+<h2>Professional Services for OpenVAS</h2>
+Currently OpenVAS is close to complete the full chain of
+software tools to manage network securuity scans including
+the development and distribution of Network Vulnerability Tests (NVTs).
+Traditionally (and in contrast to its origin Nessus), the OpenVAS project is entirely dedicated
+to the Free Software concept. This is not in conflict with commercial aspects.
+The professional support for OpenVAS by nature is transparent for the customers -
+they directly see what they pay for. Apart from that, does a black box security
+scanner add to security? With OpenVAS you do not need to believe colored brochures
+or smart salesmen, OpenVAS faces up to any sort of review for source code and
+internal concepts.
+<h3>Planned Professional Services</h2>
+As soon as the full tool chain is in operation and NVTs are developed
+continously, the following professional services are planned:
+<li> NVT feed subscription: Get systematically developed and verified
+     scan tests as early as possible. Maybe, these NVTs will enter the public feed
+     a couple of days later.
+<li> OpenVAS Support: Help for any problem related to setting up
+     and operating a OpenVAS installation.
+<li> OpenVAS Training: Courses to learn how to use OpenVAS and optimize
+     it for individual purposes.
+Many other ideas are conceivable. 
+Committed and competent companies are welcome to offer such services. 
+The OpenVAS team as such will not set up any commercial services. 
+However, coordination with the OpenVAS team is appreciated for
+the benefit of all parties involved.
+At the end of the day the professional services will ensure a sustainable
+feed with a stable and comfortable OpenVAS tool chain being all Free Software.
