jProductivity has released Protection! 4, the newest version of its powerful licensing solution for software developers and publishers. Protection! provides a complete turnkey licensing package that lets software vendors lock pirates out of their copyrighted software.

This release introduces a new product - Protection! Enterprise - which is a new and complete turnkey solution designed to bring real value to software publishers by providing full automation of licensing processes together with management of licenses, customers, and evaluators. Protection! Enterprise is orchestrated to seamlessly work together with all other Protection! products in one feature-rich and coherent environment.

Protection! Enterprise oversees and manages licenses, license actions and customers. The software publisher or vendor is able to track evaluation licenses requested by users, manage commercial licenses issued to customers, and manage license activation and deactivation.

The latest version also introduces a new subscription-based pricing structure that includes unlimited use,  unlimited upgrades, and no royalty fees.

"The new Protection! Enterprise lets software publishers create an end-to-end licensing solution, at an affordable total cost of ownership," said Alexander Krivov, Chief Executive Officer of jProductivity.

Protection! Enterprise

Versatile Solution for Any Licensing Needs

"One of the most pressing reasons for software license protection is to prevent unintentional copies, either to end-users who are not internally allowed to use the software or because large organizations do not want un-purchased copies created, violating agreements and generating an unintended liability to vendors," said Alexander Krivov, Chief Executive Officer of jProductivity.

With the help of the Protection! Licensing Toolkit, Software publishers are able to easily and economically increase the scalability of their applications, control all aspects of licensing and tracking, and enable additional revenue generation models.

Protection! does not impose any processes on the software publisher and therefore can quickly and easily be adapted to any business model. "Protection!'s ease of use and ease of implementation give power to software developers to embed licensing support into their application in as little as a day," said Gregory Ledenev, Chief Technical Officer of jProductivity.

Protection! locks out the pirates. This comprehensive toolkit solves today's complex licensing challenges. The program minimizes users' ability to make unauthorized use of applications, and frees developers and software publishers to work on the core functionality that makes their applications great.
