The pricing could be lower.
The pricing has improved with the newer generation of their Firewalls, but the price could always be lower. In comparison with other solutions, I believe they're quite competitive.
If you want to have all of the good features then you have to pay extra for licensing.
It is an expensive solution and I would like to see a drop in price.
Compared to other security offerings, Palo Alto is very expensive. Palo Alto also doesn't offer many discounts. They may discount as much as 15%. However, in comparison, Cisco can give a discount of up to 85%.
The pricing is a bit higher than the competition, but it's okay. The cost seems cheaper than Cisco's Firepower.
We take licensing on a yearly basis. Palo Alto provides a straightforward cost structure on the annual plan.
It's not too expensive. It's a more powerful tool for IT companies that need a next-generation tool.
The pricing and the licensing are pretty competitive at this stage. As a reseller, I would like to see the price come down a little bit so I can compete better against other firewalls because we do that all the time. Especially on these smaller firewalls and so on, we need to be a bit more competitive. Palo Alto is a company that focuses more on the high endS, high-speed class type of massive organizations and firewalls and so on, which is why they are the most scalable firewall. In Africa, the organizations tend to be smaller than you would get in Europe, the USA, China and those types of places so we tend to sell more of the smaller firewalls. Palo Alto's smallest firewall at this stage is very expensive which makes it difficult, but then again it's just not the area that they're really playing in. It still outperforms any of the other firewalls.
