In the cloud, protection and licensing come in many shapes and guises:
Software developers want to enable their users to access local software with a license kept in the cloud.
Software developers supply their users with SaaS solutions operated in the cloud. The required licenses might be tied to a single user or a given number of devices.
Software developers want their users to have a reliable means of authentication for using their SaaS applications.
Users might want to install and run software independently on their own private clouds.
Cloud Licenses for SaaS Applications
You can offer your users a SaaS application with unrestricted or temporary licenses for different features. CodeMeter Cloud Lite offers you a simple and lean way of reconciling the online and offline worlds, especially when you are already using CodeMeter for on-premise software and have integrated the license creation processes with your SAP, Salesforce, or any other ERP, CRM or e-commerce system.
The licenses for SaaS applications are created in the same manner that is used for on-premise licenses; they only differ in the binding scheme, using CodeMeter Cloud Lite in the place of CodeMeter SmartBind or CmDongles. A license is created and assigned to a user in a process that does not differ from the activation of a local license – you can even combine both forms. You can integrate your user admin processes with Single-Sign-On solutions like OAuth2 or SAML.
