As the license term approaches the expiration date, you will receive automatic messages as a reminder that the Subscription Expires, and on expiry, the entire product functionality will be disabled.
This article explains the impact of Subscription expiration on the product functionality, describes the details of the licensing/subscription grace period for the GFI LanGuard, and how to renew the subscription.
As the license term approaches the expiration date, you will receive automatic messages as a reminder of the date of the license expiration: thirty (30) days before and on the day of expiration. This messaging is intended to spur you to complete your renewals so that your product licenses do not lapse and result in lost functionality.
The GFI LanGuard licensing model is subscription-based. If you have not completed the renewal of the software license before the existing license expiration, the company provides a “grace period” during which the GFI LanGuard will continue to function after the expiration of the license/subscription.
The "grace period" provides an extended time to complete license/subscription renewals without immediate penalty (e.g., license termination). The current GFI LanGuard grace period policy is the following:
- Versions 11.4/12 will enter into a 10-day grace period when the product subscription key expires.
- The software will retain full product functionality for ten (10) days.
- Once the 10-day grace period elapses, the product will be shut down, and devices will not be scanned, or no remediation is done.
- The product will not start if no active license is provided.
To renew the subscription, please contact GFI Authorized GFI Resellers and Distributors.
