Answers to the Creative Cloud for teams FAQs...

What is Adobe Creative Cloud for Teams?

Creative Cloud is an ongoing membership that gives your team access to all of the Adobe Creative Suite® 6 desktop applications, plus Adobe Muse, Acrobat XI, Lightroom 4, Edge tools and services, and more. Creative Cloud for teams makes it easy to collaborate through file sharing with 100GB per seat of cloud-based storage, and provides services for publishing websites, iPad apps, and more. Creative Cloud for teams is purchased and managed centrally, making it easier than ever to manage your software investment. Best of all, membership means that your team members get access to new applications and feature updates as soon as they are released, giving them the ability to stay ahead of the curve.

What is the difference between Creative Cloud for individuals and Creative Cloud for teams?

Membership to Creative Cloud for teams includes everything you get in an individual Creative Cloud membership, plus administrative tools for centralized license purchase and management, increased storage capacity, and expert services.

How much more storage capacity does Cloud for Teams give vs Individual?

For a team membership, each person is entitled to 100GB of storage, allowing you to view, edit, store, and share files across your team. You can allocate the amount of Cloud storage each team member gets. As an example if you have 5 seats, your organization gets a total of 500GB Cloud storage. You could allocate 150GB each to your 2 video editors, 100 GB to your After Effects artist and 50 GB each to your 2 graphics artists.

For an individual membership, storage is limited to 20GB per user.

What does Videoguys recommend - Creative Cloud for Teams or Individual?

This is an excellent question and it really depends on the size of your organization.

Videoguys recommends the Individual Cloud for small groups needing 1-4 seats of Creative Cloud. We would advise you to set up individual accounts for each seat, tied to a specific emails from your corporate domain. As an example, we would set up editor01@, editor02@, etc. for our editors here at Videoguys. This will make managing your individual seats easier, and have them registered to your organization, rather than your employees. You will not be able to leverage all of the cloud based collaboration tools of Cloud for Teams, but in your smaller organization this may not matter. Videoguys will be offering Creative Cloud Individual for $359 per year.

If you require more than 5 seats of Cloud, then Cloud for Teams is the way to go. Managing your accounts will be much easier, and you will be able to allocate your shared storage any way you like. You can also control who in your organization gets access to the Cloud and the Adobe software at any given time. This ability to activate your users as needed allows you to stretch your Cloud resources across your organization as needed each step along the production process.

I currently buy Adobe products under TLP/CLP. Can I add Creative Cloud for teams under this program?

No, Creative Cloud for teams is sold through a new Adobe licensing program called Value Incentive Plan (VIP) .

Are there a minimum or maximum number of seats required in order to join Creative Cloud for teams?

Creative Cloud for teams is suitable for companies, teams, and workgroups of all sizes. Larger enterprises may require extended deployment capabilities as well as federated ID (LDAP integration or single sign-on), which will be supported through Creative Cloud for enterprises. Please contact a Videoguys specialist at 800-323-2325 if you would like to learn more.

I have Creative Cloud Team Ready. Can I upgrade to Creative Cloud for teams?

If you are a Creative Cloud Team Ready customer, you will receive an email notice about migrating to Creative Cloud for teams. After reviewing the details and accepting the terms and conditions, you will enroll by exchanging your Creative Cloud Team Ready license for a Creative Cloud for teams license. From there, you will receive access to an administrator console for inviting and managing users.

I have an individual Creative Cloud membership. Can I upgrade to Creative Cloud for teams?

Yes. If you have an individual Creative Cloud membership, you can cancel with no penalty and reenroll as part of your company's team membership.

How do I cancel my individual Creative Cloud membership to start using the team membership?

Your IT administrator will send you an invitation to join Creative Cloud for teams. Once you have accepted the invitation, you will be prompted to contact Adobe Customer Service to cancel your individual membership.

If I cancel my individual Creative Cloud membership, will I need a new Adobe ID to join Creative Cloud for teams?

As an IT administrator, how do I install Creative Cloud?

Once you have purchased Creative Cloud from, you log in to the Creative Cloud Admin Console and follow the easy instructions for getting started. You do not install for your team; once a team member has accepted the invitation, he or she needs to log in to Creative Cloud to download and install applications.

How do I manage and administer my Creative Cloud seats?

Creative Cloud for teams comes with administrative tools that enable teams or companies to easily manage and scale their software investment. The Admin Console allows you to centrally manage licenses; assign, add, or redeploy seats; track usage; and more.

Can I assign someone on the team to manage my Creative Cloud seats?

Yes, anyone with a valid Adobe ID can be assigned to be a team administrator. Note that unless explicitly invited to be a full member of the team, a team administrator does not count towards the number of seats you have purchased.

How and where can I purchase additional Creative Cloud storage?

Please call Adobe Customer Service if you would like storage added to a specific account.

If a team member leaves the company, what happens to their files stored in Creative Cloud?

Do Creative Cloud members on the same plan have to work at the same company?

No, you can extend a Creative Cloud membership to anyone with an email address. It is important to note that an invitation for a Creative Cloud membership can only be accepted by the email address/person to whom the invitation was sent.

What is the Creative Cloud security model?

Creative Cloud for teams leverages the same security model as Creative Cloud for individuals. Creative Cloud is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) in the United States, Europe, and Asia. AWS offers a reliable platform for software services used by thousands of businesses worldwide. AWS provides services in accordance with security best practices and undergoes industry-recognized certifications and audits: PCI DSS Level 1, ISO 27001, FISMA Moderate, HIPAA, and SAS 70 Type II. This means that Adobe Creative Cloud members benefit from the latest in security practices for stored assets.

How secure is the storage space on Creative Cloud?

Adobe uses industry-leading security engineering processes in building its products. With Creative Cloud, security is considered at every level, from applications to networks to physical facilities. In addition to the latest technologies, Adobe adheres to the latest best-practice policies regarding online security.

What security is used at the application level? What security measures are in place during file transfer, and are stored files encrypted?

Adobe Creative Cloud uses industry-leading encryption technology to secure the transfer and storage of our members' data. When you use the service and transfer files, 256-bit AES Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption is used for both user authentication and data transfer encryption, helping to ensure that your data and documents are available only to you and the users you authorize. This is the same industry-leading technology used by the world's financial institutions and governments. The service issues a session cookie only to record authentication information for the duration of a specific session. The session cookie does not include the username (Adobe ID) or password of the user. For stored Creative Cloud assets, users benefit from the industry-leading security and certifications provided by Amazon Web Services.

What network-level security is used?

Creative Cloud leverages firewall protection, intrusion detection systems, SSL encryption, and proprietary protocols to protect your important information. The services are hosted in a protected server environment that uses a firewall and other advanced technology to help prevent interference or access from outside intruders.

What physical security is in place for the servers that host Creative Cloud?

Services hosting facilities are protected by multiple layers of physical security, and only authorized personnel may access the facilities and servers. In addition, all facility access is logged, and logs are regularly reviewed and protected from outside access. All data center equipment has physical protections in place against data theft and environmental hazards in order to prevent assets from being lost, damaged, or compromised and to prevent interruption in business activities.
