Innovating pricing strategy, re-launching ‘3 & Free’ program
SonicWall is listening to its partner community and innovating based on their direct feedback. To offset rising costs industry-wide, SonicWall is evolving its pricing structures to ensure its partners remain successful — both in the short-term and well into the future.
In early December, SonicWall announced the ‘3 & Free’ promotion for select TZ370 and TZ470 models. SonicWall customers need to purchase a three-year license of our most popular Advanced Protection Service Suite (APSS), and they’ll receive an eligible TZ firewall for free. This offering complements the ‘3 & Free’ bundling promotion announced for the NSa 2700 and NSa 3700 in November 2022.
“While other vendors are raising hardware prices as much as 35% in some areas, SonicWall is being proactive to support long-term savings and reduced TCO for customers,” said SonicWall EVP, America Sales Jason Carter. “SonicWall will be limiting price adjustments to one-year security service subscriptions and concurrently is taking the unprecedented step of decreasing costs of two- and three-year security service subscriptions.”
