If i am buying Cisco IPS with three year warranty then the license file i get for the sensor is for lifetime or for three years ?
I have heard that the IPS will continue to receive updates even after 3 years and is a lifetime license
Is this correct ?
Cisco IPS has both the license (right to use) component and the software subscription (updates to signatures and engine from Cisco).
The subscription is based on a fixed term (1 year, 3 year etc.) and will not continue once the term has expired.
You can use the system (with older signatures etc.) indefinitely.
