The NetWatcher services (“Services”) which You may use are limited to those specified below in Section 10, “Ordering and Invoicing Information” or in an online Service Order Page. Subject to Your complete and ongoing compliance with all the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, including the license granted by this Agreement, NetWatcher grants You permission to access and use the Services, only for Your individual use, and solely through the use of the NetWatcher customer portal (the “Portal”) You access through the netwatcher.com website. If You are prohibited under applicable law from using the Services, You may not use the Services.
The NetWatcher Sensor (“Sensor”) passively observes subscriber network traffic on a mirror port to detect anomalous behavior and creates an event if it observes unusual security hygiene concerns. For example, this may include users running risky software, users visiting explicit websites known to be risky, users sending unencrypted data over the Internet, un-credentialed users who have penetrated the firewall and who are scanning internal assets for exploit, or potential cyber security exploits such as malware activity.
The NetWatcher Sensor also has the capacity to:
The NetWatcher Cloud Endpoint “agent” (“net agent” or “NetWatcher Endpoint” or “NetWatcher Cloud Endpoint”) installs “modules” on the endpoint to perform functions such as host intrusion detection, event log analysis and network intrusion detection. The “agent” can also be used to install other third party modules that a customer purchases (such as virus scanning) available through the NetWatcher App Store. The agent modules may send events to a local on premise NetWatcher enterprise Sensor or a Sensor hosted in the cloud.
NetWatcher sends to the cloud events and the corresponding information related to those events including network packets, raw syslog data, host intrusion detection data, netflow analytics and any other raw information that relates to the event for correlation over time. If an anomaly is detected such as a vulnerability, threat, exploit or other unusual data, NetWatcher generates an alarm to warn NetWatcher users of the potential risk related to the activity. NetWatcher transmits event records and corresponding data to the NetWatcher cloud over a secure Virtual Private Network (VPN) using RSA 2048 bit certificates and AES 256 encryption in Cipher Block (CBC) Mode.
The NetWatcher Sensor is available as a hardware appliance or a virtual machine. The NetWatcher Cloud Endpoint Agent is available as a binary intended to run locally on an endpoint asset such as a Laptop or Server. Both the sensor and Agent are available in a 15-day trial. The agent is also offered with limited capabilities via a freemium model.
You may use the Free Cloud Endpoint service for as long as NetWatcher offers it. In the event NetWatcher elects in its sole discretion to terminate this offer, it will provide You fifteen (15) days’ notice of its intent to do so and thereafter may terminate access to the service without any further notice. NetWatcher may add or delete features or impose other limits on use of the service from time to time.
Free Cloud Endpoint service entitles a customer to use the free service for as long as NetWatcher offers it. In the event NetWatcher elects in its sole discretion to terminate this offer, it will provide You thirty (30) days’ notice of its intent to do so and thereafter may terminate access to the service without any further notice. The free service includes the following features: asset information; file integrity analysis; process information, event log information, and network intrusion detection. NetWatcher may add or delete Service features from time to time.

The Services are designed to be run using our proprietary Sensors which are licensed not sold. NetWatcher will provide the Sensors as necessary for You to receive and use the Services (collectively, the “Licensed Materials”). Upon the termination by You or NetWatcher of Your use of the Services, or termination of this Agreement, whichever comes first, You will return Licensed Materials to NetWatcher or in the case of virtual machines, certify that You have deleted them, each within ten (10) business days. If any Sensor provided by NetWatcher is not timely returned or certified as deleted, You will be responsible for paying the then-current list price for such Equipment, and You agree that NetWatcher may charge the payment method provided by You for payment for the Services for the full amount thereof.
Provided that You fully comply with the Terms of this Agreement, NetWatcher grants You a personal, non-transferable, non-exclusive, revocable, limited license to use the Licensed Materials solely for Your own personal and internal corporate use.

You agree that You will not: (a) access, copy, disclose, or use any part or all of the Licensed Materials except in performance of this Agreement; (b) reverse engineer, decompile, or otherwise attempt to discover source code for the Licensed Materials; (c) create derivative works from the Licensed Materials; or (d) sell, resell, lease, sublease, license, sublicense, or otherwise dispose of or transfer the Licensed Materials except as otherwise expressly permitted in this Agreement. This license automatically terminates upon the first to occur of the following: (w) termination of this Agreement; (x) breach of any of the terms of this Agreement; (y) Customer’s failure to pay any amount to NetWatcher when due; or (z) termination of the Services by NetWatcher.

Unless otherwise agreed by NetWatcher and Customer, payment shall be by the credit card identified for payment for Services (or a valid substitute provided by Customer).

The first billing period’s charges under this Agreement, or the first billing period for any upgrade to the Services, will include a prorated charge for the time period, if any, between the Service Commencement Date or upgrade date, as applicable, and the first day of the next calendar month. (For example, if the Service Commencement Date is April 20th, in the month of May, Customer will be charged for the month of May and the eleven days in April that Services were provided.) If NetWatcher agrees to an arrangement other than credit card billing, Customer shall be invoiced monthly or annually, as set forth in Section 10 below, in advance for services , and amounts invoiced shall be payable immediately upon receipt.
