Hi,

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.

You're welcome.

The right to use has no expiry. If you're happy with out-of-date signatures, you may use it indefinitely.
