SmartFlow Professional 2017 is an entry-level, cloud-based anti-piracy solution offering unique capabilities for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) looking to establish or expand their license compliance program. SmartFlow Professional helps businesses identify the use of unlicensed versions of their software and track actionable data that can be used for negotiation or legal action against IP theft and copyright infringement.

This subscription-based software as a service (SaaS) is hosted online by SCS through the secure Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform. It uses a simplified version of the SmartFlow software development kit (SDK) that can be easily integrated into most software applications running on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux platforms. Standard features include SmartFlow Insights, a tool for data enrichment, and Wi-Fi geolocation, which provides detailed information on the location of unlicensed users.

Wildfires in Santa Rosa

It is hard to believe that just two days after the SmartFlow Anti-Piracy and License Compliance Summit wrapped up, the same beautiful Fountaingrove area of Santa Rosa where we all came together at Keysight Technologies has been so completely devastated. We want to thank Keysight for hosting this incredible event and extend our thoughts and support for all those impacted by the wildfires.

Summit Recap

The 4th annual SmartFlow Anti-Piracy Compliance Summit was an overwhelming success! Special thanks to Keysight Technologies for hosting and to Kevin T. Carroll, chief counsel to the U.S. Council on Transnational Organized Crime and a member of the Senior Executive Service (SES-III), for bringing a new focus on the important issue of IP theft and software piracy.

To quickly summarize, there was lively discussion on the issue of piracy in China, which is specifically targeting foreign companies in the areas of biomedical engineering, semiconductors, energy, defense, and other high-tech industries. Cyber security was also addressed. Corporate espionage is conducted by infiltrating companies, establishing trust, and then taking advantage of that trust. The third topic of discussion was data collection and issues surrounding the upcoming European General Data Protection Regulation.

Various strategies for successfully dealing with piracy, cybersecurity, and data collection were discussed and will be shared in the form of blogs and white papers in the future.
