Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) and Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) are two emerging technologies that offer businesses a cost-effective, agile, and secure way to connect their branch offices, remote workers, and cloud services. But with so many vendors and pricing models out there, it can be overwhelming for your team to choose the right solution that meets your needs and budget.
As a vendor for CATO Networks‘ SASE SD-WAN service, we, at IPknowledge, understand that every customer has unique requirements and therefore needs a tailored pricing strategy. Unfortunately, we noticed that the pricing in our industry is often ambiguous and hidden, which can make customers hesitant to take the first step. That’s why our team got together to come up with a plan to better connect with our customers and make pricing more transparent and accessible.
That’s why we decided to build our SASE SD-WAN Price Calculator. This calculator is a free online tool that enables your team to estimate the subscription cost of Cato’s SASE SD-WAN platform based on what your network requirements are.
Here’s how our SASE SD-WAN Price Calculator can help your business:
1. It provides transparency and clarity in pricing
The price calculator takes into account various factors such as the number of sites, users, and bandwidth requirements, as well as the features, services, and add-ons, to provide an accurate estimate of the monthly subscription fee and the total contract value. This ensures you have a clear understanding of the subscription costs involved and can make informed decisions.
2. It simplifies the evaluation process
We understand the pressure behind directly contacting a sales representative for a quote. Instead of a lengthy proposal process, you can use the calculator to evaluate the SASE SD-WAN solution on your own terms and speed. The tool provides a detailed breakdown of the costs and benefits, which will allow you to compare Cato’s pricing with other vendors and determine the price and service value proposition.
3. It saves time and resources
Worried you are going to have to enter all the specifics? The price calculator is designed to be quick and easy to use, where you only need to input a few basic details to receive an estimate. This can save time and resources for both of us if you decide this is not the right time to implement SASE SD-WAN in your organization.
4. It enables customization and scalability
Cato’s SASE SD-WAN platform is designed to be flexible and scalable, allowing businesses to add or remove features as needed. The price calculator takes into account the specific requirements, enabling you to customize the platform and estimate the costs accordingly. This ensures that you only pay for the services you need and can scale up or down as your organization’s needs change.
5. It provides you with multiple estimates
With the Price Calculator, you have the flexibility to change your mind even after receiving a proposal. The tool is completely free to use and allows you to generate multiple proposals based on different requirements such as bandwidth, sockets, number of sites, SDP users, and add-ons. You can compare and choose the proposal that best suits your needs before contacting us for a demo or a chat.
By providing transparency and simplifying the evaluation process, we hope that the price calculator can help your team make informed decisions and achieve your digital transformation goals. Overall, the SASE SD-WAN Price Calculator could be an invaluable tool for you if you are looking to adopt a secure and reliable connectivity solution with a clear view of monthly operating costs and the total contract value.
