WALTHAM, Mass. -- V.i. Laboratories, Inc. (V.i. Labs), a provider of software protection solutions for securing high value and mission critical applications, announced today a partnership with Reprise Software, Inc., a provider of software license management systems for end-users and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs). The partnership combines V.i. Labs strong anti-piracy technology with Reprises license management system to provide comprehensive protection against software cracking threats.
The Reprise License Manager (RLM) is a software licensing solution that enables ISVs to more effectively price and license their products for sale to end-users. Unlike legacy licensing systems, RLM provides an open platform that is easy to integrate with existing applications, accessible reporting capabilities, and improved value-oriented pricing. Reprise Software was founded in January 2006 by Matt Christiano, who served as Chief Executive Officer of Globetrotter Software, Inc., the company that developed the FLEXlm license management system. Globetrotter Software was sold to Macrovision in 2000.
License management is a fundamental component of an ISVs anti-piracy strategy. At the same time, ISVs are demanding solutions that protect against common software cracks that lead to piracy, said Matt Christiano, CEO of Reprise Software. We saw significant value in V.i. Labs CodeArmor product because it provides strong protection for license management functions without impacting the software development process.
