Cisco Enterprise Agreement Introduction

Cisco Enterprise Agreements are contracts that cover all of the software under a technology vertical within the Cisco portfolio.

Put simply, if your business has a lot of Cisco Security platforms deployed, you can license all of this software under one single agreement rather than having many different contracts with varying renewal dates. Cisco Enterprise Agreements are either three-year or five-year contracts.

Benefits of a Cisco Enterprise Agreement

Cisco Enterprise Agreements have many benefits that are both financial and operational. Along with saving between 30-40% on your normal licensing spend, management of your Cisco licensing estate is streamlined. Through the Enterprise Agreement portal, you are able to instantly acquire new licensing instead of the lengthy procurement process that businesses often have to go through.
