Why a subscription?

Because security is a process, not a product. New builds with fixed vulnerabilities and new features keep coming every 3-4 weeks.

Is there a free trial?

All sales come with a two weeks, 100% money back guarantee.

The Elasticsearch plugin has GPLv3 license, is this intentional?

Yes. If it's too restrictive, just go for the Enterprise contract.
If you depend on an OSS security tool commercially, you want it to keep it sharp, relevant and existing. It is in our own interest to sponsor it.
