What is the SoftwareKey System?
The SoftwareKey System is a turnkey solution that allows you to maintain control of your software for the entire lifecycle of the license.
At SoftwareKey, we have developed a 3-step approach to help you achieve your goals:
Our central license server, SOLO Server Automation, automates the license distribution and activation process, and allows you to monitor usage of your software while easily managing your customers and licenses.

We have found that it is easy to underestimate the level of detail involved in successfully launching and maintaining software license management, which is why we offer Professional Services options to supplement our standard support.

Both Simple and Powerful Licensing Interfaces

- .NET Edition (.NET Framework and .NET Standard supported)

SOLO Server Automation
Continually monitoring licenses is required to maximize the control over your software, and SoftwareKey Automation provides you that power.
Validation with the server allows you to securely enforce license deactivations and transfers, including remote deactivations. This can be fully automated, and your customers can use self-service features to transfer their own licenses.
License updates can be made on the server, such as a renewed subscription or upgraded license entitlements, and your software can "refresh" the license from the server to get this updated data.
If the end-user tries to block connection to the license server, your software can require a successful server validation before it is allowed to run, ensuring that you maintain the control over your software.
Each SoftwareKey System package is equipped with the same core features and is compatible with any of our Protection PLUS licensing clients. Sign up for a risk-free 30-day trial account now.
