Symantec Licensing Programs

Symantec offers licensing programs designed to deliver a single, consistent licensing experience with Symantec. The programs are designed to enable procurement in most instances, with a single purchase order, with products delivered in a single shipment, on a single invoice.

The integrated Symantec Buying Programs are designed to streamline the purchase of Symantec security and availability software as well as support and maintenance services. With several program choices aligned to a variety of business requirements, these new buying programs offer enterprise customers the ability to earn greater discounts and to effectively track and manage software licenses.

Express Program

Designed especially for small to mid-size companies that need an easier way to purchase small license quantities for use within a single country, without time-consuming negotiations.

Rewards Program

The Rewards program offers mid-size and large customers volume-purchase incentives, a predictable pricing methodology, regardless of volume, and the added bonus of the ease and flexibility of centralised purchasing.

Enterprise Options Program

These programs provide large companies with flexible deployment rights, dynamic online tracking and reporting, with negotiated volume discounts plus the choice of flexible support and maintenance offerings.
