If you are using the prepaid credit option, Trend Micro will notify you when you have 30 days left of credit, estimated based on your current usage. If your credit runs out before you have renewed, your protection remains active but you won't be able to activate any new agents and existing agents will no longer receive any updates.

What Deep Security as a Service considers as a protection hour

With Deep Security as a Service AWS Marketplace billing, you pay for any hours during which your computers are protected. A computer that is protected for any part of an hour will be billed for the full hour.

You can see how this is calculated in the usage scenarios below:

When Deep Security as a Service considers a computer protected

When a computer is considered to be protected by Deep Security as a Service depends on where the instance is hosted.

Computers on a cloud service

For computers added to Deep Security as a Service from a cloud service, you are billed when the instance the agent is protecting is powered on. This means that you will continue to be billed for agents in an "Offline" state if the instances they protect are still powered on.

To avoid being billed for protection unnecessarily, we recommend that if you are considering turning off a Deep Security agent for an instance, that you instead power off that instance.

Computers not on a cloud service

For computers added to Deep Security as a Service that are not on a cloud service, you are billed when the agent is in a state other than "Offline". A computer will enter the "Offline" state if the agent protecting it misses one or more heartbeats from the Deep Security Manager.
