Licensing Guidelines

This document forms part of the Sophos End User License Agreement which is available at http://www.sophos.com/en-us/legal.aspx. Terms used in these Licensing Guidelines where are not defined herein shall have the meanings given to them in such Sophos End User License Agreement.

Sophos Licensed Products are licensed by User, Computer, Server or other applicable units, as specified in the table below. The license schedule issued by Sophos specifies the number of applicable units that the Licensee has ordered for each Licensed Product (the “License Entitlement”). The Licensee’s actual usage may not exceed the License Entitlement at any time or under any circumstances. If Licensee wishes to increase its actual usage, Licensee must first purchase the corresponding additional License Entitlement.

The following definitions apply to the table below

1.'Computer' means any device or computing environment which benefits from the Licensed Product (for example but without limitation, workstations, personal computers, laptops, netbooks, tablets, smartphones, and environments connected to an email server, an internet proxy or a gateway device, or a database). The Licensed Product does not have to be physically installed on the computer environment to provide benefit, nor is there a requirement for the computing hardware to be owned by the Licensee. The term Computer as defined herein includes, without limitation, non-persistent deployments, electronic devices that are capable of retrieving data, and virtual machines.

2. 'Server' means a Computer upon which the Licensed Product is installed AND from which other Computers receive or retrieve data. If the data is solely generated by the Licensed Product, then the Computer is not considered a Server.

3. 'User' means an employee, consultant or other individual who benefits from the Licensed Product.
NOTE: The Product does not have to be physically installed on the User's computer environment in order to provide benefit to the User.

General exception for Education, Health and Government Entities:

If Licensee is an educational, health or government entity, Products which are usually licensed on a per User basis may alternatively, at Sophos’s option, be licensed on a per Computer basis, or for email Products only, on a per mailbox basis. If a bundle includes both email and non-email Products, the aforementioned licenses must be the higher of the entity’s Computer and mailbox count. If Licensee subsequently transfers such Products to an entity which does not fall within the education, health or government sector then license entitlement shall revert to calculation on a per User basis.

Number of Computers (Devices) per User:

In the case of Products licensed by User, each User may use a reasonable number of Computers unless a specific cap on Computers per User is stated in the table below. Sophos reserves the right to apply a cap on Computers where usage is deemed unreasonable.

Sophos reserves the right to change or update these Licensing Guidelines at any time. Changes shall be effective from the date that the revised Licensing Guidelines are posted to this website.

When a User communicates with or through the gateway (including without limitation DNS and DHCP queries to the gateway and communications both to the Internet and a different LAN segment), their IP address is added to list of licensed devices in the gateway’s local database. If several Users communicate through a single device then every User is counted as a separate User. If an IP address has not been used in the last seven (7) days, it is removed from the database.
