WSA / CWS Licensing count question.

Hello,

 

I have a question how WSA and CWS are licensed based on the number of users.

Is it based on concurrent or named users, active sessions based on source IP address or another way? This old post mentions concurrent users but based on a legacy ironport ordering guide. And that document does not mention any licensing methods.

However for CWS i found this post:

For the sizing it mentions: "It will be total number of CWS users, not concurrent users". Sizing is nog licensing, but the CWS datasheet mentions "The Cisco Web Security portfolio uses tiered pricing based on the number of users".

 

I believe there are licenses allowing mixed use of CWS and WSA in combination with the free Virtual Applicances. Is this correct and how does this reflect on my question regarding user licensing?

Hi, It's based on the number

Hi,

 

It's based on the number of named users, however there is no absolute way to count the users so it's a trust thing too and you should be honest about how many users you have.

 

Thanks

Chris
