There is good news for fast-growing companies that exceed this 20% threshold. You only pay for what goes beyond 20%, and Cisco only charges you if the annual audit has taken place. To recycle the example above, if you had 100 additional users and you had 30% above your original license number, Cisco would only charge an additional 10% at the time of the annual audit in the future! No cost to calculate. This concept is called “True Forward.” The Cisco Enterprise Agreement simplifies licensing management by consolidating the various subscriptions and renewal dates normally required to manage enterprise software licenses, up to a single agreement with uniform business terms. You can now enter into a Cisco Enterprise agreement that meets your business requirements and extend it later with the same agreement. If you have covered your entire technology stack under a single agreement, you can create labs, cut licenses as you see fit, and transfer them to different hardware. This ensures that all your software modules are consistent and regularly updated with the latest threat prevention features or press releases. Optimize security management with a single deal for all your safety. Everything is in a portal where all licenses take place at the same time.

Keeping an inventory of the license connected to which device and in terms of costs and renewal date is a permanent activity for many IT professionals that would provide better productivity for the company if it focused on other countries. With the Cisco Enterprise Agreement, licenses are not hardware-related, are present in a pool and are cut from a central portal. The 20% growth factor means you can use it without a full procurement process. All your teams working from a single portal for licensing consumption have the added advantage that the strategy is site-oriented and theatre-oriented. Use statistics provide valuable insight into the acceptance of certain technology features with one user group over another. As the impact of software in traditional technologies continues to increase, companies will closely monitor the applications or functions that will be supported, as this will serve as the basis for future renovation and eliminate any scaly work. The most common question that is asked is simple. There is no reproduction of licenses.
Your existing license and the rest of your support contract will be exchanged and you will receive a discount on the costs of the Cisco Security Enterprise agreement.
