These are small USB hardware devices, designed to control computer software execution. Entire solution is prepared in the way to cooperate with wide range of Windows operating systems, starting from Windows 2000 Professional up to latest 64 bit releases, like Windows 7, 8 or Server series.
Main goal is software security licensed per seat. The solution is a warranty that the software implementing it, will not be executed simultaneously on the number of hosts greater than the number of software security devices held. For big, modular projects the devices can determine about execution of individual modules. Software authors don't need to worry about many different binaries, each having specific modules built into it. There can be only one binary left, granting access to its specific parts, based on a license from a hardware device.
Thanks to protection keys, the need of sharing software license numbers over emails, phone lines or other communication systems might get eliminated too. The licensing credentials may be shortened to minimum - they are much harder to duplicate than these stored on a piece of paper.
This solution stands in the middle between printed serial number stickers and constant Internet access to communicate with software vendor controlled infrastructure, to execute locally installed software. More >>>
