Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The costs are standard. We pay around $1,600 yearly."
  • "All our Fortinet pricing is bundled together for different products, like FortiGate, FortiAnalyzer, and FortiWeb. FortiWeb, by itself, is probably around $2,500 to $3,500."
  • "FortiWeb is more expensive than some competing products."
  • "Due to the situation in Iran with the sanctions, the price of this solution is very expensive."
  • "It's an expensive solution, although there are no additional costs."
  • "It is fine now. We had to earlier negotiate the price."
  • "It is an expensive suite and it is an expensive solution, but it is a manageable one for an enterprise."
  • "Its subscription prices are cheaper, and it is not very expensive. From a price perspective, Fortinet is a very well-known security vendor. Subscriptions are very simple. They have a couple of licenses on an appliance, and that's it. The cost is not that big. One license is 40K, which they give with all the products. Another one includes the subscriptions for threat prevention, IPS, sandboxing, etc, which is more than enough."

  • "This is an expensive solution and the price should be reduced."
  • "The price of the solution is reasonable and it requires a license."
  • "It is quite expensive. We wanted it in my former organization, but the price was very high. So, we couldn't purchase it. I moved to a different organization, and this organization has purchased it."
