There’s more to the cost of a firewall purchase than just the list price. Make sure the vendor quote takes into account any professional service time it provides, and factor in your own team’s time to implement the product. NGFWs support more complex rules than other firewalls, and this often translates into needing more admin time to set up and test those rules. Also, does the vendor have package pricing for getting their product up and running in a company like yours?
