Secure and Flexible Software Licensing
Recent trends indicate that in the software industry, pricing and software licensing policies are being made increasingly more flexible in order to improve vendor-customer relationships and grow revenue.
Sentinel HASP features secure software licensing options enabling the offering of attractive software product solutions and pricing models. Sentinel HASP supports multiple software licensing models directly out-of-the-box. Custom or specialized license options are also possible.
All of the above mentioned software licensing models can be locked to a Sentinel HASP HL hardware key or Sentinel HASP SL software key. If the out-of-the box software licenses don't fit your needs, Sentinel HASP also features the flexibility to create custom license models to suit unique business requirements.
Sentinel HASP provides customers with all of the tools necessary to confidently license their applications in virtualized environments. Every customer is unique, which is why Sentinel provides multiple protection schemes for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) selling their product into a virtualized environment, each with a different level of flexibility.
- Virtual Machine Detection and Deny—enables ISVs to detect the presence of a virtual machine (VM) and simply allow or disallow license authorization.
- Virtual Machine Binding—this feature enables ISVs to lock a license to several unique traits of a single VM and to prevent replication or “cloning” of the software application, therefore enabling secure licensing in a virtualized environment.
Software Copy Protection
To ensure you get paid for every software copy being used, Sentinel HASP employs the 128-bit AES encryption algorithm. This creates a robust link between the software application and Sentinel HASP Protection Key – preventing software piracy and ensuring authorized use of the software.
Strong Intellectual Property Protection
Sentinel HASP maintains your competitive advantage by providing the Intellectual Property Protection for your embedded software applications and application data files.
The Sentinel HASP Envelope is an automatic file wrapper that provides robust intellectual property protection against software reverse engineering through file encryption, code obfuscation, and system-level anti-debugging. This ensures that algorithms, trade secrets, and professional know-how embedded in the software are secured against hackers.
First and Only Protection and Licensing Solution to Support Java2 Enterprise Edition(J2EE) Applications
Sentinel HASP 5.1 is the only software licensing solution on the market that provides Method-level protection against reverse engineering of your highly-vulnerable Java2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) applications. Sentinel HASP automatically encrypts and hides your valuable intellectual property from both static code analysis and real-time debugging.
Combining automatic encryption and native code obfuscation, the HASP Envelope technology ensures your Java applications are no longer susceptible to decompiling and run-time modification.
Featuring granular Method-level protection and licensing without the need to implement licensing calls, The HASP Envelope provides superior intellectual property protection that is further hardened by locking to Sentinel’s industry-leading HASP HL or HASP SL protection and license enforcement keys.
Role Based Software Licensing & Management
Sentinel HASP features easy-to-use role-based tools for developers, product managers, order processing and production, ensuring a short learning curve, and optimum use of employee time and core competencies. This provides fast time-to-market and the ability to quickly respond to changing market needs.
Vendor Suite - The Sentinel HASP Vendor Suite is a programmer utility that includes all the tools necessary to protect applications from piracy and Intellectual Property theft.
Business Studio – Sentinel HASP Business Studio is a tool which your product and marketing staff use to prepare their software product for market. It includes all of the tools necessary to appropriately license and lock the application to a Sentinel HASP HL hardware key, or a Sentinel HASP SL software product key AFTER protection is implemented.
Business Studio Server– A component of the Sentinel HASP SRM Business Studio, the Business Studio Server, is used to activate software and perform remote updates, using Product Keys.
