SoftwareKey System Purchasing Options

The SoftwareKey System is comprised of:

  • Protection (licensing client) - This component is included in your software, which is distributed to customers.   It controls access to your software.
  • Automation (licensing server/service) - The protection component connects to a central licensing server on the web to automatically activate and validate licenses throughout the lifetime of the license.

New customers can choose between Protection Only or our most popular combination of Protection + Automation. Existing Protection customers can add Automation at any time.

Most customers use the Protection + Automation bundle below using our shared server infrastructure.   Enterprise customers wanting information on our Dedicated and Self-Hosted options can contact us.

Fantastic solutions provider who will bend over backwards to help

We have been able to provide entitlement management and software protection capabilities to two new .NET software products we are in the process of launching. The SoftwareKey team really puts their customers first and responds very quickly and effectively to support queries raised. Their software is also well designed and powerfully featured.

I recommend that you take advantage of their fantastic support.
