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

There is an annual license required for the use of the Zscaler Cloud Firewall.
There are licensing costs, and I would not say that it's a cheap vendor.
The licensing is on a yearly basis. It is somewhere around 30 or 40 pounds per user for our organization.
Cost is about the same whether it's on-prem or on cloud. Initial cost is higher with an on-prem solution and with cloud there are additional fees for configuring extras.
From our perspective, we're selling three separate packages: Basic, Advanced and Premium. Depending on the requirement of the customer, we offer the package that makes the most sense. With Basic, we provide a very limited feature set. Advanced packages will probably provide some better and more advanced features. Premium will provide everything that Zscaler has to offer. That means URL filtering, sandboxing, endpoint mitigation, etc. I'm not sure of the exact costs from Zscaler's side. The Zscaler pricing, in general, is okay. Once more vendors come into the picture, there will probably be more competition and they may have to reduce their costs. Still, as of right now, it's reasonable.

If you could go back in time, would you change your decision to buy that firewall and why?
