Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "Licenses are perpetual but can come with renewable support."
  • "We might have paid in the ballpark of $20,000 yearly for our licenses. I do not recall there being other fees over and above the standard licensing fee."
  • "They base the license on the number of devices, which is quite misleading."
  • "The cost of the solution depends on the customer's requirement because the customer is asking for different integration with a different product. Forescout Platform's price would start to get a bit higher. However, overall the price is a little expensive. It's can fit within the customer budget."
  • "The price of the solution is reasonable. We have paid for the license for five years. We have integration with Symantec AV for orchestration, and we have an additional license."
  • "Forescout is more expensive than Cisco because Cisco gives high discounts."
  • "We have a very clear licensing model for business. I don't have to have a Ph.D. to be able to understand the licensing model as you might need for other solutions. If I know exactly what we want, it can tell you which license you need. The solution is easy for purchasing, ordering, and ease of deployment as well."
  • "There are no additional costs that I am aware of."
