Security settings are simple to share across thousands of sites.

Tell me about Meraki’s licensing. What is this, and why do I need it?
All current Cisco Meraki products require valid licensing to operate, including the Cisco Meraki MX64 Firewall. This is done on a “per device, per year” basis. The MX series has two licenses. They are Enterprise and Advanced Security. These licenses are available in 1, 3, and 5 year options. They can be bought through your authorized Meraki partner.
First, the Enterprise License: With it you’re getting excellent stateful inspection with VPN capabilities. This will do a good job of protecting your business from direct intrusion.
What is Meraki Advanced Security License?
For starters, this one offers a lot more protection. It is an all-around security package that can protect you from nearly any attack. It includes: Intrusion Detection / Prevention, Anti-Virus and Anti-Phishing. Additionally, you get Content / Web-Search Filtering and Advanced Malware Protection.
