Tell me about Meraki’s licenses. What is this, and why do I need it for my MX64-W?
All current Cisco Meraki products require valid licenses to operate, including the Cisco Meraki MX64-W Firewall. It’s 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. You can get them through your authorized Meraki partner.
First, the Enterprise License
With the Enterprise License 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?
This one adds a lot more security to your MX64-W. It is an all-around security package that can protect you from nearly any attack. It includes Intrusion Detection / Prevention and Anti-Virus and Anti-Phishing. Additionally, you get Content / Web-Search Filtering and Advanced Malware.
Lastly, remember that without this licensing, your MX64-W will cease to function. 30 days prior to your license’s expiration date, the administrators on your account will be notified. Then, another e-mail will come 3 days prior to expiration. An account expiration banner will also display in the Meraki dashboard at this time. But, you can reactivate your account at any point in the future.
To do this (after it expires), just add the necessary number of valid licenses. Questions? Just email us or call Corporate Armor at 877-449-0458!
