Renewing Support versus new Hardware

One of the things to keep in mind is that annual support costs (A/V, IDS/IPS updates, hardware maintenance) are based around the list price of the hardware itself. When the time comes to renew your Fortinet support take a close look at how much money you're spending on support versus the cost of newer, faster hardware.

I was amazed to see that for the same cost of renewing support on a Fortigate 800 we were able to purchase a new Fortigate 310B system, including a year of bundled support.

Just sayin .. :)
