Renew your support to keep your security products up to date. Multiyear support is available for purchase at increased per-year pricing. Early renewal is encouraged — McAfee will simply start your second year when your first year expires. Late renewal means your term will be backdated to the expiration date of your previous coverage. Additional out-of-support fees may also apply.

Support Upgrades
Upgrade your support to meet your specific needs. McAfee's Platinum Technical Support includes a dedicated Enterprise Support Account Manager. You can also add support for additional languages, up to three McAfee contacts and even a global support manager if needed.

Cotermination Option
Helpful for organisations that order multiple products on varying timeframes, this option allows prorating so your agreements have the same end date for easier administration. Orders must include 251 or more nodes to qualify for cotermination. Valid grant numbers are required.
