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.

Integral in Getting Our Brand Off the Ground

SoftwareKey has been integral in getting our brand off the ground by creating a centralized portal for administrators and customers to access products, license keys, and activations. The SoftwareKey System was simple to integrate with our existing products.

It's Nice to See Sales Come in at 3am

SoftwareKey is a one stop shop for software protection. Tenacity has been using their solutions since we opened in 2004, and I would not consider going anywhere else. I love the SoftwareKey built-in shopping cart and tools they provide to protect our software from theft. It is nice to see sales come in at 3am.

The support that these guys offer is top notch. Dealing with the lowest technician all the way to the company owner has always been a pleasure.
