Licensing and Features

Licensing

Nexus solutions — Nexus Lifecycle, Nexus Auditor, and Nexus Firewall — are powered by Nexus IQ Server. Each solution has a corresponding license that controls the availability of IQ Server tools and features. You may have access to a portion or all of IQ Server tools and features depending on the solution you purchased.

In general, when we are talking about a solution, we are referring a particular license (e.g. Nexus Lifecycle vs. Nexus Firewall ) and the features it unlocks. In contrast, when we describe a product, we specifically mean the thing you will install (e.g. Nexus IQ Server). The various solutions (licenses) and their corresponding product are broken down in the table below:

Solution (License)
