How do I license?

We license Software + Services via Online Services model

In general, there are four different types of licenses for Microsoft Online Services:

Services Subscription License (SSL)

An SSL is generally required to enable the functionality of an online service across your entire organization.

•User Subscription License (USL)

A USL is generally required to enable the functionality of an online service for a particular user.

•Device Subscription License (DSL)

A DSL is generally required to enable the functionality of a service for a particular device

•Add-on Subscription License (Add-on SL)

An Add-on SL is generally required to enhance or “add-on to” the functionality of an online service across your entire organization.

Did you know – Not all products require an SSL, the PUR should be referenced for the exact license requirements per product

Did you know – Online Services is not offered in Open Business, Open Volume or Open Charity

Example:

Forefront Client Security

Forefront Client Security Services SL, SSL is required for each server running the FCS Management Console

FC Security User SL , USL is required for each user in your organization that to obtain and process location-based data through the online service

Or

FC Security Device SL, DSL is required for each device that access data processed by the online service or related software

No Add-on SL required for FCS

  4. Hi,

    What about Forefront Endpoint Protection when it comes to servers?
    On the product site it says:Server operating systems must be licensed with a Device Subscription License (DSL), and in PUR – License PER DEVICE. If I have a server with 10 virtual OSEs, do I need one or 10 FEP licenses?

    Thanks,
    Aleksandra
