"Two thumbs up for this software!"

Comments: My Software licensing requirements are fairly simple, I only use it to provide node-locked (MAC address) licensing and temporary licensing. For these purposes it works perfectly and the pricing is very competitive compared to other companies licensing software. I am a small software developer and the pricing of the previous software licensing I used was a not small part of my sales cost. On top of the very competitive pricing, in the very few times I needed assistance, Persistent software has been very responsive and responded to my queries in a day or less.

Pros: It does exactly what I need for a very attractive price.

Cons: Nothing, it does everything I need and was easy to use.

Thank you Jeff,
Being a customer of Persistent Security for 8 years is really important. You purchased in our 3rd year with version 4. A lot has happened since then. You have stuck with us and we appreciate it. Thank you again.

"Simple to use"

Comments: Aside from problems with the TCP port being blocked so we changed it on the client for TCP port 443 in order to get through proxy servers to connect to licence server via a HAPROXY server, we had to restart the licence server once, and we have to manage the issuing/modification of licence on the MySQL server, which is fine

Pros: Easy to install
Efficient software : small install size, small memory impact on the server, no dependencies on framework, libraries
Client side many examples in different languages to use the software
Many possibilities to chose from for licensing

Cons: Licence only locked by MAC address from the client computer
we have licence renewals every quarter, but in case of licence cancelled and transferred to another computer before the end of the quarter, there is no way to check if the licence is still valid as the client will contact the server at the end of quarter for a renewal

"A choice I made that I'm proud of"

Comments: It's outstanding my expectations. I found an extra module for windows (anti-hacking), plus I receive regular updates. Excellent work!

Pros: I like the way I could master all pieces of the licensing system. It's really customisable. I really control what I'm doing. The examples were absolutely helpful, and all my required use cases are covered by them.
Integration with my products was easy.

Cons: The only thing taht I still have to develop is a small web app on the internal network that help non-tech guys to generate license for their customers.

Thank you Zoran for your review,

I agree it was a rocky start almost two years ago. Several of the things you pointed out in the documentation have been cleared up. I see you have not downloaded the latest 6.4 version with these changes that was released November 29, 2019.

"Powerfull and easy to use solution"

Comments: After losing months with other products - without any success, we have decided to use SafeGuard LM. We have managed to set it up and test in couple of days. Prompt response and 1:1 support were extremely helpful.

Pros: It has almost all the features we need.
Extremely easy to use compared to other products.
Integration is straightforward.
Customer support is excellent.
Simple to use but powerful solution.

Cons: There is really nothing worthy of being mentioned as a Cons.
