In terms of pricing, it is good for a corporation but they do not cater to small to medium businesses. They have to look at a different pricing structure for small to medium-sized enterprises because the cost is too high. This is compounded for the African market because of the exchange rate. One dollar is equal to approximately 15 rands and if you were to multiply that by the price of the product, it becomes quite costly. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing feed, although you still need to understand the operational impact that it has on an organization from a resource perspective. That needs to be factored into the total cost of ownership.

Its pricing is quite low considering the features they are offering. As compared to other solutions, it is reasonable. They do have professional support. If we need professional support, then there will be additional costs.

The licensing of Forcepoint is quite straightforward. It's based on the number of users. The support fees are a separate cost.

All of the vendors that I know have the same licensing fee — all of them. The ones that I've used, like Forcepoint, Symantec, and Digital Guardian, all have similar licensing, either perpetual or subscription — it depends on what you want. Do you want only endpoint DLP or do you want a DLP suite? Either way, they do have similar licensing.

Pricing is handled by another department. I don't have any information in this area.

Forcepoint DLP is a bit expensive. There are additional fees associated with this solution. Customers are aware in advance and usually opt to include them.

I think it's the most cost-effective and affordable solution compared to other solutions that I have. I have not heard anything bad from customers.

The cost for the product for us is less than $10 per user. We do not pay any additional costs for technical support. Everything is included.

I prefer Forceoint because it is cheaper than Symantec.
