StarForce and InishTech sign partnership agreement

11.12.2009

StarForce and InishTech have officially executed a partnership agreement for cooperative promotion and reselling of their products.

InishTech, launched earlier this year as a result of the “spin out” from Microsoft of their Software licensing and Protection Service (SLPS) and StarForce, which is well known for its state-of-art source code protection, encryption and obfuscation technologies have announced an agreement of cooperative marketing involving promoting and reselling of their products worldwide.

Both companies have extensive customer bases with an interest in various services in the field of Intellectual Property protection, licensing and sales management. The expanded product portfolio will meet the most extensive requirements of clients who constantly experience the threat of revenue loss from software piracy.

Even in Western Europe and North America, regions where piracy the level is traditionally low, the software theft problem stands up again. Moreover, enterprises discover new markets in developing countries which have up to 80% of illegal software in their markets,” – said Michael Kalinichenko, CEO of StarForce Technologies. “Reliable, desirable and trustworthy protection schemas along with comprehensive and flexible DRM solutions are key elements for successful business development and expansion.”

InishTech CEO, Aidan Gallagher, commented “Strong code and IP protection is absolutely essential but this must be complemented by effective License Management. Software companies increasingly need to be able to sell their products in varying business models including subscription and usage based options. Flexible and secure License Management is a pre requisite to enable innovation. This is where InishTech can help.”
