McAfee Licensing

McAfee’s innovative approach to software license procurement includes world-class 24/7 technical support, volume discounts rewards for larger purchases and budget predictability.

McAfee offers both Perpetual and Subscription licensing models.

McAfee Perpetual License
Ideal for customers whose preference is for an indefinite software license term, backed by renewable annual Technical Support contracts.

Available for purchases of 11 nodes or more for products such as McAfee Active Virus Defense, McAfee Active VirusScan and McAfee Total Protection for Endpoint.

This program combines a perpetual license with 1 year of McAfee Gold Technical Support (24/7), daily updates of anti-virus signature files and new version cover. This can be renewed annually.

Perpetual Volume Discount Bands:
  • Band A 11–25
  • Band B 26–50
  • Band C 51–100
  • Band D 101–250
  • Band E 251–500
  • Band F 501–1,000
  • Band G 1,001–2,000
  • Band H 2,001–5,000

Key Benefits
  • Discounts. Volume-discount rewards for larger purchases.
  • Support. Gold Technical Support provides 24/7 technical support and software maintenance.
  • Education & Government. Special pricing for academic and government institutions.
  • Grant Letters distributed within 48 hours.

McAfee Subscription
Some products (for example McAfee Total Protection Service) are sold as subscription licences instead of perpetual licences. Under the Subscription program you have to subscribe to the service on an annual or bi-annual basis (depending upon whether you choose a 1 or 2 year subscription).

At the time of renewal, you can either renew your subscription for a further year, or you can simply choose not to renew and use a different product instead.

McAfee Total Protection Service subscription can start with a minimum purchase of just 2 licences.
