Pros: This package allowed me to added licensing to my code that I sell. The code is in FORTRAN, and SafeGuard LM has an example for that. It also works with all the other main codes. I have to pinch my self that this type of software is available without a lease and for an amazingly manageable price. Really, if you need an LM for your code, you shouldn't look any further. This is the LM code for everyone. Tiny companies to HUGE companies can all benefit from using this code instead of the other ultra expensive LM codes out there.

Cons: I want to be very fair in my review to not sound like I am a marketer of this code. With that said, I have nothing to add to the cons area. I was given one-on-one help to get started when I felt completely overwhelmed by the whole LM world and how to add it to my code. This package just works and is seamless in my usage.

Pros: We came from using one of the big and expensive copy protection programs. Since we started using Safeguard LM we finally have a program that is extremely stable and that gives you great support the few times you need it.

Cons: Hard to think of any. Maybe that it lacks some functionality, but it is nothing we can not live with.

Secure our app over more OS....

Comments: The Persistent Security team reached out to me a few years ago after I posted on a public forum looking for a suitable license solution for my software, I am so glad they did!

After an initial call with the developer to understand how SafeGuard LM works, I decided to try it. The rare language I was developing in was not supported initially but they quickly added support and helped me to get up and running for no additional cost.

SafeGuard LM has been an absolute dream to use since then. It's packed with features. Also PS have consistently been extremely accommodating with my requests and helping to solve any issues. The software is very reliable and just works.

I cannot recommend this product and company highly enough!

Jon, you have been a royal pain in the behind. But absolutely one of the best customers. If it wasn't for all your crazy Windows users that want to put spaces and single quotes in their usernames, and hostnames we wouldn't be where we are today. Thank you for your review and being a friend.

Comments: I have a small company beginning to launch software products and I was feeling intimidated as I started to look at license management options. SafeGuard LM is a perfect fit for my needs. I had a couple of questions during implementation and the support team was prompt, patient, and courteous. SafeGuard LM was simple to implement while allowing the flexibility I was looking for. On top of it all, the price was reasonable. Highly recommended!

Pros: -Terrific customer support, i.e. same day or sooner email response to my problems

-Fits my budget

-Simple and straightforward API

Cons: -Would be nice to have additional automation when it comes to reseeding binaries following a Safeguard LM software update. I wrote my own script to do this.

Overall: In looking for licensing SW platform that meets all my needs, SafeGuard LM checks all the boxes. It puts the developers needs first which is very important for me as a small business with a software product I intend to monetize.

Comments: SafeGuard provides a very competitively priced solution for software licensing, supporting most popular modern operating systems and languages. A usual set of license types is available (node-locked, floating, trial), licenses can be generated based on different built-in methods of identification or a custom host ID. API is well-designed and easy to use, thanks to well-written documentation. Customer support is excellent.
