Fair Usage Policy for Web & CASB (Inline)

Updated 2 months ago by admin

Web Security and CASB (Inline Mode) are licensed by number of users.

Below, the following terms are used:

  • Distinct user log entries: Number of unique usernames seen in log entries during a month.
  • Distinct device log entries: Number of unique MAC addresses seen in log entries without usernames during a month.
  • Distinct re-occurring device log entries: The subset of the unique MAC addresses that have been logged on at least 3 different days during a month.
  • Distinct guest device log entries: The subset of the unique MAC addresses that have been logged on up to 2 different days during a month.

 Fixed policy:

The number of distinct usernames must not exceed the number of purchased licenses during a month.

Fair usage policy 1:

The number of distinct re-occurring device log entries during a month must not add up to more than twice the number of licenses purchased.

This means that 1) On average, each user is allowed to have 2 devices using the service, and 2) Guest devices logging in at most twice during a month will not contribute to the calculation.

Fair usage policy 2 (“Guest logins”):

The number of distinct guest device log entries during a month must not add up to more than 5 times the number of licenses purchased. This means that on average, every license allows for 5 monthly guests.
