FlexNet ID Dongle
FlexNet Licensing with FlexNet ID Dongle Software Licensing Protection
Today's application producers need flexible software licensing options to protect their IP against software piracy. Some prefer the use of a dongle (or a combination of both software licensing and dongles) to protect their IP. A dongle is a serialized hardware key attached to a parallel or USB port on a computer. A dongle is used to limit or lock software access to whomever has the dongle attached to their system via the associated license file.
FlexNet ID Dongle
FlexNet ID Dongle enables you to limit or lock software access to your system. FlexNet ID Dongle works in conjunction with FlexNet Licensing to enhance security as a form of hostid. A FlexNet ID Dongle is automatically supported as a valid hostid by any FlexEnabled application. For additional information or to order dongles, please contact email@example.com.
