Radbound Medical Center chooses LM-X and dongles for maximum security and flexibility

About Radbound University Medical Center

Radboud University Medical Center is at the forefront of developing software for the analysis of medical images. Their activities are aimed at improving healthcare and, consequently, the health of individual patients.
Driven by high standards of quality, they deliver operational excellence by investing time and effort in proper research, education, and patient care.

The business challenge and the solution

Radboud University Medical Center needed to find a way of protecting their applications against misuse and feature-rich LM-X License Manager together with dongles supplied by X-Formation proved to create a powerful solution that fits these requirements for software security very well: LM-X by providing protection of the licensed software and dongles by offering additional protection and flexibility as driverless, portable devices.
The company had not been using any solution for protecting software against piracy before and decided to use LM-X with dongles because their fellow company had been already using these solutions for some time and recommended them as highly reliable ones.
The dongles helped them securely deliver their software for use and turned out to provide hassle-free configuration that makes license deployment and management easier than ever before both for them, and for their end users. With maximum security and flexibility provided by the two solutions, they could easily protect each copy of their software.

Summary

Overall, they are very satisfied with the solution delivered by X-Formation: choosing LM-X and dongles turned out to be an easy and practical way of protecting software from unauthorized use, helped them maintain highest level of security and met all their needs for superior software protection.
