Nexus IQ Server powers multiple Nexus solutions, including Lifecycle, Auditor, Firewall, and Lifecycle Foundation. Each solution's corresponding license controls access to IQ Server tools and features. You may have access to some 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 table below breaks down the various solutions (licenses) and their corresponding products.
