We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The price of Cisco Umbrella is a little higher than similar solutions, like Gateway.""There are three models for licensing with different feature sets.""Cisco uses subscription models for the pricing and there are three subscription plans.""When talking about Cisco solutions in general there pricing model is horrible. For example, you can sell a Meraki-based solution, but if the customer starts shopping around, someone is going to have access to the pricing at a level that you cannot compete because they do not have uniform pricing. Not everybody gets fair pricing. Unless you are one of the real major corporations selling the solution your ability to compete is impossible. Cisco will acknowledge the situation and assure you next time it will be in your favor but it never becomes favorable for you. Cisco is not very good in this regard. However, Umbrella is good.""In the region I'm from, that of EMAR, Europe, the Middle East, Eastern Asia and Africa, our organizations do not have many liquid cash assets, so the price could be better.""It has a reasonable price. It is certainly not as expensive as it used to be. It is in line with other offerings on the market. There are a number of different flavors of Umbrella. They could bring Umbrella SIG down a bit because its price is a little bit high for what it does, but I also understand why its price is high.""The price could be lower.""There is a subscription cost."

"Overall, I am not aware of the option to pay for one time use of Forcepoint Secure Web Gateway.""The price of this solution is reasonable.""The licensing is not expensive.""The price of this product should be reduced to make it more competitive.""Licensing is flexible. License pricing information is based on the customer, their environment, and on the future approach.""The solution is priced a little high compare to similar solutions."
