Protection PLUS

A powerful, flexible software licensing toolkit

Protection PLUS software is the industry standard for software licensing and copy protection. It is your key to protecting your investment in your intellectual property and puts you in the driver's seat to distribute and sell your software.

 

Customer tested and approved

With an amazing range of functionality this powerful toolkit meets a wide range of customer needs. Protection PLUS™ is working tirelessly for over 5000 customers in 118 countries and protecting hundreds of millions of dollars of software.

Protect
With the Protection PLUS™ software licensing toolkit you can protect your software, create trial versions, implement Electronic License Activation and so much more.

Build
We can help you build very complex customised solutions to meet the most demanding business requirements. Our small company size with big company standards allows us to offer customisation services that large companies simply don't offer.

Automate
Electronic License Management allows you to maintain control of your software after it leaves your possession. Automate the disbursement of software updates while optionally collecting usage information and verifying that a customer's license is still valid.

Features

The sale of a software product is often similar to the sale of a CD or DVD. Once it is out of the supplier's hand, control is lost forever. Protection PLUS gives you control over your software, even after it has been downloaded by a purchaser.

Create trials, remotely activate your product, and use licensing tools to manage how your software is accessed. Plus, you get the guaranteed assurance knowing the SoftwareKey System will grow as your needs change, and its reliability has been field proven for almost two decades.
