We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
Please share what you can so you can help your peers.
Currently, the pricing is quite reasonable. We have no complaints when it comes to the cost of the solution.
There is a different team the deals with pricing, licensing, and subscriptions. I don't have any knowledge as to the overall costs.
The solution is expensive. it is not a cheap option. The DefensePro is not a cost-effective solution. It's very expensive. I have a lot of schools - K through 12 school districts. They want DDoS protection. When you're comparing it with a cloud service, which is a new emergent thing, a lot of ISPs offer it. However, if customers want to get their own DDoS protection, you have Cloudflare, who I think is Radware's biggest competitor, and they offer everything in the cloud. If you need something on-premises, it's going to be more expensive. I did a price comparison between Cloudflare and this product, the three gig model, which is the minimum. What we needed was way too expensive, way over the budget for our client.
The price was well over six figures. There are ongoing monthly costs for when they monitor the line and then if you activate the service then there is an additional cost. Essentially, you hold them with a retainer fee, and then when you go active, there could be an additional cost associated.
The pricing is based on the amount of network traffic and the number of packets being inspected.
The Radware DefensePro was bundled together with our security platform.
The product isn't cheap but it is also not expensive. It is affordable. It does the job we need it to do well. We lease on a yearly basis.
I'm researching DDoS solutions, and have been looking at F5 and Radware. Are there any other solutions I should be considering? Please also share insights from Gartner.
