Licensing

Overview

A Smartcrypt Enterprise Manager (SEM) needs a license from PKWARE to operate.  Evaluation licenses can be obtained via your PKWARE Sales or Support representative.  Permanent licenses are delivered during order fulfillment. Once your order has been processed by PKWARE, license information will automatically propagate to your Smartcrypt Manager instance.

Isolated Mode

If you are running an offline or non-Internet connected SEM you will need to manually generate a license request. Press Import License on the main licensing page.  Email the resulting information to your PKWARE representative and they will return a license file that matches your SEM Identity. Import this JSON text to license your instance and associated clients.
