A single-user license grants one user the right to use the software license. For each single user license you purchase, you will receive a unique product key. This license may not be used by multiple people.

A concurrent-use license, also called a “network” or “floating” license, is tied to a network. The License Manager or License Administrator software is installed on a license server on the company network. The product can be installed on as many client machines as desired. The product usage is controlled by the license server and is limited to the number of concurrent seats that were purchased.

For further information on licensing, review our Licensing topic in our Support Central page.

If the single user or concurrent-use licenses do not fit your business model, contact us and we would be glad to create a solution that will fit your needs.
