Administrator Help | Forcepoint Web Security and Forcepoint URL Filtering | v8.5.x
Forcepoint subscriptions are issued on a per-client (IP address) basis.
To activate your software, enter a valid subscription key (see Configuring your account information). This lets you:
*
*
(Forcepoint Web Security only) Download the analytic databases to support real-time analysis of web content.
After the first successful database download, the Web > Settings > General > Account page in the Forcepoint Security Manager displays the number of clients your subscription includes and your subscription type (Forcepoint Web Security or Forcepoint URL Filtering).
A component called Filtering Service maintains a subscription table of clients generating Internet requests each day.

*
In all deployments, when a subscription expires, all requests are permitted or blocked, depending on the same configurable setting. When the expiration date approaches, administrators are notified through a combination of email alerts and health alerts displayed in the Security Manager.
