco Tetration, for example, or for something else. These are more expensive solutions in collaboration. So if you want to save money and save time, use Skybox Security.

Due to the cost of the solution, I've decided to switch products. I'm already paying a lot and I have to pay a subscription each year. I'm looking for another solution that would less money and could provide the same features. The pricing is very expensive. If you have the enterprise version, you have multiple products and multiple versions you need to activate. If you need to do a replacement, for example, you'll have to pay for Skybox professional services in order to support your version. Currently, the licensing costs me about $300 USD for the year. This is a huge amount for my environment.

Pricing is on the higher side. In terms of licensing, you should buy the complete suite rather than buying only the Change Manager. I think Change Manager with Vulnerability Control is something that would be interesting to look at.

The pricing has increased exorbitantly in the last few years, so now it is questionable. Now, it makes me want to review other products. With licensing, the number of network nodes becomes very expensive to the point where you have to rationalize if the tools are warranted anymore. Fully understand the total cost of ownership. They have gone to a new model where you have to replace the hardware every X amount of years at a very substantial cost and fully understand your intended number of nodes. To operate a firewall, you have to pay two licenses, a firewall node and a network node. If you are a reasonable-sized organization, this gets expensive very quickly. We go through an evaluated reseller to purchase the product.

As with anything else, I would love it to be less expensive, but do I think pricing is a good value? Sure. I've had issues with licensing where, when they were expiring and I asked for the updated licenses, I would the wrong ones. I think their process needs to be straightened out a little bit - I don't know if they fixed it already, it has been awhile. It wasn't as straightforward as it could have been. When you get the licenses you just put in the license numbers so it's working. That part is easy. It's getting the correct licenses that can be a little cumbersome.
