No, you must purchase blocks of server and/or desktop licenses from Cisco. They are added incrementally to the CSAMC to enable support for the agents. One agent is also installed on the CSAMC itself and counts against the total number of server licenses you have purchased.
From the book I previously mentioned this is a paraphrase:
As agents are installed with the agent kit executable installer, the first task of the agent is to register with the CSAMC. During the attempt at registration the CSAMC checks as to whether there are any available licenses for the agent, and, if so, allows registration and decrements the available licenses by one.

"The Management Center for Cisco Security Agents CD contains a license key which is used to operate the MC itself. If you need further license keys, before deploying Cisco Security Agents, you should obtain a license key from Cisco. To receive your license key, you must use the Product Authorization Key (PAK) label
affixed to the claim certificate for CSA MC located in the separate licensing
To obtain a production license, register your software at the following web site.
