GeoLogismiki review

Software licensing has become an easy task with Cryptlex and any problem we faced during implementation was solved promptly. After 15 years with perpetual licensing we were able to migrate to subscription based licenses with minimum effort!

Pros

Easy implementations, supports many platforms, integrates nicely with known e-commerce platforms

Cons

Nothing in particular, one problem we faced with Delphi implementation and callback function was a minor issue

Easy to integrate into my product, operations is seamless and reliable, tech support is top notch

Pros

I needed a licensing solution for my audio application and plugin that was reasonably priced, had a C++ library to easily integrate, and an operations portal (dashboard) that allowed for easy management of users and licenses. I also had a complex product configuration and licensing scenario in which when I had questions Cryptlex was able to answer in a timely manner with the right solution. The GitHub library of examples really helped me quickly integrate LexActivator into my C++ application. A dozen or so lines of code were required to get it working. And once working, it has continued to work seamlessly since. I also like that is available on virtually all platforms as it was a requirement for my product.

Cons

In my use case, there is nothing lacking with Cryptlex solution. It does what it advertises very well. There were no blockers in my project.

Reasons for Choosing Cryptlex

I looked at over a dozen product/solutions over several months and had all but given up on finding a licensing solution that would meet my requirements. Cryptlex was recommended to me by another company in my industry indicating that have had a good experience using the product, saying it was flexible and rock solid. Cryptlex ticked all of the boxes for having a C++ library that I can easily integrate into my app, on multiple OS platforms and devices. Fantastic having GitHub code examples on how to create, activate and manage a license. I had a complicated licensing scenario where a single product could have multiple instances on one computer and/or multiple computers and/or multiple OS's. Again easily solved with Cryptlex. The defence in depth strategy is best practice. One can also test and get going using Cryptlex at virtually no cost. This allowed for in-depth product testing without making a long term commitment. After 6 months of using Cryptlex, I am happy with my choice. The product works as advertised, easy to implement, easy to manage, rock solid service and tech support, all for a reasonable price. After using it for +6 months, I am glad I chose Cryptlex.

Cryptlex Review

This is the only LAAS product we found that could satisfy our requirements for silent licensing, and floating-concurrent seats.

Pros

Provided a very flexible floating-concurrent model for integration with our C# application. The Rest API is very easy to use, so that end users have "silent licensing", they are unaware of the Cryptlex service operating in the background.

Cons

The security around the Web API key could be improved.

Reasons for Choosing Cryptlex

Cost and functionality. The other products we looked at would all have required customisation to satisfy our needs.

Reasons for Switching to Cryptlex

We did not want to operate a cloud service for licensing, and our internally developed service was inflexible and difficult to maintain.

Very good

Pros

We needed a quick and easy way to get the crypto part of our licensing as we only have an SSO account login service - not a full license system

Cons

sadly didn't fit in our SSO solution, so we couldn't use user assigned license and needed to handle that part our own

Reasons for Choosing Cryptlex

We didn't want a full blown license system, we wanted the crypto help to our existing SSO solution and this was one of the best options, its had good solutions of the 4 things we needed: single-license, multi-license, trial and offline activation. Not many of the other contenders had all 4 and the ones that had all 4 also was more of a full license system.

Reasons for Switching to Cryptlex

We lost the person with the knowledge of the software and it was very expensive for the little use we had and wanted a less complicated system with lower learning curve
