Anti-virus software vendor Network Associates (NAI) has expanded its reseller programme by opening up boxed products to the volume market.
NAI has bumped up its multinode versions of Dr Solomon's Total Virus Defence from 50 nodes to a limit of 250 nodes.
Sarah Whipp, European channel marketing manager at NAI, said the move would allow resellers to gain access to the volume software market. It appealed especially to the emerging breed of Internet-based resellers that do not always have licensing expertise, she added.
Some customers prefer to sacrifice the flexibility of software licensing for the greater discounts they gain on multinode products, she claimed.
"We're trying to be all things to all people, and we don't want to miss out on any part of the market," Whipp said.
Meanwhile, NAI said its Web site for resellers to register sales had received more than 400 hits on its first day of operation.
VARs gain points for every product sold, and prizes include tickets to the Euro 2000 football tournament.
