SmartFlow Enterprise 2017 Configurable Data Collection Functionality Enables Compliance With GDPR

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – Aug. 30, 2017 – SmartFlow Compliance Solutions, a leading developer of anti-piracy and software license compliance technology, announces SmartFlow Enterprise 2017 with a unique new configurable data collection functionality that enables customers to comply with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

GDPR, which will take effect May 25, 2018, makes major changes to all of Europe’s privacy laws and enables regulators to fine noncompliant companies up to four percent of their global turnover or 20 million Euros, whichever is greater.

“GDPR will have serious implications for companies both inside and outside the EU,” said Ted Miracco, CEO of SmartFlow. “Regardless of where your company is located, if you collect and/or process the personal data of individuals living and working within the EU, you will be subject to the new regulation. SmartFlow Enterprise provides the essential functionality that will enable our customers to control how they handle complex personal information and protect people’s privacy.”

SmartFlow Enterprise 2017 is a complete solution that includes business analytics, customizable reporting, an open application programing interface, (API) and integration with Salesforce.com. SmartFlow’s technology is protecting over $15 billion in licensed software applications worldwide and has been shipped in over 500 products.

In addition to configurable data collection, SmartFlow Enterprise 2017 offers several innovative new features that provide a comprehensive approach for fighting software piracy and license compliance case management.

Truly Open License Compliance Solution

SmartFlow is the only truly open license compliance solution on the market, enabling users to integrate with a wide variety of data sources, including SmartFlow, proprietary, and third-party sources, to drive their compliance program. Customers’ own software activation or registration data can be correlated with usage data from SmartFlow’s software development kit (SDK), or, for example, Microsoft’s Azure Application Insights. This unique open approach enables enterprises to maximize the impact of their data and reliably build cases against entities using customers’ software outside the provisions of the licensing terms.

SmartFlow Analytics

SmartFlow Analytics is a best-in-class business intelligence and custom reporting module that helps customers make sense of the patterns that emerge from the volumes of the data being collected by their SmartFlow compliance management software. Completely customizable dashboards provide insights so that more informed decisions can be made about addressing non-compliance issues.

API and Salesforce Integration

SmartFlow Enterprise 2017 supports custom regions, multiple roles/responsibilities, custom event types, and advanced data hashing and privacy controls. Enterprise also includes an open application programing interface (API) on the gateway, as well as complete integration with Salesforce.com.

Pricing and Availability

SmartFlow Enterprise 2017 is available immediately. SmartFlow technology is licensed on a subscription basis, starting at $25,000 USD per year. For detailed pricing or more information, contact info@smartflowcompliance.com.
