ProfileCylynt was founded in 2014 as SmartFlow Compliance Solutions with the mission to address the problem of software piracy, which for years software companies have faced alone. Government initiatives, copyright laws, and protection strategies have been largely ineffective in stopping the theft of billions of dollars in intellectual property.
Cylynt’s software-as-a-service (SaaS) based anti-piracy, license compliance, and software monetization technology protects the intellectual property of the world’s leading software companies and enables them to stop unauthorized use of their products and drive revenue by converting unlicensed users into paying customers.
The company’s data-driven approach to software utilization helps clients make informed business decisions, correct licensing problems, and protect customers from unfair competition. SmartFlow Enterprise, Cylynt’s flagship product, collects precise telemetry data that provides business intelligence and sales information and organizes, analyzes, and interprets that data into meaningful market insights and quality lead generation. Cylynt’s license compliance platform can improve productivity, reduce operational costs, and guard against downtime by preventing malware attacks and protecting brand names and reputations.
Cylynt is the brainchild of co-founders Ted Miracco, who has 30 years of experience in defense electronics, electronic design automation, and cybersecurity, and Chris Luijten, who has 15 years of experience in anti-piracy and software compliance enforcement. The company has offices in Los Angeles, California and Dublin, Ireland.
