We just go the renewal quote for our Email Security Gateway 400Vx Sub License. It is up about 25%.
After questioning Barracuda, this is the response we got back:
"We had a 25% increase on this product after no increase for 7 years.
The tariffs increase the overall cost in providing support in general, so it does affect the renewal cost as well.
In addition to tariffs, this product has only had 3 increases in 15 years, and was pretty far below the industry standard for pricing. So the increase was a course-correction to catch up with the industry average."
Way to go Barracuda, hit all your renewals with a 25% increase with no warning. They could have at least phased in the increase. Nothing like a surprise extra thousand a year for no gain to the customer!
