Frost & Sullivan Honors SafeNet’s Software Monetization Product Line Strategy
Today, Frost & Sullivan has recognized SafeNet Inc. with its Global Product Line Strategy Award in Software License Management. The global leader in data protection received the accolade for its market-leading Sentinel licensing and entitlement management solutions.
Effective prevention of license abuse and piracy is a paramount concern for any independent software vendor (ISV). Doing so, in an efficient, seamless, reliable and cost effective manner can be a challenge, particularly as data moves to more complex and fluid environments.
SafeNet’s range of software licensing products support both simpler licensing needs as well as highly complex deployment scenarios. According to Avni Rambhia, Senior Analyst at Frost & Sullivan, “By complementing their traditional dongle-based solutions with software- and cloud-based enforcement options, SafeNet is in a unique position of allowing ISVs the flexibility to choose the option or options that best meet their requirements and goals.”
Strengths of SafeNet’s Sentinel Software Monetization Product Line Strategy include:
- A broad and comprehensive portfolio of licensing and rights enforcement solutions that protect licenses whether they are embedded, installed on-premise, or in the cloud.
- A flexible and scalable product line that enables customers to best meet changing business models, enforcement preferences and deployment scenarios ranging from desktop, or embedded software to the cloud.
- Their strong emphasis on application analytics is also valuable to publishers, as it provides support for virtualized execution software, enabling grace periods for software use and pay by usage models.
- Well-designed, reliable, efficient and seamless functionality enables customers to reduce development time and lower overhead costs.
Rambhia adds, “SafeNet’s Sentinel product line covers the broadest range of markets and user cases—both current and emerging. This translates into the strongest revenue share in the software license management space today, and continued potential to dominate this market.”
