Licensing Update

The Vulnerability Management licensing calculation model has been refined to make it more forgiving of spurious asset data and dynamic cloud workloads. In no case, will the change ever result in a higher licensed asset count, however you may see a reduction.

What has changed:

  • An asset will be considered a licensed asset, if it has been seen with one or more non-discovery plugins in the last 90-days (see below for a list of free discovery plugins). Previously, only assets seen exclusively by the “Host Discovery” scan policy were excluded from the licensed asset count.

    • Below is a list of discovery scan plugin id’s:

      10180, 10287, 10335, 11219, 11933, 11936, 12053, 14272, 14274, 19506, 22964, 33812, 33813, 34220, 34277, 45590, 54615

  • AWS Connector: Licenses for assets discovered through the AWS Connector will be reclaimed the day after they are decommissioned.

Note: If you have any questions, please reach out to your customer success manager.
