Sensor Licensing
You must purchase as many Wanguard Sensor licenses (or the more affordable Wansight Sensor licenses if DDoS detection or mitigation is not needed) as the number of Packet Sensors and Flow Sensors that you are going to configure and activate in the web interface.
  • Each Flow Sensor can monitor a single flow exporter - usually a border or edge router. Flow Sensor does not have a limit on the number of interfaces it can monitor.
  • Each Packet Sensor can monitor a single network interface. Multiple Packet Sensors listening to the same interface (e.g. multi-queue NIC) consume a single Sensor license. Packet Sensor can monitor an unlimited number of IPs/domains.

Filter Licensing
You must also purchase as many Wanguard Filter licenses as the number of Filters (Packet Filters or Flow Filters) that you are going to configure and activate in the web interface. Each Filter can monitor and apply filtering rules on a single network interface.

Console Licensing
Console is free, and it does not require a license.

Cluster Licensing
Sensor Cluster and Filter Cluster are free, and do not require a license.

Server Licensing
You can distribute the licensed Sensors and Filters on any number of servers without additional licensing costs. We do not license the servers that run our software but we do require the registration of each server.

Licensing Period
The minimum software licensing period is 12 months. You can purchase licenses for up to 4 years in advance. We sell perpetual licenses only in special cases (for our own hardware, OEM deals, etc.). The subscription-based licensing model has a few advantages over the perpetual licensing model:
  • It lowers the initial cost. For the long term, it is also more cost-effective than a perpetual license + annual support costs.
  • It includes standard support for the whole period of the subscription.
  • It is an incentive to keep adding all the features you need.
  • It is an incentive to provide you with the best support.

Licensing Limitations
The software does not support separate expiration dates for multiple Sensor and Filter licenses. To avoid losing licensing days we merge the expiration dates for components not purchased at the same date by calculating the average date while considering the number of licenses, in a fair manner.
Eg. If you have a Sensor license expiring in 6 months and you buy another Sensor license for 12 months, you will not have different expiring dates for the 2 Sensors. Instead, you will have a single license key for 2 Sensors valid for 9 months.
