To be a CSSP Partner, you have to enroll in
the Palo Alto Networks CSSP partners program. For information on enrolling
in the CSSP program, contact your Palo Alto Networks Channel Business
Manager. If you are enrolled, the Palo Alto Network Support portal
provides tools that allow you to select a license package, track
license usage, and apply license entitlements.
A license package
is a combination of the following options:
pay-per-use options are hourly, monthly, 1-year, and 3-years.
VM-Series firewall model—The VM-100, VM-200, VM-300, and
VM-1000-HV that give you the model number and the capacities associated
with each model.
Subscription bundle—The three options are basic, bundle 1,
and bundle 2. The basic option does not include any subscriptions;
bundle 1 has the Threat Prevention license that includes IPS, AV,
malware prevention; bundle 2 has the Threat Prevention (includes
IPS, AV, malware prevention), GlobalProtect, WildFire, and PAN-DB
URL Filtering licenses.
Level of support—Premium support or backline support.
Redundant firewalls—The option are either high availability
(HA) or without HA. This option is a cost-effective option if you
plan to deploy a pair of redundant firewalls.
offering PAN-VM-300-SP-PREM-BND1-YU, for example, is a one-year
term package that includes the VM-300 with premium support and the
subscription bundle 1. Each package supports up to a maximum of
10,000 instances of the VM-Series firewall.
After you select
your license package, you receive an email with your auth code;
the fulfillment process can take up to 48 hours.
