Q: What is the licensing model?
Fastvue Reporter for Barracuda Web Filter is sold on a subscription basis.
Pricing is based on the size of your Barracuda Web Filter installation, as well as your preferred subscription term.
In other words, the number of people with Internet access that are protected by Barracuda Web Filter, and the number of years you would like to purchase up front. Purchasing more years upfront saves you money, and protects you from future price increases.
Q: What is a user?
We consider a user to be a ‘real person’ protected by the Web Filters you need to monitor.
For example, if you have 1000 people in your organization that are protected by your Web Filters, and each user has a laptop, phone and tablet, this still equates to 1000 users.
On the other hand, if you have 1000 people that share 500 computers, then this also equates to 1000 users.
Discounts for Education, Government, and Non-Profits are available. To obtain one of these discounts, click the ‘Request a Quote’ tab and let us know your type of organization in the ‘Special Notes’ section.
