CacheGuard Pricing Key Factors

Here you will find some key factors for the pricing that you should be aware prior to purchase CacheGuard.

Number of users: concurrent, simultaneous, named or unnamed...
In relation to the pricing, users are unnamed so the number of users can be assimilated to the number of connected computers. Also we distinguish concurrent users from simultaneous users. Concurrent users may be passive while simultaneous users are all active (generate traffic). Therefore, when you purchase CacheGuard you are invited to select the right number of users for your need in order to get the best possible price.
The forwarding mode: web mode, capacity, implementation...
To implement CacheGuard Web Gateway in forwarding mode (to protect Web users) the most important factor is the total number of users. A capacity manager, integrated into CacheGuard-OS, tunes the Web Gateway during the installation for a given number of users by assuming that all users are not active at the same time but only 20% of them. With CacheGuard-OS, the forwarding mode is called the web mode. Therefore, when you purchase CacheGuard in web mode please consider the total number of users to manage in order to get the best possible price.
The reverse mode: rweb mode, capacity, implementation...
To implement CacheGuard Web Gateway in reverse mode (to protect Web applications) what counts is the total number of simultaneous users (or Web connections). With CacheGuard-OS, the reverse mode is called the rweb mode. Please note that both web and rweb modes can be activated on the same machine at the same time. Therefore, when you purchase CacheGuard in rweb mode please consider the number of simultaneous users to manage in order to get the best possible price.
URL Blacklists service: subscription, basis...
Our URL blacklists are available as an optional subscription service related to a single CacheGuard Web Gateway identified by its unique S/N. A URL Blacklists subscription allows one download per day, per blacklist category and per public IP address. Please note that our URL Blacklists service works upon an honor system and all abuses will be dropped.
Support levels: technical help, support portal...
Our Support Services are dedicated to helping you get the most from your CacheGuard Web Gateway. Depending on your requirements, we can provide 3 support levels that you can select during your subscription. Our support levels are as follows: the basic level via our CacheGuard Help only, the standard and premium support contracts via our support portal.
