Why Symantec Licensing?

Symantec is the worldwide leader in security and availability software. Their licensing programs were designed with the specific needs of the customers in mind. The programs provide customers with a consistent and flexible way to purchase Symantec security and availability software as well as support and maintenance service options. Symantec’s licensing programs offer a single Symantec Agreement Number (SAN) through which customers can effectively view, track, and manage all of their Symantec software license and renewal agreements. Symantec enables customers to consolidate their buying power and attain eligibility for higher discount levels, helping them achieve a greater return on their investments.

Symantec Licensing Programs

With licensing program choices aligned to individual business requirements, customers have an easier way to buy Symantec security and availability software, as well as support and maintenance service options. Program options include:

  • Express Program is for small to mid-sized companies that need an easy way to purchase license quantities— without the complexity of contracts.
  • Rewards Program is for mid-sized to large organizations and affiliates that need streamlined procurement, volume-purchasing incentives, predictable pricing, and de-centralized purchasing under a common Symantec Agreement Number (SAN). The Rewards Program provides discounts for aggregated purchasing volume across distributed organizations and affiliates, plus flexible procurement processes to simplify buying in large, decentralized organizations—especially multinationals.
  • Enterprise Options is a prepaid Licensing Program that allows large domestic and global organizations to deploy a specific monetary value of new licenses, within specific Symantec product families, for specific OS platforms, over a specific time period, at specific discounts. Enterprise Options are negotiated contractual engagements.
  • Government Program is for qualified government entities that need to purchase license quantities without signed contracts or financial commitments. The Government Program simplifies buying license quantities for use in the country of purchase. Government buyers are freed from formal contracts and commitments, and are eligible to earn increased discounts for purchases that grow with the size of each order. Managing your discount eligibility can help you meet the budget challenges of government entities at all levels.
  • Academic Program is for qualified academic institutions and charities that need to purchase license quantities without signed contracts or financial commitments.
  • Academic Subscription Program offers government-approved academic institutions a flexible way to purchase software licenses that are bundled with Essential Support (24x7) on a subscription basis. The program makes it easy to procure and administer and helps reduce the total cost of software licensing.
