The Veritas Download Center provides the ability to download Veritas products purchased by Veritas customers.

If you don’t have a Veritas account, you can create one by clicking the Sign in link at the top of the page, then clicking Create one. Once you have completed your registration, you will be able to log into your Veritas account and be able to view any entitlements held by VEMS accounts that your Veritas account is linked to.

 

VIEWING YOUR ENTITLEMENTS
