Which one of the following is the preferred licensing model? Select the Best answer.

A.
Local licensing because it ties the package license to the IP-address of the gateway and has no
dependency of the Security Management Server.

B.
Central licensing because it ties the package license to the IP-address of the Security Management Server
and has no dependency of the gateway.

C.
Local licensing because it ties the package license to the MAC-address of the gateway management
interface and has no Security Management Server dependency.

D.
Central licensing because it ties the package license to the MAC-address of the Security Management
Server Mgmt-interface and has no dependency of the gateway.

Explanation:
Central License
A Central License is a license attached to the Security Management server IP address, rather than the
gateway IP address. The benefits of a Central License are:
Only one IP address is needed for all licenses.
A license can be taken from one gateway and given to another.
The new license remains valid when changing the gateway IP address. There is no need to create and
install a new license.
