Modern Guardant dongles in combination with unique firmware do not just offer reliable protection of applications against unauthorized copying, but also support a flexible and intelligent application licensing policy.
A wide range of licensing scenarios is possible due to Guardant API and special features of keys with loadable code. Automatic protection and licensing tools are also available: Guardant Protection Center and Licensing Wizard included in Guardant SDK.
They help to fully manage the lifecycle of protection and the dongle:
- Full license update on the end user side: replacing one application version with another.
- Designing and creating licenses for a new software product.
- Updating license terms on the end user side: extending the network pool, renewing the license period.
- Licensed application updates: bug fixes, functionality expansions.
- Transferring existing licenses to dongles.
The licensing technology offers software developers and publishers multiple ways to distribute applications, as well as conveniently organized business processes.
