A SharePoint Server client access license (CAL) gives a user the right to access the services of SharePoint Server. This Enterprise Edition device CAL authorizes one computer to use the Enterprise Edition functionality of SharePoint Server, regardless of the number of users (for example, a shared workstation). An organization must acquire both a Standard Edition CAL and an Enterprise Edition CAL in order to use the Enterprise Edition.
User CALs are also available. A user CAL authorizes a user to access SharePoint Server from any device (for example, when an employee accesses the server from a computer at work and another at home).
Note: This license does not require media, license keys, or setup codes.
- Under the Software Assurance program, customers acquire the right to install any new release of products covered in the agreement during the term of their coverage.
