/PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent
analysis of the software license management (LM) market, Frost & Sullivan
recognizes SafeNet, Inc. with the 2011 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for
Product Line Strategy. SafeNet accounts for more than half of the software LM
market today. This award recognizes the depth and breadth of the company's
Sentinel suite in a market that favors one-stop vendors.
The Sentinel suite comprises four elements. The first is the Sentinel HASP,
which provides LM for desktop and enterprise applications, enforced through
software or using dongles. It includes a set of back-office integration and
reporting tools, application analytics and reporting, and support for
virtualization.
The second component, the Sentinel RMS, is a full-fledged LM platform that
enables power users to implement customized business models. It supports a
broad range of enterprise use cases in a scalable and reliable manner. For
entitlement management, Sentinel RMS integrates out of the box with Sentinel
EMS, a centralized, Web-based entitlement management platform.
Sentinel EMS helps manage and automate all licensing activity including
entitlement generation, registration, activation, and license distribution. EMS
provides the critical functionality of integrating the independent software
vendor's (ISV's) back office systems with their one or many software LM
system(s). SafeNet EMS integrates cleanly into the back-office, providing a
consistent interface for all types of protected products (desktop, embedded or
services) across various types of deployments (hardware or software locking,
on-premise, or software as a service (SaaS)).
The fourth component is the cloud-based Sentinel Cloud, which is the only
cloud-based license management solution available today for SaaS and on-
premise software vendors looking to monetize all or a portion of their software
portfolio as a service. Sentinel Cloud is designed to serve the fast-growing SaaS
segment, which is gaining momentum as a competing or complementary
offering to traditional on-premise software applications. It offers a deep set of
features and aids a wide set of use cases, giving it a competitive edge and
solving urgent business needs for software vendors. SafeNet also has a well
established consulting and professional services arm to help larger publishers
with planning and implementation of LM. As an example of synergy across
Sentinel suite components, the hosted version of Sentinel EMS is a key
component of Sentinel Cloud.
