AppOnChip: Protecting Software with Hardware Keys Just Got Stronger

SafeNet just announced that their Sentinel LDK software protection solution is now the most secure software licensing implementation available with the launch of AppOnChip functionality.  Part of the Sentinel® Envelope file-wrapper technology, AppOnChip allows software developers to go beyond authorizing application usage.  At run time, blocks of the application execute code are triggered on the token, strengthening the requirement of having a physical key and protecting the software from unauthorized usage.   ISVs can quickly and seamlessly enable this enhanced security feature which is provided at no extra cost during this introductory period.

SafeNet’s Software Monetization CTO, Michael Zunke, highlights ease of use for both the ISV and the legitimate end user as one of the many benefits of AppOnChip.  For the additional benefits of this innovative technology, read the full AppOnChip press release or learn more about AppOnChip from the SafeNet website.

Software Licensing Trends – Past, Present, and Future

As a part of that interview, Panjwani attributed much of the company’s growth to a strategy comprised largely of acquisition and adaptation. Through several strategic acquisitions, SafeNet has positioned itself well within the evolving security landscape.

One trend that Panjwani is seeing first hand is the evolution of companies migrating to the cloud.

Hardware Keys: The “Old Reliable” of Software Licensing

In today’s day and age, we are always just around the corner from the latest technological breakthrough. Just look at the innovation that software licensing has undergone in the past ten years, and you’ll see how far we’ve come.

With all of the talk about hybrid software protection, the cloud… it is so easy to forget about the many benefits of the timeless hardware key. I’d like to take just a moment to pay homage to the ‘classic, iconic’ dongle and how VSM Software Ltd., the leading provider of software to SVP Worldwide (Singer Husqvarna and Pfaff), is using Sentinel HASP HL to address all of their licensing needs.

Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA)

HR 3261, or the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) is currently being considered in the US congress.  Like most legislation that deals with the Internet, it comes with a certain amount of controversy.

At its heart, the bill is designed to help prevent the illegal distribution of intellectual property – music, movies, software, books, periodicals and so on.  Even today the notion of copying media is still somehow not perceived as stealing by many people.  While walking in to a bookstore or music store and taking something without paying for it is clearly understood to be stealing, many people don’t consider the download of the same material to be illegal.  It is.  Regardless of the legality – when people stop to think about it – they realize that it is morally wrong.
