Software Piracy Risk Assessment
Every successful software vendor has some level of piracy. However, it can be difficult to quantify the extent of piracy for a particular product using company resources. V.i. Labs offers an objective risk assessment that quantifies a software vendor’s piracy risk using multiple components:
- Detailed analysis of the license enforcement crack approach
- Uncovering the true availability of cracked software within multiple piracy distribution channels
- Comparison with competitors’ product piracy activity
V.i. Labs combines the results of this assessment to determine a vendor’s piracy risk level and to offer recommendations and expectations for additional license enforcement, software protection and software intelligence strategies.
Software Intelligence Hosting
V.i. Labs’ CodeArmor Intelligence solution provides software vendors actionable intelligence on the use and misuse of their software. Although vendors can deploy CodeArmor on premise, V.i. Labs offers secure hosting services for the gateway server infrastructure as well as management of the compliance dashboard. This allows organizations to focus on their compliance programs and minimize the involvement of their IT departments.
License Compliance Services
V.i. Labs has partnered with Software Compliance Group to provide outsourced revenue recovery services. These services help both large and small organizations convert software intelligence into new sources of license revenue. Software Compliance Group leverages a global network of top tier law firms specializing in IP investigation and license compliance within the top 30 countries with high piracy rates. This service recovered $100 million in license revenue for software vendors in 2011.
