LICENSE USE FOR AFFILIATED COMPANIES JUST GOT SIMPLER
As business grows, enterprises that consist of several affiliated companies sometimes need to administrate and manage hundreds of Software License Codes (SLCs) for their XProtect VMS. The End User License Agreement (EULA) for XProtect 2021 R1 simplifies the license administration for such affiliated companies. It allows the user of XProtect VMS product (XProtect Corporate, XProtect Expert, and XProtect Professional+) to grant access to and permit the use of the product by its affiliated companies. This means that a single SLC can be used to deploy XProtect VMS across several affiliated companies, where each deployment gets its share of the total number of purchased device licenses.
The end-user of XProtect VMS product, the licensee, remains fully responsible for the affiliated companies’ access and use of the XProtect VMS product in compliance with the Milestone EULA.
