It's an expensive product. The price could be reduced. Customers need to pay for a license along with the appliance. Licensing is on a yearly basis.
This is not the cheapest option. The solution is quite expensive.
In terms of price, TippingPoint is not a cheap solution. It is not a very costly solution, but comparatively it is more. When you purchase TippingPoint, you're purchasing their subscription which gives IPS database updates. They bundle everything together. That includes the warranty and extended warranty of the box, along with the support subscription to speak to tech support, or the IPS database, signature application, all those things are provided. Almost all those things are bundled together. They bundle all the requests and licensing. We need to go back to them to ask for additional licenses or something like that, because in my department we cannot just go back to the client and tell them, okay, these are the things you need to purchase. It is impossible. So in the beginning of the process, when we sell the solution to our client, we always bundle all the necessary licensing so that it can be used whenever it is required. On a scale of one to ten I would give TippingPoint NGIPS an eight.
Bear in mind that if you've made the deal registration, follow it and work in that account that it only gives you a chance to grab this deal.
