Premium Plus Support

Customers who are concerned with down-time for their Internet security may wish to purchase the Premium Plus Support contract. The Premium Plus support contract offers all the benefits of the premium support contract along with a targeted 1 hour response time normal support hours (Monday - Friday 08:30-19:00 EST), excluding holidays and a “hot-swap” warranty option.

The Premium Plus Support Contract includes the following benefits for the twelve-month period beginning on the purchase date of the support contract:

  •    Phone Support
  •     Email Support
  •   Software Updates
    All software updates, including major version and patch-level updates for a twelve-month period starting with activation of the support contract.
  •   10 Support Incidents
    Up to 10 incidents of email technical support, with a targeted 4 hour response time during normal business hours. Resolution time per incident will depend on the nature of the technical support question. GTA does not provide technical support for non-GTA products or components.
  •   Hardware Hot Swap

    A "hot-swap" warranty option. Product must be covered by a GTA warranty. If GTA technical support determines that a GTA product is in need of repair, the customer has the option to request an advanced replacement unit. A replacement unit of comparable level will be shipped to the customer via priority service (Next Business Day for US shipments and International Priority for Canada).

    GTA support will issue an RMA number with instructions to return the failed unit. Upon receipt of the replacement unit, the customer must return the failed unit to GTA within three (3) business days, freight prepaid and insured since GTA is not liable for loss or damage during transit. The defective unit must be packaged in either the original packing material or the “hot swap” packaging material.

  •   Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) Updates.
  •   Mail Proxy Anti-Virus subscription.

Support Incident

Support is measured and provided in case incidents. Incidents are tracked after the conclusion of the 30 day "up and running" support offered with each new unit. Resolution time per incident will depend on the nature of the technical support question. An incident is considered closed whenever one of the following two conditions has been met:

  1. The problem with the GTA product is resolved and the GTA product is functioning.
  2. OR
  3. The problem is determined not to be with the GTA product, but with another network component.
