Palo Alto networks are more expensive than this solution and this is why you will see more products like this one in Mexico. I have been working with the next-generation firewalls by Palo Alto and the license tends to be better. For example, Palo Alto Wildfire, the licensing is more dynamic than Cisco products.

It is necessary to pay for a license in order to use the solution. It is on a yearly basis and the price is high.

I don't know the exact licensing costs. It's not something I deal with directly, and therefore I don't have any access to the information in regards to pricing and payments.

Price is certainly something that the IOS technology has fallen behind the competition on.

The pricing for IOS Security is okay. It is competitive. It costs more when you have got the need to pay for more features. You have to buy more boxes and tie them together to upgrade to the next level.

The solution's costs are quite high. It's a turn-off in terms of actually using it. It's more of an enterprise-level solution. It's not ideal for smaller organizations as the cost to run it would be out of their budgeting capabilities.

Cisco IOS Security is for medium and large enterprises. When we talk about the price as well, it's more suitable for medium and large enterprises, but recently they included a few good SMB options. They have introduced a cheaper version of it in the last year with SMB option, which can be looked into for small enterprises, but it's more suited towards the large enterprises and medium enterprises.

The licensing is on a subscription basis, and it is fairly costly. I would prefer a one-time payment.

The pricing is very expensive. Normally I do a yearly contract; I don't know the exact pricing, but it's around $75,000 USD per year. That's the standard licensing.

Our licensing costs for the solution are on an annual basis. It should be every five years.

The solution is a one-off fee once, it's just a matter of whether we are using IOS security you want to use the IT functionality, you need to have the security licenses.
