Implementing next-generation firewall (NGFW) devices can be a difficult, time-consuming undertaking. Multiple factors may affect the overall cost of deployment, maintenance and upkeep.
As such, enterprises and security-conscious organizations should include the total cost of ownership (TCO) as part of their evaluations, including:
Acquisition costs for NGFW and a central management system (CMS)
Fees paid to the vendor for annual maintenance, support and signature updates
Labor costs for installation, maintenance and upkeep
To better understand these considerations, download the complimentary 2018 NSS Labs Next-Generation Firewall Comparative Report: Total Cost of Ownership.
Achieving strong scores among major vendors, SonicWall NSa 2650 received a ‘Recommended’ rating in part due to its competitive TCO of $4 per protected Mbps.
