I recently purchased a new server for our small business with you guessed it SBS 2011.  The company I purchased this with also sold us SEP for virus protection.

However,  when I went to purchase an additional licence they (I spoke to a different person) came back saying that this would not cover the emails and we now need to upgrade to SYMC PROTECTION SUITE ADVANCED BUSINESS EDITION.  I am a little confused because this is only a month later and we purchased a 12 month subscription to begin with to be told now that we need to upgrade when they speced the server and new we had exchange.

What do we actually need (the company is only about 15 people)?

Do we need Symantec Mail Security or SYMC PROTECTION SUITE ADVANCED BUSINESS EDITION  and been missed sold in the first place.   Or are we protected just using Symantect Endpoint  Protection for Small Business Server and they just want to get more money out of us?
