There is either an annual or six-month charge to use this solution. Fortinet FortiMail is cheaper than Proofpoint or Cisco Security, or other email security appliances.

The fees for Fortinet FortiMail can be complicated. However, overall the pricing is fair.

I don't know the price of other products, but the cost of FortiMail is moderate. The customers don't want to haggle. When they see what the solution can do, they are willing to pay for it. They are most likely getting quotes from various companies, and the Fortinet product is the most cost-effective. The performance is very high because they're trying all the products on their site. At the end of the day, they look at the performance and the price, and Fortinet covers all the bases.

There is a license required for this solution and it is on an annual basis. I am satisfied with the price.

In terms of licensing, we are using a virtual machine license for the single virtual server which it runs on. Doing it this way enables us to cut costs by only licensing FortiMail for our exact use case. If you need to expand in future, you can later buy extra licenses per virtual machine.

We're using two products, the FortiSandbox, which is actually the sandbox environment of FortiMail and FortiMail. We're paying about 9,000 Euros per year for those two products. It is pretty cost-effective for Greece. Fortinet is very aggressive with their pricing.

Approximately five years ago the price was low. Now the price is a bit on the high side. I understand it is because the product comes with a vendor license. One vendor can do many things. The price is acceptable for the support license it includes.

We are satisfied with the pricing of this solution. Licenses are based on everyone's needs. If you don't need the full bundle that includes everything, you have options for the small or medium enterprise environments.

There are additional costs to the license fees. The solution is rather expensive.

There are subscription fees but I don't think there is an additional cost. The pricing is not my area of expertise, but clients seem to suggest the license cost is competitive. It depends on capacity and not the number of users.

As far as licensing, we just have to buy the license and then do the renewal which is just like purchasing the first license. There are different choices for subscriptions.

The annual cost is $55,000. There is only the licensing and support cost but aside for that, there are no additional costs.

My company pays around 28.000 Egyptian Pounds per year for this program. It is rather expensive in my opinion.

The licensing model for this solution is better because it is based on the box and not the number of users.
