Symantec Endpoint Security (SEP 11.0) Renewal question
I'm a bit confused about the renewal of SEP11.0. I know it no longer requires a license file or activation but i'm confused about yearly renwal. Has that gone away? My system never says its out of date or that the virus definitions have expired. How am I to know if they have exprired or need renewal? Especially if my system always has a current up to date - date.
I also recenlty installed this on a completly different network for another company and it installed with old 2008 definitions with the warning that said it was out of date but than it did a Live Update and all was well. I haven't registered anything yet, so this new system is doing the samething, how to know if it is out of date?
Do I really have to worry about this anymore if I buy it once, am I all good? Confused on what the web-site says and what a Sales Rep says.
---- also on the same note, if I don't have to renew every year is this beacuse Symantec is coming more inline with what Microsoft is going to be deliverying soon? A complety free care bundel for windows?
Thanks for any clarification.
