As of July 1, 2024, Paessler has decided to move PRTG Network Monitor to a subscription-based licensing model and is offering 3-year subscriptions for all PRTG Network Monitor licenses.

This is to accelerate Paessler’s ability to continuously improve the product, maximize the value it creates for customers worldwide, and provide better support to further enhance the customer experience.

Please note that perpetual licenses with maintenance renewals will no longer be available for purchase. Instead, users who decide to switch to the subscription model will receive a discount of 20% or more (depending on the license)!
