XProtect: Easy to upgrade

It is easier than ever to keep current with the latest advancements and upgrade your XProtect system. When updating to a new version of the same product, the installer automatically obtains a license for the latest software version. When upgrading from one XProtect VMS to a more advanced product, re-installation of the software is no longer required. You can also see notifications about software releases and new device packs in the Management Application when the system is online.
