SoftwareKey is a Business Partner You Can Trust

Our company began working with SoftwareKey ten years ago to help us protect our flagship software. Our company had been victimized by a torrent download site that was giving away our software for free. We were devastated that our hard work and the livelihood of our company’s existence was being given away. Our software needed protection.

SoftwareKey was the perfect answer. Their products helped us to easily wrap and protect our executables. The software was easy to learn and use. We found that we actually had better contact with our customers via SoftwareKey’s activation and registration system.

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.

We Have Been a Protection PLUS User for 20 Years!

We are test specialists in leadership selection & development, hiring, career testing, and clinical & personality testing.

We have been a Protection PLUS user for 20 years. We have hundreds of software installations that rely on SoftwareKey's protection.

We needed a solution that didn't require USB devices, was resistant to tampering but also resistant to protection failures, in order to reduce our support costs and increase customer satisfaction.

We particularly like the simple integration into our Windows software. We needed to be able to track licenses and pay-per-use to computers not on public networks. As Windows has evolved, so has the Protection PLUS product.

We're looking forward to upgrading to Protection PLUS 5 SDK and taking advantage of network licensing and the .NET model.

You can't hack them!

The difference with SoftwareKey System protection is that it binds itself with the code without modifying the code. If someone were to crack into the software they would crack the code, giving them a broken program.

We went out to companies and we paid top notch crackers hourly to try to crack the software, and then we said, 'if you crack it we'll give you $10,000 cash.' No one has ever cracked it.

Your Automation Generates More Income

You have allowed us to automate much of our licensing process and saved us a lot of time in terms of resource allocation. As a result, we have sold more products and generated more income.

Cloud-Controlled Network Floating Licensing has Greatly Simplified our License Authentication Process

Our institute provides leading-edge bridge engineering software tools for use in bridge design.

Configuration and management of client licenses is quite easy with SOLO Server. The code samples provided to help set up the licensing interface between our products and the licensing libraries are thorough and intuitive. I particularly liked having separate projects corresponding to all recent versions of Visual Studio.

The Cloud-Controlled Network Floating Licensing option has greatly simplified our license authentication process. Moving from a LAN approach to a WAN approach has also made our clients' lives easier, as they only need to manage one account for all offices instead of the one-license-per-office approach. And if it makes our clients happy, it makes us happy.

License authentication time using the Cloud approach is proving to be significantly faster than license authentication using a WAN approach in conjunction with some clients' own server.

The SoftwareKey team has been extremely responsive in assisting us with implementation of cloud-controlled network licensing. They've answered our questions and helped with troubleshooting on multiple occasions, including outside of normal business hours.

SoftwareKey support is second to none

I would certainly recommend the SoftwareKey System to others on the basis that SoftwareKey support is second to none. Allowing for the time difference, every e-mail I have sent – and there have been quite few – has always been answered straight away with good sound advice. Other suppliers I have dealt with sometimes take days to respond to a support call. Each support analyst is very familiar with their product and provides excellent, precise support.

Fast custom build for the ARMv8 platform!

We were quickly able to integrate licensing into our product. The SoftwareKey team also produced the required libraries for ARMv8, which they had never built before, for a reasonable price. The team produced the libraries quickly allowing us to license our software on that architecture easily. Working with SoftwareKey was great - very easy to work with!

Awesome multiple platform support!

We challenged SoftwareKey to provide Protection PLUS 5 libraries for Mac and Linux platforms as our desire was to have a single licensing solution that would cover all our platform offerings. SoftwareKey answered that challenge with resounding results. Not only did they provide us multi-platform licensing, they provided us the ability to issue a common key for products sharing multiple platforms.
