Euronext NL0000400653 GTO
The CODiE Awards hold the distinction of being the technology industry’s only peer-reviewed awards program. In the Digital Rights Management Solution category, the SIIA uses rigorous criteria to evaluate and recognize the solution that best allows the secure electronic purchase, distribution, and subsequent use of software and/or information. While the CODiE awards tradition extends more than 25 years, this year marks the first time a cloud based offering has been recognized as the industry’s best Digital Rights Management (DRM) solution, a true testament to the future of cloud based content delivery.
“For decades, the CODiE Awards has recognized the most innovative technology products and services,” noted SIIA President Ken Wasch. “This year’s digital content winners continue that tradition with their commitment to excellence and visionary approach to the digital rights marketplace. On behalf of SIIA, I congratulate them and look forward to the impact their contributions will have on digital content in the years ahead.”
Out of 89 nominated products and services, SafeNet’s Sentinel Cloud (sentinelcloud.com) was selected as the CODiE Award winner for the quick and easy way it enables SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) providers to build versatile service catalogs, provision and authorize user access, measure service usage, and seamlessly adapt their service offerings to new and emerging environments.
“For over 25 years, SafeNet has been providing independent software vendors with new technologies to address their emerging anti-piracy, IP protection, license enablement, and license management challenges,” said Prakash Panjwani, senior vice president and general manager of SafeNet’s Software Rights Management division. “We are honored that the SIAA and our peers have recognized the seamless nature, technological innovation, and value that Sentinel Cloud brings to our customers as they migrate their businesses to the cloud.”
