Webmonitor's new subscription pricing has taken it from being a good, cost effective content management and protection solution to a overpriced insult to my intelligence.  We've gone from having to come up with a few hundred dollars each year in maintenance on WM and the virus products to having to come up with $4k+ for a year's "subscription".

WM was an easy choice early on because of the features and the price, but now that it's more expensive than other packages, I have to take a look at other possibilities.  For us, content filtering isn't nearly as important as the ability to virus scan every incoming file--being able to stop the spyware before it even gets past the firewall has saved me countless hours of support time.

I'm not familiar with the product, nor it's pricing but i'm afraid I hve to play Devils Advocate with the statement:

saved me countless hours

How many? 5? 50? 500? Give that saving of YOUr time + the productivity of your clients/machines is it worth the couple thousand?

Again, Im not supporting the product nor saying that there may not be something bigger, better, cheaper out there... but WAY too often I hear from my clients (new and old) that "we have to replace X because the costs have gone up....... but we'd be lost without it". Maybe thank the stars for getting a solution so cheap for so long, smile at the savings, sigh and sign the renewal cheque...
