We allow license surging in Release 10.x. For a company whose growth strategy is growth through acquisition, our ability to scan the network of the “to be acquired company” is immense. However, it is my understanding we can only scan access points and API based devices. So legacy network devices, (i.e., routers, switches, load balancers, firewalls) cannot be scanned.
If my understanding is wrong, please correct me. I feel that if this is correct, it is a tremendous shortcoming in the value proposition we can offer companies like Nestle and Centene. I’d like to be able to punch a hole into the “to be acquired company’s” firewall, install a front server and discover their entire network, not a subset of it.
Can this be something we address in the near term?
