It is approximately three million Qatari Riyal ($820,000 USD) for our licensing fees. The cost is approximately six thousand Qatari Riyal ($1,650 USD) per user.
It is simple and cost-effective to purchase through the AWS Marketplace, which provides an easy understanding of the scale of the costs. Our organization purchased it through the AWS Marketplace because it is easier to track when added to our AWS bill and convenient purchasing model. The AWS licensing model is scalable and easy to use, but could do with tiered discounts. I am not sure how well this model will scale when we start to use Auto Scaling with AWS resources.
Purchasing this solution through the AWS Marketplace was secure and quick. We did it as a renewal license for one of our customers. AWS has good prices for a good product.
Purchasing on the AWS Marketplace was easy. We decided to purchase this solution on the AWS Marketplace since we were already there. The pricing is fair.
We did not purchase it through the AWS Marketplace because we have used Trend Micro in the past. We have not compared the pricing and licensing of buying it on the AWS Marketplace.
We are an original partner with AWS, so a couple of customers chose to directly take it from AWS Marketplace. A couple of customers will want us to take care of the billing. So, it's a mixed type of reaction that we receive from the customer. Eventually, for us, it matters that customers are secure. The customers can deploy in their environment and the licensing model goes through our reseller. The price is reasonably good as compared to other products into the market.
Our company chose to procure this product via AWS Marketplace due to regulatory requirements. We mostly use it in the AWS GovCloud.
On an AWS defined scope, it will cheaper than buying the on-premise service. We did a trial for the on-premise version, but we decided to go with the AWS version. We are downsizing our server room, and it didn't make sense to put more machines in there, as we already have workloads in Indianapolis.
With AWS, we get single, consolidated billing. This is the beauty of it; its ease of use. Purchasing on AWS Marketplace is like shopping on Amazon Prime. We do pay-as-you-go pricing, which is good for us. We are working with Trend Micro to see if we can have something similar for on-premise.
