Ekran System is

licensed by a number of Ekran

Clients – end-points to be monitored.

This transparent model with floating licensing makes Ekran System

deployments the most affordable on the market.

Each Ekran System deployment consists of Ekran System Management Panel (one per deployment) and Ekran System Clients (corresponding to the number of monitored endpoints).


Within the Standard Edition, you need licenses only for your end-points, and you can easily re-assign them between machines in a couple of clicks. Enterprise Edition provides more management features targeted at bigger deployments and requires additional license for Management Panel. Please find details below.

Ekran System Clients for different endpoint types


Ekran System provides monitoring licenses for desktops and servers. While there is a single license type for desktop machines (Workstation Client license), several types of server monitoring licenses are provided depending on the server endpoint role in your corporate network.


This licensing option diversity allows you to build a deployment scheme that maximally fits your infrastructure. See details below.


  Supported OS Configuration Max # of sessions* Further remote session recording**
Workstation Client license Windows desktop OS,
1 yes
Infrastructure Server Client license Windows Server 2 no
Cloud Server Client license*** Windows Server
deployed on Microsoft Azure
or Amason Web Services
cloud platforms
2 no
Terminal Server Client license Windows Server with Terminal Services,
Citrix Server,
Published App Server
unlimited no
Jump Box Server Client license Windows Server unlimited yes
Linux / UNIX Server Client license Linux,
Oracle Solaris,
unlimited yes

* Maximal number of simultaneously recorded concurrent sessions on the licensed endpoint. If the actual number of concurrent sessions accedes this value at some moment, newly initiated sessions will not be recorded. At the same time all access management tools continue working for unlimited number of sessions.

** Further remote session is a user session initiated from the monitored endpoint to connect to another endpoint via a remote client application (such as RDP Clients or PuTTY; the complete list can be found in the user manual). The monitored endpoint in this case acts as a so-called jump box server in the corresponding network access scheme.

*** Special discounted offer for small businesses.



When purchasing, you can choose the Edition for your Management Panel and any number of Client licenses of required types. You receive the generated serial keys, which you then have to activate. After activation, you can assign the Client licenses, included in a serial key, to Ekran Clients.


Ekran System Management Tool provides simple interface to assign, remove, and transfer licenses between end-points in your IT infrastructure in just a couple of clicks. For Client license provisioning in the virtual environments, see details here.


Subscription for updates and support



Any license already includes 12 months of updates and support. To continue using these services after the first year, please get in touch with your Ekran System representative or contact us directly.


You can activate the serial key automatically via Internet (it requires that the computer with Ekran Server installed has Internet access), or manually (if the computer with Ekran Server does not have Internet connection). To activate serial keys manually please refer to the Offline Activation page.
