Great news for enterprise customers wanting to move to Adobe Creative Cloud. Adobe’s enterprise-specific version, Creative Cloud for enterprise, is now available under the Value Incentive Plan (VIP), offering business customers advanced content protection, deployment and access control – all through a flexible licensing programme.
Here’s everything you need to know about what you get in Adobe Creative Cloud for enterprise, how it stacks up against Creative Cloud for teams, the different licensing options, and that all-important information – how much it’s going to cost you…
What is Creative Cloud for enterprise?
Just as Creative Cloud for teams is tailored towards creative teams, and Creative Cloud for education is the option for educational institutions, Creative Cloud for enterprise has been specifically designed for enterprise organisations. You of course get access to all the top creative apps you’d expect, including Photoshop, InDesign, Premiere Pro, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and the rest, but also some nifty enterprise-only features.
It includes all the necessary licence management, deployment and content protection capabilities required to safeguard your organisation’s valuable creative assets, and it’s now available under the VIP programme, so you can access all these features without being tied into a multi-term contract.
Is Creative Cloud for enterprise for me?
If you have a dedicated IT resource and are looking to streamline management and have more control over your environment – including identifying and authenticating users, and protecting assets and documents – then Creative Cloud for enterprise is going to be ideal for you. Already a Creative Cloud for teams customer? If you want to upgrade to the enterprise version and receive all those extra features, you’ll just need to wait until your renewal window (30 days before and after the anniversary date).
What do I get?
As mentioned, with Creative Cloud for enterprise you get everything available in Creative Cloud for teams (essential creative apps, automatically updated at no extra cost, along with connected mobile apps, cloud storage, and online collaborative tools and services), plus:
Advanced licence management
– Integrate with existing corporate identity system single sign-on (SSO).
– Remove users or reassign licences individually or by group.
– Automatically remove users who leave the company when federated ID (SSO) is enabled.
