Fortinet Continous Service Policy

If the licence for one or more of your Fortinet devices expires, you should renew it before the licence expires. Once the licence for your Fortinet device has expired, the security services included in the licence will no longer be available. It is therefore recommended that you renew your licence early for seamless protection.

However, in the event that a licence renewal is carried out after the licence has expired, Fortinet will backdate the licence term to the expiry date of the old licence. However, it will backdate up to a maximum of 180 days, even if the expiry date is longer.

If a licence is renewed within 10 days of the expiry date, there will be no backdating by Fortinet and the full term of the licence will be available to you.
