Electronic Software Delivery

Electronic Software Delivery (ESD) solutions including Akamai’s Web Application Accelerator enable software publishers to deliver applications digitally faster and more reliably than ever. Other software delivery applications do not, however, integrate easily into software licensing business processes, which creates challenges and limitations for software publishers, including:

  • Complicated, manually-driven software purchasing and software delivery processes
  • Diminished control over access to enhanced, fee-for-download software downloads

To provide an improved software download experience and to streamline their entire software delivery and management process, a software publisher needs to integrate their ESD solution with an industry-proven entitlement management system like Sentinel EMS.

Thales has partnered with Akamai, the leader in software delivery, to provide software publishers with a complete, trustworthy solution for secure, automated, electronic software delivery. This partnership enables software publishers to improve the end-user software purchasing and software activation experience, while protecting revenue and reducing internal operating costs.
