I'm not sure of licensing costs, but the price point isn't bad. In addition, you need to buy the hardware. There is also a standard support license, and they offer an advanced security gateway with other intrusion detection, prevention, content filtering, etc. There are some additional options we usually go with, but things like content filtering are hit and miss, and depend on what the client wants.

It is a bit expensive. We have to purchase the license and the reporting part separately, which makes it a bit pricey. This is the main reason why we have thought of moving to another firewall. It would be good if they combine both of these.

For the most part, the solution is very economical.

You need to purchase multiple licenses to manage multiple devices which is cost-prohibitive for the value you would receive.

The price is fair for the solution for the quality you receive.

The product offers very competitive pricing, It's quite good. We find it very reasonable. Users need to pay a licensing fee on a monthly basis.

The pricing is very reasonable. It's quite cost-effective. We purchase a license that renews yearly.

I can't talk about specifics, but purchasing the product is an upfront capital expense for maintenance as well as for the product itself so I can't amortize that down to a monthly or annual figure because the products are also very diverse in price depending on the usage or the package that you get. There are a very broad number of products within the TZ series from the very low end to the medium range. You've got many different models to choose from at different price points. On top of that, you've got the maintenance agreements that are relatively priced based on the product, so that is a variable too. I know that they are very competitive in pricing compared to other solutions on the market.

License renewals come in around $35,000 to $45,000. That's the retail price.

The pricing is where you might lose to WatchGuard now. I'm looking into moving some parts over to WatchGuard because they are on the small business side. But if you compare the TZ300 and 400 series against WatchGuard series, they are the same, but there is a price difference between them.

The product pricing is relatively good, compared to other products, including the licenses. However, if you do not get support then the cost of the outlay is not really relevant.

The pricing was a factor for us, and we felt that the price was good. The licensing cost is on an annual basis, and there are no additional costs.

SonicWall has authorized distributors in our country. They have about two or three distributors in the country, so it makes it a bit easier. What we do is to request a quotation from these distributors, then we do a value for money analysis and see which one of them is giving us a competitive price. Getting licenses in our country, Ghana, is not easy. Though, once we have them, adding them is quick (about a day). Overall, the cost is great.
