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.

SoftwareKey has Stamped Out Piracy for our Software

The SoftwareKey System is simple to use and reliable, and it has stamped out piracy of our software. If a user tries to copy a product for a friend, our implementation is such that it works initially and then times out after a few days so the user gets a chance to evaluate it and this often results in a sale!

I have previously taken several approaches to licensing. Using SoftwareKey's products have increased our sales and freed up my time. We have never had a problem with the product and we have been using it since 2008 - enough said.
