STEALTHbits Welcomes Shift in Software Licensing Models, Capitalizes on Licensing Flexibility

Sponsored by Businesswire

STEALTHbits Technologies, Inc. a cybersecurity software company focused
on protecting an organization’s sensitive data and the credentials
attackers use to steal that data, today announced their commitment to
remain flexible and in line with customer preference with concern to
software licensing. In an industry infatuated with conversion to
subscription pricing due to often unnecessarily high overhead, rare
occurrences of profitability, and thus weak cash flows, STEALTHbits’
high-strength financial standing and demonstrated longevity have
continued to allow customers the flexibility to choose between capital
and operational budget pools when making purchasing decisions. This has
proven to be particularly important to customers in 2019 as Varonis
Systems, STEALTHbits’ primary competitor in the Data Access Governance
market, has migrated to a subscription model, frustrating customers and
prospects alike that cannot afford or lack the desire to commit to
larger overall payments over extended periods of time.

“Subscription pricing is nothing new and is certainly both a viable
licensing strategy and a positive for consumers in the right
circumstances,” said Steve Cochran, STEALTHbits’ Founder and Chief
Executive Officer. “But to make it a requirement to doing business seems
an unnecessary burden to place on the customer.” Cochran continued, “We
get why so many vendors are moving to subscription models. This is what
investors and the financial community want to support higher valuations
for their portfolio companies. We’re fortunate and proud to be able to
work with whichever model the customer prefers though, and with so many
vendors now fighting over OpEx budget, we’ve actually seen an increased
appetite for perpetual pricing over the past year, which we’ve certainly
been a beneficiary of.”
