Upgrading Subscriptions from the Hub

If you are a direct customer (not using OMS) with Essential/Premium/Ultimate Business Security products, you can upgrade to a higher tier directly from Business Hub without waiting for a renewal period or extending an expiration date. The upgrade option does not apply to the Ultimate Business Security products since that is the highest tier.


To get the upgrade, go to the Subscriptions page, locate your product subscription, and hit the Upgrade button.

You’ll see a comparison of individual product tiers with respective prices for upgrading.

Choose the product and select Proceed to checkout to finish the transaction in the online shopping cart.

You will see the new product directly in the Hub, with the original expiration date.
