Consultation and deployment cost
Charged at the standard IT Services day rate of £620, the total will depend on the complexity of the firewall in question. We will provide an estimate for consultation and deployment after an initial meeting to discuss your needs.
Purchase cost of firewall hardware
All firewall pricing comes complete with 5 years manufacture hardware warranty and all software updates for the device. There are two options for support:
- Working hours (8x5) support - this includes access to support services via telephone, the customer support web portal and online chat system. Faulty units need to be returned to Fortigate by the customer via courier, before a replacement unit is dispatched. Expected turnaround 3-5 working days.
- All hours (24x7) support - this includes access to support services via telephone, the customer support web portal and online chat system any time day or night. Faulty units are replaced next business day; the faulty unit needs to be returned to Fortigate by the customer within 30 days. This is our recommended option.
For details of current models, please contact us via the IT Service Desk.
FortiGate firewall device specifications are available on their website.
IT Services has negotiated preferential pricing for your unit’s chosen firewall device. All firewall pricing excludes VAT and is subject to change as it is tied to the USD exchange rate. All pricing assumes Ethernet connectivity and not fibre. Should a unit wish to take advantage of the preferential pricing, please contact us.
Unified Threat Management (UTM) features are available on all FortiGate models with the exception of the 70D. We have also negotiated preferential pricing for enabling UTM features, if you are interested in using UTM please ask us for details.
Virtual domains (VDOMs) are a method of dividing a FortiGate unit into two or more virtual firewalls that function as multiple independent units. VDOMs can provide separate firewall policies and, in NAT/Route mode, completely separate configurations for routing and VPN services for each connected network or organisation.
Managed firewall support costs
This support fee allows your unit’s recognised points of contact to submit any support request or rule set change to our team of technical experts.
- £1,595 per annum per firewall device (or HA pair)
- then £150 per annum for each additional VDOM if deployed
For questions relating to the firewall service, please contact the IT Service Desk.
All firewalls, purchased through Nouveau Solutions Ltd, come with 5 years hardware manufacturer warranty and software updates. After this time the device will need to be replaced to remain within the IT Services management scheme. IT Services will contact you in good time, so you can ensure that your budget projections are accurate, and assist you through the renewal processes.
IT Services firewall contracts can be cancelled by giving one month’s notice and a refund of the monies paid towards the yearly support fees can and will be given. VAT has not been included in any figures being presented.
