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

One problem with Tenable is its pricing policy. Optimal results can be achieved with Greenbone Solutions which has much more friendly pricing policies.
In general, it is extremely expensive. If they have a higher price, that's fine, but if there were one or two solutions where you can buy something for a cheaper price then that would make sense for many users. I understand why it's expensive, but it would be good to have a limited solution with cheaper prices. There are different solutions for purchasing Nessus, which is not possible with Datadog.
The price is reasonable.
We incurred a single cost for a perpetual license, although I cannot comment on the price as this is above my management level.
We have a subscription, the licensing fees are paid yearly, and I am using the latest version. The pricing is fine, but it could be cheaper.
We pay approximately $2,500 on a yearly basis. We do not pay any fees in addition to the standard licensing costs.
Nowadays, your vulnerability applications are going to be kind of pricey because lots of them, including Rapid7, are based upon a base price, but then they add in the nodes. That's where they get you. If you're a big network, obviously, you need to scan everything. Therefore, it's going to be costly. The risk and insurance money associated with having ransomware on my networks is going to cost me more money, time, and marketing than the price of the tool. That's why I'm speaking only as an information security officer to security operations. This is the tool that is there in my toolbox to say whether we vulnerable or not. At this point, I don't care about how much it costs my company to have it because if I wasn't able to report it and we got ransomware, then who cares? I'm probably going to be out of business because it happened. That's why I don't care about the price. I have it, and I could use it effectively and do my report. At the end of the day, even if we get ransomware, as long as I reported it, followed my protocol, and put in the change, irrespective of whether it was ignored or denied, I did my job.
I don't have any information when it comes to the cost of the solution. It's not part of my job to deal with billing or payments, so I don't have any visibility on the cost structure.
Start small, learn about your problems/fixing time and grow up gradually.
We bought a one-year license. We are now preparing a new budget for next year and, given our experience with Nessus, we plan to continue with it for next year. We are satisfied with it. It's the best option for small banks. For us, here in Bosnia, a small bank would have about 150 to 250 employees, with 20 to 30 branches throughout the country. The biggest bank here has more than 2,000 and maybe as many as 3,000 employees.
Our licensing is on a yearly basis but we did a three-year deal. It is a fixed cost to cover a certain number of hosts or assets. There are no additional costs to the standard licensing fees.
The costs are not high, considering all the support and service offered by Tenable.
I think the price is fairly affordable. It provides a license that is fair.
The price of Tenable Nessus is much more competitive versus other solutions on the market.
My advice when choosing a vendor is to always consider: * Trustworthiness * Quality * Price
Which do you use and why?
