1. What are the ManageEngine purchasing / licensing options?

The Annual Subscription option includes the following for the period that the subscription is active:
  • The rights to use the product
  • Non-SLA based Remote Technical Support
  • The rights to download and install product maintenance

The <span style="font-weight:bold;"><span style="font-size:16px;">Perpetual License with Annual Maintenance and Support (AMS)</span></span> option has two parts:
