I recently sent a request for EDU pricing on a Snort rule subscription to
the Source Fire folks and received the reply below.

Is this something that we should get a site license for?  Do enough people
on campus use Snort to warrant it?

If so the normal price for the rule subscription is $1795.00 per year.

Thank you.

The VRT Certified Rules subscriptions are considered enterprise
licenses. One subscription is all you need to cover all sensors that
protect your university's network. Michigan State does not currently
have a subscription. As an educational institute, you are entitled to a
30% discount off any subscription. Please let me know if you have any
additional questions or would like a formal quote.
