Flexible Software License Enforcement
RMS enables software vendors to easily offer a variety of software licensing models to flexibly price and package software products, increasing revenue opportunities. With Sentinel RMS, you can easily meet sales leaders’ demands for new software licensing models without modifying your applications.
The RMS high-level APIs support the widest range of software license models in the industry. RMS supports any business model - from a variety of software evaluation models to standalone node-locked or network license deployments, as well as remote users. With RMS, you can easily implement feature-based licensing, as well as pay-per-use and floating licenses.
Best Customer Experience
Sentinel RMS provides the tools to ensure reliable end user experiences, such as Grace Period Licensing™ which ensures legitimate users are never denied access to their applications due to network outages. Additionally, redundant license servers also enable failover support and high availability for your enterprise customers.
Scalable Software Licensing Security
With Sentinel RMS, licensing can be enforced in a variety of ways, enabling you to control the level of transparency to end users. Software security can be easily adjusted at fulfillment, without having to incur any additional development costs.
RMS allows you to bind a license to either an out-of-the-box machine fingerprint, a SafeNet Software Licensing Hardware Key, or a custom-defined lock code. This offers complete flexibility with how applications can be bound to their installations.
Easy License Server Administration for Minimal Customer Disruption
End user frustration can quickly add up to high support costs and revenue leakage. With Sentinel RMS, licensing can be a flexible, painless experience, while ensuring software license compliance. For example, RMS includes an easy to install, cross-platform license server that requires no configuration.
Additionally, RMS provides useful license management tools to your customer. The Sentinel RMS License Manager incorporates Vendor Isolation functionality which allows end customers to manage their own instance of the RMS license manager on a machine alongside other license managers; this enables independent usage logging and ignores any global configurations such as environment variables to avoid any conflicts. RMS helps keep the honest user honest by providing vital information on license expirations and usage statistics. All licensing activity is automatically logged, ensuring end customers have permanent records. License server administration also gives the systems administrator real-time visibility to ongoing licensing activities.
Protect Once – Deliver Many™
Sentinel RMS separates the software protection process from the business aspects of licensing, enabling you to define new products and pricing strategies on-the-fly without engineering involvement. Because licensing parameters are set within the license, rather than the application, very few parameters need to be defined at implementation.
