Let CopyCheq deal with web based copy protection and license tracking. You don't have to worry about specialized software or hardware, servers, security, reliability, or maintenance.
CopyCheq just works.
Web apps have two giant advantages:
Software as a service doesn't have much piracy at all. All that's really left is "credential sharing", and even then you still know who to charge. But you don't have to move your whole app to the cloud to get the benefits. Just install with JExpress. Now whenever your software starts, it will automatically check the user's license first.
If you need more protection, you can move a tiny critical piece of your app to the web. Even an important file is usually enough. Your app server checks the license server. That way there's nothing on the user system to crack.
With JExpress you get the same automatic updates that a web app has. All your customers are up to date all the time. And with CopyCheq only the ones who are authorized for updates get them.
Suddenly your desktop app has both the piracy protection and auto updates of a web app.
You don't lose any of the work you've already done. You keep your fast rich user interaction. All your future updates and enhancements can go in the web app part. To keep up, crackers would have to rewrite everything you do from now on. They won't. Crackers are lazy.
If you plan to move to a web app, it's best to get the benefits first.
Know who is using your software but needs a license. Find out how engaged your users are.
See who's authorized and not, how frequently people use your software, how many sessions and how long they are, how much total time they spend with you, and more.
Each CopyCheq package tracks up to 50 customers or 5000 license checks per month. For more customers or more license checks you just get more packages.
