Top 5 key features Developers watch for when selecting Software Licensing Solutions

We spoke with 100 independent developers and here’s what they named as their Top Five Preferences when selecting software copy protection & software license management solutions:

  1. Basic Security

    • A streamlined solution that protects their software, documents and files from illegal copying and distribution.
    • CRYPKEY SOLUTION: As the first company to create software based protection, we specialize in understanding the level of security your business needs and developing the best solution for you.
  2. Ease of Use

    • Simple solution with a variety of security options to control how the copy protection and licensing integrates with their product.
    • CRYPKEY SOLUTION: Our product is simply designed to make the software licensing process easy and comes with a step-by-step user manual as well as one on one technical support from our experts.
  3. Customer Confidence

    • The ideal is to make the software licensing as difficult as possible for non-paying, unauthorized users …but never at the expense of causing frustration to good paying customers.
    • CRYPKEY SOLUTION: We prevent unauthorized user access by protecting your product with industry leading encryption, preventing reverse engineering and locking your product to a specific computer(s).
  4. Extensive Features

    • Several developers found protection software products that appeared to have the features they wanted but which were not able to meet their criteria.
    • CRYPKEY SOLUTION: For 25 years we have made it a top priority to evolve our features list by developing innovations inspired by the challenges our customers were facing with their copy protection. Our cloud-based software licensing can be automatically added using CrypKey Instant in as little as a few minutes.
  5. Simplified Pricing

    • Many customers require flexible software licensing pricing models that fit within their budget and do not charge royalties.
    • CRYPKEY SOLUTION: Our simplified pricing includes various subscription options allowing you to select a pricing model that suits your business and your budget. And you do not pay royalties.
