We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
Please share what you can so you can help your peers.
I am not sure that I can give any exact advice as to the pricing because it will be different for each customer and for each solution. There are multiple variations of the product and the cost varies according to that. There really is no fixed cost because there are a lot of components that clients can choose from to include in their installations and, in the end, the cost varies based on which components a company selects. It all depends on the number of features you want on a particular server. If you want only anti-malware, then the cost will be calculated based on the anti-malware only. If you want to add threat prevention and Virtual Batching, then you will have additional costs. If you want to add to that with application control and a firewall, then again the cost will be still more. The cost varies according to the features that you select on the server you are protecting.
The pricing of the solution is reasonable. Often, Trend Micro will quote a price, and if you say it's too much, at the last minute they will reduce the offer dramatically. There are no additional costs over and above the licensing.
If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Trend Micro ServerProtect, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
