Servers

All servers: 1 license per server. This allows you to run scans on the local file system, process memory, and on network storage.

The server on which the network storage device is hosted requires a license, but the host on which the network storage device is mounted does not.

Database servers: 1 license per database server. Database servers are licensed individually. If using a clustered database, each node must also be individually licensed.

Websites: 1 license per domain name. No limit on sub-folders within the same domain. Sub-domains are licensed separately. For example, the following require a separate license each:

  • example.com
  • www.example.com
  • subdomain.example.com
