Entitlements for each protected device

An entitlement is a right to use, access, or consume an application or resource, typically for a fee.

The Security Cloud - Plus edition offers the following entitlements:

Entitlement Limit Description
Data ingestion for each Protected Device 4.5GB storage per Protected Device (1 SVC per 222 Protected Device).
For more updated information on licensing limits, see Suitification Licensing.


The entitlements for each of the Security Cloud editions are based on protected devices. Protected devices refers to the total number of devices that are connected to the customer's network with an IP address. They are not limited to the number of devices that directly send events to the Splunk platform. For example, if you have one Blue Coat Web Proxy, one Palo Alto Firewall, and 998 desktop PC's, you have 1,000 protected devices.
Splunk Virtual Core Units (SVCs) for each protected device 0.003 rounded up to the nearest integer The Cloud metric is called a Splunk Virtual Compute (SVC) while the on-prem metric is called a Virtual Central Processing Unit (vCPU). Both are calculations of the CPU resources allocated and available to Splunk for search head and indexer components only. This industry standard, value-oriented metric aligns your Splunk investment with your search activity providing you flexibility to bring in data volume without ingest limits.
