I believe that we are entitled to a one-year extension on our licensing.

When you compare the price with other products, it's quite cost-effective. But the problem is always after, let's say, two years or three years later because they are not able to provide updates or patches very quickly.

The price of the license of this solution is high.

The licensing was a cause of concern for us. The price ended up being quite high. We weren't expecting it.

I don't deal with the licensing process, so I can't speak to the pricing of the solution. I am unsure as to if it is too expensive or not.

The pricing is okay, however, support comes as a separate contract, and, if it expires, it can cause issues like what we are facing right now, where you need support and you don't have a contract in place and therefore can't get the help you require. It's costly, in terms of the support contract. We'd prefer a solution that allowed us toe update or upgrade incrementally and had the support there and ready to go. In our case, as well, it's a whole setup and not just an appliance, which is maybe why the pricing is so high and why we are facing difficulties.

Licensing fees are billed on an annual basis.
