VirtaMed's main product is its medical simulators. In such hardware centric scenarios, licensing focuses on machine-based authorization rather than user-based.
Previously, licensing and activation was based on USB dongles. Although such dongles did perform their main task, they were inherently inflexible, since every license change, inevitably required a new dongle being configured and shipped to the end customer.
VirtaMed required a more adaptable, online-based licensing and entitlements framework. Developing and hosting an in-house licensing solution was quickly ruled out, and SLASCONE stepped in.
