security management software for five gateways license

Folks,

 

We are a small company and have one management server and a pair of clustered 5100 firewalls.   Does anyone know why it isn't possible to buy a license for just one or two gateways instead of five?  We pay around $5,000 per year to license our firewalls which is a lot of money for a small company.  If anyone has any recommendations it would be greatly appreciated.

Unfortunately the smallest license for on-prem management is 5 GW. I think it would be very interesting and more competitive (for SMB and Mid Market companies) to have a license with only two gateways and with options to grow from there.

It is is also good to mention that you have a cloud management option (Smart-1 Cloud) that starts at 1 gateway and charges by month or year

@Daniel_Bourne maybe Check Point will bring back the 2 Gateway license. Some years ago these type of license was available and perfect for a one cluster solution.

Yes, a cloud solution for the management is available but what you have to pay for does not really differ.

We’ve included Local Management licenses for a while, but particularly with R80.x, local management doesn’t provide the best experience.

Smart-1 Cloud allows you to buy management for as few gateways as you want and is fairly cost-effective.
