Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We are paying around 30K per year."
  • "It is much more competitively priced. Axway is probably three or four times more expensive than Globalscape. I like the server-based license. It's easier to manage than a seat license, which our previous product Axway had. Axway's license model is to charge by the account while Globalscape's model is by the server. It is much simpler and much easier when audit time comes."
  • "A large factor in our decision to go with Globalscape was the price."
  • "It is a very good product in terms of purchase. It didn't cost that much, even with the way we had scaled and architecturally put things in place. It is definitely comparable to other products."
  • "Globalscape is not cheap, but you get what you pay for. The cost is worth the value of the product. What you're getting is a good, stable solution that does a lot."
  • "Maintenance and services for Globalscape EFT have an annual price tag, and it is not cheap."
  • "The on-prem licensing is very good. It's a perpetual license and I would advise others to purchase that license. That way, you don't have to pay yearly."
  • "The solution is reasonably priced in comparison to other products."
