We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

I'd advise users to bundle the things they want; so they get a cheaper offer.
The cost is a bit high but it is worth it.
Check Point IPS license is a must-have, and users need to make sure the database gets updated on daily basis after every 2 hours as per the defined configuration (which helps to get maximum protection). The configuration is very simple and effective if you refer to the configuration guide properly.
The module has a considerable cost but you can save by purchasing a package with several modules instead of making a single purchase. The implementation has a high initial and management cost.
The pricing for Check Point IPS is competitive and brings good value for the money.
Enabling IPS does not require any additional license purchase from OEM, as it comes by default with the NGFW bundle. This blade/module can be enabled based on the requirement and can be pushed to the security gateway.
The price of this product should be reduced.
Compared to Firepower, the pricing for IPS is competitive. It's in line with Firepower and I think it's even a bit cheaper. Pricing is competitive. Licensing is per-device. When we renew the firewall content, we buy the IPS license for each firewall where we want to deploy it.
Reg. cost and licensing part out procurement team taking care.
The overall cost of the solution is really high. You should properly scale the setup you are planning to purchase. The licensing model is simple, but some of the software blades are not included into the default bundles and should be purchased separately - pay attention to that.
This is an expensive solution. I am not exactly sure of the pricing because we have a package deal that has the licenses included. I think that the price of support is around $40,000 USD or $50,000 USD per year. How it works is that we license a pair of virtual CPU cores, as well as the firewall, and then the IPS is included along with the antivirus and additional products.
How do you or your organization use this solution?
