"I have used Zentitle for about 10 years and it is definitely the best licensing I have worked with in my support career.

I have worked with around 10 different licensing platforms and used many others with the products I purchased.

None have been as reliable, easy to use and implement for support and customers alike."

"Fantastic flexibility is key in how we license our software and features in order to provide a smooth experience for our end users.

Zentitle delivered on this and more. Enough tools to provide us with what we need to integrate with our existing business systems.

EUP is easy to set up giving our users more control over managing and distributing our licenses."

"Zentitle overall does a great job in getting a license solution to customers. The tool has plenty of features to match business requirements.

Maintaining an in-house solution would be expensive and time consuming.

Zentitle provides a service where you do not need to worry about this and focus on your business."

1000s of software companies have used Zentitle to launch new software products faster and control their entitlements easily, many going from startup to IPO on our cloud software license management solutions

What's in this video

So what does the Zentitle architecture overall look like? Well, of course, as you know, we have a cloud-based multi-tenant environment that acts as that central repository for all the licenses, all the entitlements, that your customers has purchased, as well as all your definitions of your various plans, what features should be included in which plan and so forth.

So once you have that established, then the way your applications can then reference those licenses and therefore enforce whatever license rates, you've sold.

Two main paths. One is for on-premise applications, and there, for Windows Mac, Linux, and so forth, we can generate a library for you that you would then embed into your application Your application at runtime to activate a license would make the appropriate calls into the library to pass on the credentials that the customer is using could be a license key, could be an identity.

Our library will then make the call back to the Zentitle Cloud, to take care of the actual activation, and then bring all the metadata for that license back into that cached environment sitting in that end customer device.

And so all of your interaction with licensing happens through our library that gives you a full suite of functions to be able to activate, deactivate, query, and so forth.

And it also calculates a fingerprint for that machine. So you can really reliably distinguish one, end user from another, as well as that also handles our virtualization detection and anti-cloning.

For SaaS environments, it's even easier, right? Within your SaaS application, again, could be single-tenant, could it be a multi-tenant.

You can make a straightforward rest based call into the Zentitle database and look up the appropriate entitlement for that customer, activate the seat and so forth and again, bring all that metadata back around that license as a straightforward JSON payload.

Now in both of these cases, you have full encryption across that connection. So you never have to worry about, you know, men in the middle attacks or other potential approaches to interrupting sort of the integrity of that entitlement enforcement.
