Technical support is included in the subscription package. But if, during the subscription, our clients want to include the professional services of a Digital Guardian engineer, the price changes. They could use professional services or bundled services. I rate the solution's pricing an eight out of ten because Digital Guardian is expensive. However, the price is generally expensive because Digital Guardian is a DLP solution.

The solution offers yearly subscriptions. It is expensive compared to other vendors. There are no additional costs unless customers want advanced-level support. Support is not included.

As a security product, we do have to procure the licensing to use it, however. I’m unsure as to what it actually costs. I don’t handle that aspect.

For the price in the market, it is a little bit higher than Symantec and Forcepoint. However, I believe, especially in the manufacturing industry, it is the only solution that makes sense for them. If an organization really wants to do the data loss prevention, there's no other choice.

Our customers are happy with the pricing. There are additional costs if you use support contracts directly to Digital Guardian, so they do have professional services. These add-ons are helpful in building out rules, or in the event that the client has custom templated data. The professional services help to create the regular expression engine to detect that data. So, they do have professional services to actually help create these custom data cost-efficient rules.

Pricing and licensing I know mostly for the old versions of Digital Guardian. Now mostly DLP and other security solutions have subscription licensing. Digital Guardian has both, subscription and perpetual licenses, but I think when everything (all technologies) will go to the cloud they will only offer subscriptions. The vendors need to pay to cloud services like Amazon. They will need more money for that because Digital Guardian has the subscription linked to the cloud service. If I compare Digital Guardian with Symantec, the license cost is lower, but McAfee can be cheaper than Digital Guardian. It depends on how many licenses you plan to buy and how big the project is. The cost is not so high as Symantec, but not as cheap as McAfee. They can easily sell the solution for price. It is not the cheapest EOP solution. It's in the middle of the prices.
