KAPPA Chooses Flexera Software FlexNet Publisher Software Licensing Solution to Establish Long-Term Intellectual Property Protection

Broad Operating System Support, Strong Anti-Piracy Protection and Market Leadership Were Decisive Differentiators Over Competing Solutions

Schaumburg, IL - Jun 29, 2010 - Flexera Software, the leading provider of strategic solutions for Application Usage Management to application producers and their customers, today announced that KAPPA has chosen FlexNet Publisher as its long-term, strategic solution for software licensing and intellectual property protection.

Founded 25 years ago, KAPPA has established itself as a leader in providing petroleum exploration and production software to the oil and gas industry. The KAPPA software portfolio, which is sold and used globally, includes pressure transient analysis, production logging interpretation, production analysis, reservoir simulation and well performance analysis. Given its global reach and diverse customer base, KAPPA software is widely deployed on operating systems ranging from 64-bit Windows to Linux and frequently deployed in markets where copy protection policies and practices are not up to international standards.

"KAPPA was seeking a robust, sophisticated and proven software licensing technology for its entire product portfolio," said Olivier Houze, managing director at KAPPA. "Based on new market trends and specific requests from our customers, KAPPA chose FlexNet Publisher to enable software licensing and protect the substantial intellectual property in our software products. After evaluating all of the available alternatives, we chose FlexNet Publisher because it is the de facto industry standard, provides support for all major operating systems and delivers industrial strength software piracy protection."

FlexNet Publisher software licensing makes it easy for software vendors and high-tech manufacturers to manage, secure, enhance, and grow market share through flexible pricing, packaging, licensing, and protection of their software. FlexNet Publisher software licensing management is a core component of the FlexNet Producer Suite for Software Vendors, Flexera Software's Entitlement and Compliance Management Solution, which enables software vendors and high-tech manufacturers to increase revenues, get products to market faster and simplify customer relationships.

"KAPPA represents the type of software producer that FlexNet Publisher was designed for," said Priya Rajagopalan, director of product management at Flexera Software.
