The solution should be less expensive to allow more people the opportunity to use it. Some of their competitors are less expensive. There is a license required to use the solution and we purchased an annual license.

Licensing costs are based on the number of users and can be purchased on an annual, three-year or five-year basis. The cost is high compared to other solutions.

The pricing is moderate. It's not the cheapest, or the most expensive. There are various types of licenses. For example, if you are a customer for endpoint prevention, that is a different license. And if you want to cloud prevent, that is a different license. It's flexible. If you need to purchase a full suite, you can purchase it, or if you want only endpoint or cloud or network, you can buy it as a separate command.

We have a license for our clients. However, in my case, I've only used the trial license in my environment.

The price is competitive. Until last year, the price was okay, but it just increased more than 100% this year. There was no justification for that.

Licensing depends on how you plan your deployment. If you have carefully planned it and you've already looked at the storage capacity and how it's going to grow over a period of two to five years, then you'll hardly have any problems or issues. If you have not planned it correctly then you might run into some issues.

In terms of pricing, Symantec DLP works with Oracle Database. Oracle Database licensing is much more expensive than other databases. That might be a drawback for customers. The pricing is on a yearly subscription basis. For the current customer year, we already paid up front as part of the first three years.

The pricing is competitive and not pricey. We also receive corporate discounts.

I wasn't involved in the pricing negotiations but from what I know the pricing is good, it's not too expensive. If you negotiate you can get a good price.

The pricing and licensing are based on per user endpoints.
