Answer

This is an alert send out by NS. It is under Configuration tab, Notification Policies > Product License AUP Expiration Notice. 

If you do not wish to get any more alerts, you may disable the policy.
However if you click on the "Edit Parameters', you can change the default "56" to a lower value.

AUP stands for Annual Upgrade Protection. If you have a valid AUP, you are entitled for upgrade. Most of the solutions will still function normally even if it expires. The only exception is the Patch Management. It will not be able to get the latest bulletins release if the AUP expires. Refer to Article ID 26424.
