RAV License

I'm currently looking for a second virus scanner to our Mailscanner/F-Prot
I saw someone mentioning RAV as a cheap option, priced at $29/workstation

Has anyone talked to a RAV sales representative and verified that only one
license is needed to use RAV with MailScanner (and with it possibly
protecting thousands of mail users) ?

While F-Prot clearly states their license is per server, RAV's licensing
policy is sketchy at best;


Licensing Policy
Purchasing the first license:

RAV AntiVirus Desktop has a volume sensitive licensing scheme, therefore the
more you buy, the less you pay for a license. Thus, you can purchase the
exact number of licenses that suites you better, and in time, purchase
additional licenses as you need.

What does the license include:

The license includes 1 year Virus updates, Technical support. After this
first year, you may purchase an Update Extension, which will extend the
right to update and benefit from technical support for another year.

Purchasing additional licenses:

You can purchase additional licenses in any number, for the same standard
price. The price volume sensitivity is available only per order!


regards, Tony
