Licensing basics

Citrix licensing provides simple language, flexible terms and transparent enforcement of Citrix software to protect your legal and financial interests. This includes providing your organization integrated license management for our desktop, datacenter and networking products. Be assured we have the right virtual computing solution and licensing program for your organization.

Flexible licensing programs

Citrix offers licensing programs designed to meet the needs of commercial enterprises, educational institutions and government agencies worldwide. For commercial organizations, Citrix offers the Enterprise License Agreement Program with all-inclusive discounts for products and select services and exclusive member offers for customers who can make up-front purchasing commitments. The EASY License Program is also available for customers with more sporadic purchasing needs.

Citrix also offers licensing for public sector organizations including education, government and many non-profit organizations. The Education License Program is available globally to qualified education institutions. International public sector entities can participate in the Government and Government Education License Agreement Program (GELA). Eligible U.S. Federal and state government agencies can also purchase Citrix products and services using pre-negotiated contract vehicles including a GSA Schedule.

Customers may also take advantage of product promotions to save money when getting started with new or expanding Citrix virtual computing plans.

Transparent metering and monitoring

For many products and licensing models, license usage may be automatically collected and monitored by a central License Server. Centralized usage reporting helps your organization make informed decisions and ensures your organization has the licenses needed to support smooth business operations without excess and without disrupting end users.

Through integrated management and a central License Server that is easy to administer and configure, Citrix provides consistent license management across many products. The My Account area provides easy access to all the tools and resources you need to manage your company’s business with Citrix: manage your licenses, download software and update your profile. Additionally, as your business needs require, upgrade to a higher product edition, try other Citrix products and more. All Citrix products and the related support and maintenance are governed under an End User License Agreement shipped with the products and otherwise available online.
