    My ESS license is soon running out (3 months) and I think about renewing as I do not know any other security software package that's better than ESS.

    I'm interested in both 1 or 2 years depending on the price. What would you recommend? Betterantivirus seems good and that's where I bought my license 2 years ago.

    Thanks

    I noticed Betterantivirus does not have 3 year licenses. I've seem them from resellers in the UK and Australia...

    This won't be very helpful but you've just missed a two years for the price of one ESET promo. You may be able to get a good-ish discount by extending your license normally though.

    You can only get 3-year licensing on special deals offered by Eset, which allows us Resellers to offer it as well, but during normal circumstances, it is reserved for Business Edition licenses. There are currently no specials going on that allows for a 3-year purchase/renewal.

    The current promotion is for Business Edition licenses with a minimum of 50-users. You can get an equal number of Exchange seats for a year at no extra cost.

    As far as getting the best deal on a renewal, you will see that most Resellers, including us, abide by Eset's guidelines and offer prices equal to theirs.
    Resellers/Partners offering prices lower than Eset's posted prices are doing so against Eset's wishes.

    Hope that helps.

    Now it's really time for me to renew...

    Does anybody know about current deals?

    I saw www.betterantivirus.com have a deal at the moment but not for renewals.

    Thanks!

    Obviously a Reseller (should) give you a personal contact and support (who is backed by ESET), particularly in general setup and maintenance of the product, which is why you would go to a reseller over directly with Eset to get that extra support, if you need/wish it of course.

    And I'll offer a quick plug for Capp. In our case, for no extra cost, we now have an extra layer of support, available by phone (in the same time zone ! ), who answers emails quickly.

    You might be able to benefit from this offer, depending on where you live- I think it runs islandwide in Singapore only. Note that purchasing from the online reseller does not have the price promo applied to it, only at physical stores do they have this discount.
