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

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This solution is expensive and other solutions, such as FortiGate, are cheaper.""The price of Firepower is not bad compared to other products.""When we purchased the firewall, we had to take the security license for IPS, malware protection, and VPN. If we are using high availability, we have to take a license for that. We also have to pay for hardware support and technical support. Its licensing is on a yearly basis.""Its price is in the middle range. Both Firepower and FortiGate are not cheap. Palo Alto and Check Point are the cheapest ones. I don't remember any costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.""I am happy with the product in general, including the pricing.""Cisco pricing is premium. However, they gave us a 50 to 60 percent discount.""Cisco is not for a small mom-and-pop shop because of the cost, but if you're in a regulated industry where a breach could cost you a million dollars, it's a bargain.""The solution was chosen because of its price compared to other similar solutions."

"It depends on the features. Additional features cost additional money as well.""The price of the Palo Alto Networks WildFire license is expensive. When it came time to renew the solution the price doubled.""We are on an annual subscription. When we purchased the firewall, we had activated this solutions license for a minimum of one year. The price of the solution is fair.""The price is a bit higher than the other products such as TrendMicro, or FireEye.""WildFire is a little bit pricey. Sometimes it's difficult to sell it to customers at the current price.""The solution is overpriced.""This is an expensive product and the market for Palo Alto in Poland could be much bigger if the pricing was comparable to Fortinet.""I think they should lower the price of this solution"
