Sentinel Fit

Small Footprint, secure licensing product

Sentinel Fit is the industry's smallest commercial licensing solution. Combining Gemalto Sentinel award-winning software protection features with sophisticated, web-based entitlement management capabilities, Sentinel Fit is ideal for embedded systems, supporting virtually all possible boards and microcontrollers available today and is free from CPU and operating system constraints.
  • Ultra-Low Footprint
    The Sentinel Fit runtime is designed to be used in environments which are highly constrained from a resource perspective.
  • Highly Portable
    Source code is provided to enable deploying the Sentinel Fit runtime onto a myriad of different environments and platforms, across OS variants, CPU architectures and board types.
  • Feature Based Software Licensing
    Sentinel Fit integration allows license rights to grant (or deny) access to different areas of functionality. The license rights are delivered through a tamper-proof license that provides various license models such as perpetual or time-based.
  • Secure Tamper-Proof Licensing
    Licenses are secured leveraging industry standard RSA asymmetric cryptography and can be remotely updated in the field.
