Buying Programs

Symantec licensing programs are designed to streamline the purchase of Symantec software, incorporating support and maintenance services. A Symantec agreement number (SAN) is issued with every license in all our licensing programs. Customers can view, track, and manage all licenses and renewals using their SAN.
With several program choices aligned to a variety of business requirements, these licensing programs offer the ability to earn greater discounts and to effectively track and manage software licenses.
Looking for licensing information on a specific Symantec product? Please contact Symantec Sales or Symantec Support.
