DSaaS licensing options

Below are the licensing mode details:

Free modes

  • New tenants start in this mode. After enabling the new DSaaS licensing mode, all tenants will be in Trial mode.
  • This includes unlimited protection and access to Deep Security component updates.
  • The Trial mode lasts for 30 days. By midnight of the final day, this mode will be converted to Freemium.
  • The expiry date can be extended by an administrator using the user interface.
  • This mode automatically activates after 30 days of Trial mode.
  • There is a limit of five (5) activated Deep Security Agents (DSAs) at a time. Activation fails when there are already five (5) activated DSAs.
  • A notification appears during login when you exceed the limit. This occurs when too many agents are activated at the same time. This also happens when more than five (5) agents from a different licensing mode transferred to this mode.
  • Freemium always have an access to Deep Security component updates.

Paid modes

Seat Subscription

  • Its AC has a built-in seat count. The activation fails when the number of activated DSAs is more than the purchased seat count.
  • A notification appears during login when you exceed the limit. This occurs when too many agents are activated at the same time. This also happens when you downgrade from an AC with a higher seat limit.
  • This mode follows the typical expiry dates and grace periods.
  • The access to Deep Security component updates is revoked after the license expiration date and grace period.

Utility Prepaid

  • This mode is AC-based and usage-based.
  • Its AC has a built-in "$$$ count". The $$$ value is determined by the following formula: 100 x (seat count).
  • Multiple ACs can be applied on this mode. The $$$ balance of all the ACs are added.
  • Its AC cannot be reused.
  • When all the $$$ value in the AC are consumed, it is considered overage. A tenant with $0 balance appears as "Licensed Expired".
  • The expiry date in the AC is ignored.
  • No notification appears when you are out of funds.
  • When the fund runs out, you cannot activate agents nor access the Deep Security component updates.

Utility Pay as You Go

  • This is also known as Deep Security as a Service Subscription in the user interface.
  • Cleverbridge, a third-party payment provider, handles all credit card details. The billing is in arrears, thus, there is no overage behavior. Cleverbridge is in-charged of any issues with the bills of the customers.
