Key Traffic Systems Penetrate New Markets by Adding Sentinel HASP SL ‘software-based’ Licensing to its Traffic Management Software

Key Traffic Systems Ltd., the UK leader in highway and traffic management software, is also a longtime SafeNet customer. With a large and growing user base, KTS needed the ability to offer hardware or software-based licensing and secure downloads of its software to accommodate changing customer needs as well as appeal to new markets.

While Sentinel HASP HL was providing them robust protection against anti-piracy, they needed to add the flexibility that HASP SL offered.  “We wanted to launch our AutoSTRIPE software into the Australian and New Zealand markets and it was not practical to enter those markets with a hard lock key,” say Chris White, software development manager at KTS.

Simultaneously, a significant portion of the company’s current UK customer base was migrating to servers without USB ports, such as virtualized servers and blade, so hardware dongles were no longer an option.

Read how Sentinel HASP SL was implemented alongside HASP HL to solve all KTS’s business challenges.

Sentinel Cloud – the Evaluation Experience

The SentinelCloud team has been working hard to build and launch the latest addition to SafeNet’s family of Sentinel Software Monetization Solutions,  Sentinel Cloud Services.  While the service successfully made the transition from Beta to GA earlier this year, the team remains hard at work focused on customer evaluations and getting new customers up to speed, while at the same time planning and developing the roll out of new functionality over our quarterly release schedule.

Getting back to our interactions with customers … feedback has been nearly universally positive.  We have heard from customers of all types and sizes. .  Sentinel Cloud has appealed to  SaaS startups, transitioning on-premise software vendors,  and equipment manufacturers large and small. I would like to highlight one prospect who has completed their evaluation of Sentinel Cloud.

Sentinel Cloud Launches

In March we officially released Sentinel Cloud Services, the industry’s first and only software licensing and entitlement management solution delivered “from the cloud for the cloud”. In prior issues I have discussed some of the growing trends toward SaaS-based applications and the shift away from on-premise software from both an internal perspective and end user experience. At this moment, I want to assume that a large percentage of our customers have already embraced the benefits of SaaS and are beginning to think about transitioning some of their offerings to the cloud.

Introducing Software Licensing & Entitlement Management Delivered from the Cloud for the Cloud

Today SafeNet announced the release of Sentinel Cloud Services, the industry’s first and only software licensing and entitlement management service delivered from the cloud for the cloud.

Sentinel Cloud Services make it quick and easy for SaaS and PaaS vendors to build and manage their service offerings, ensure service agreement compliance, and simplify all of the operational processes associated with cloud service contract provisioning, authorization management, and usage tracking.
