We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

The pricing is reasonable. Of course, it could always technically be cheaper, however, as a company that is a systems integrator, we tend to get more margin.
McAfee Complete Data Protection is a little bit expensive. The price could be lower. In regard to data loss prevention, we have different licensing.
I think the price could be a little bit less.
The pricing is better than that of some competing products.
Data protection solutions are quite expensive, which is expected. I have had customers complain about the licensing costs of various solutions. Where I actually have issues with cost would be in the cloud. If you look at the MVISION portfolio, you see that the device control is not the same as on-premises. I am not sure which parts of the MVISION products actually have device controls with the encryption. The problem is that after seeing that single product within MVISION, in order to access it from the cloud, you still have to buy the full version of it. As we are on-prem and just beginning testing on the cloud, I am not exactly sure of the capabilities. I think that part of the pricing is confusing to a lot of end-users. When they purchase the license from us they see that they have device control. But when I get to the cloud, there is no device control. As resellers, that puts us in a bad place, because we have to explain it to the customer. They have to purchase something additional for device protection that they thought they already had. I think there was no communication about that change in the licensing when it was changed over to the cloud. So we had to take the initiative in doing other things when coaching our customers. There is always back and forth when doing consultations with the customers before we finally come to a configuration that is the right one for the client. I look at information online and then see they have device control on the cloud but then there is a question as to why the client is using device control in certain circumstances. There is a question as to why they are putting certain data on the cloud even. Some do not understand best practices and that putting data on the cloud is not the solution they want anyway.
This solution is reasonably priced.
I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
The price is good, it's a low-cost solution.
