InishTech to relaunch Microsoft’s SLP services
InishTech, a new startup formed through the collaboration between Microsoft IP Ventures and Enterprise Ireland, is entering the Irish market to relaunch Microsoft Software Licensing and Protection (SLP) Services.
The Dublin-based new startup has assumed the responsibility for the existing customer base, acquired all rights to SLP Services and licensed related intellectual property from Microsoft. It will continue to provide, expand and grow the service to independent software vendors (ISVs) and developers.
The services offered by the new company is expected to allow software publishers and ISVs to license products that support and enable new business models and protect their software investment through code transformation, license compliance and product activation.
InishTech will take on more than 120 customers on board and will continue to work with other product groups, business teams and divisions within Microsoft to expand the use of the SLP Services solution.
Microsoft will have an ongoing minority interest in the company and is expected to continue to offer product service and support to customers for an initial period to ensure a smooth transition.
Gallagher, CEO and co-founder of InishTech, said: Software publishers have invested thousands of hours into their products and InishTech will help provide code protection and flexible licensing without adversely impacting their product development life cycle or compromising the functionality of their applications. We believe SLP Services is the quickest to deploy, easiest to use and most feature-rich solution in the market today.
