Licensing MGW 7

Jump to solution

HI,

I read the KB https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB73701 and I need clarification.

Will MWG deny any new connections if the number of connections is over the maximum allowed by our license?
In MWG 7.x, there is no denial of new connections. If you go over your limit, filtering and browsing will still continue as normal.

"normal browsing" means that filters are applied, or no?.

So, if a customer purchase only 100 users licenses, he could use them to 1000 users...

Thanks!

P.D.: Maybe it's a problem with the translation.

Hello,

if you have a license for 100 users and 1000 users access web gateway there will not be any impact of any kind. Everything will work as expected, all filters are applied, etc.

Of course using a 100 user license for a 1000 user company most likely violates the licensing contract or cause different kinds of legal trouble, but from a technical perspective it will work just fine.

Best,

Andre
