The way the Licensing Management Platform handles licensing and service plans depends on the type of solution:
Software are solutions that are hosted on site.
Services or Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions are remotely-hosted solutions.
Suites are solutions that combine both software and/or SaaS solutions.
Different licensing options, including the activation policy, depend on the type of Trend Micro solution you are working with.
The following products are activated with the product serial number, instead of an Activation Code:
Trend Micro™ ServerProtect™ for Windows
Trend Micro™ ServerProtect™ for NetApp
Trend Micro™ ServerProtect™ for EMC Celerra
