The setup cost is high, however, the pricing terms vary based on the size of an organization.

It is essential to validate the costs and have a good representative for Check Point that can provide security in the tools. They need to be able to understand your needs as clients.

Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management is always known as a good solution but an expensive one. When you're using Cisco, Check Point, or Palo Alto, you know that you will pay more, but you know that it will work.

The best advice that can be given is to find a responsible and good partner that can help you with the validation of your security requirements, accompany you, and help you with documentation and support.

Licensing fees are paid on a yearly basis. From a pricing perspective, they are pretty expensive. You can find better offerings on the market.

The license for CloudGuard Posture Management is about $80 a year, and it's based on your cloud footprint, not the number of users. So you could have a million users, and it doesn't matter.

The licensing model is based on the size of your cloud infrastructure. So to estimate what you will pay, you need to count each and every asset. And when I say assets, that means every application, database, server, or virtual network on your cloud infrastructure. I'd like to see more flexibility in their licensing model. It's based on assets, but we all know that assets keep on growing. I would recommend a flexible, upgradeable license, so when you add assets, they can easily bill you or upgrade you.

The price of this solution should be reduced so that it is more affordable to scale - specifically for features like Intelligence Pro.

In the beginning, the price of Dome9 was cheap, whereas now it is not. I haven't gotten the latest pricing, but my advice is that you need to balance it out with your cloud business cases. It all depends on how many machines, servers, and the size of the cloud that you have. It's probably not useful if you have only a few machines and some network security groups to manage them. In this case, it's not something that you need.

The pricing is tremendous and super cheap. It is shockingly cheap for what you get out of it. I am happy with that. I hope that doesn't get reported back and they increase the prices. I love the pricing and the licensing makes sense. It is just assets: The more stuff that you have, the more you pay.

I suggest that you pay attention to the product pricing because while there are no tricks, and the licensing model is transparent, the final numbers may surprise you.

The licensing and costs are straightforward, as they have a baseline of 100 workloads (number of instances) within one license with no additional nor hidden charges. If you want to have 200 workloads under Dome9, then you need to take out two licenses for that. Also, it does not have any impact on cloud billing, as data is shared using the API call. This is well within the limit of free API calls provided by the cloud provider.

Cost is based on number or Workload in case of Prisma & Dome9 For Aquasec it's based on a number of application workloads For Conformity it's based on the number of accounts

It is a very straightforward licensing model that is based on the number of assets you are discovering and managing with the solution.

The primary use case for this solution is associated with a challenge whereby we have multiple cloud computing platforms. We have our past cloud platforms in AWS and ECP. Therefore, we can configure management and policy governance tools to deployment across all sites.
