Device-Based Licensing

WhatsUpGold Premium Edition

Element Based Swtich

Why settle for this...
With competitors, you pay by the interface or 'monitor'. That means you have to figure out how many interfaces you want to monitor on each device. Often, they'll tell you that 'you only need to monitor a few interface per device'. Our question is 'why compromise'?

Device Based Switch

...when you can have this?
With WhatsUp Gold's device-based licensing you get maximal network monitoring coverage with less effort. Just decide what devices you want to manage and we make it simple from there. You pay by the number of devices you monitor and can apply as many monitors as you need.
