About Softcat

Symantec software licensing

Softcat is part of the Symantec Enterprise Service Provider (ExSP) Programme, which is designed to enable service providers to easily licence Symantec software products to ‘bundle’ into outsourced and managed services for your customers.

Softcat has a long, strong relationship with Symantec which has flourished thanks to our dedicated SPLA (service provider licensing agreements) team. Together with Symantec we offer access to a range of security solutions, and combined with our first-class customer service we are well positioned to help you get the most out of the ExSP Programme and integrate market-leading Symantec software into your end-user services.

Benefits of the programme:

  • No up-front fees - Symantec products are licenced on a non-perpetual, one month term basis with all payments in arrears
  • Attractive commercial rights - Software licences grant the service provider third party use rights which enable you to use Symantec products to provide a service to your end users on a limited term basis
  • Flexible reporting - Unlike the other hosting licensing schemes, Symantec reporting is required on a quarterly basis
  • Volume discounts - Price breaks that reward increased levels of spending

If you’re interested in using Symantec software as part of your service portfolio, we’ll construct an agreement that’s both commercially attractive and gives you the peace of mind that your services are in safe hands.
