The SafeNet products are already available in hourly pricing
models on AWS Marketplace and the
new annual pricing models make budgeting and forecasting software expenses easier

way to quickly leverage SafeNet security offerings on demand.

model allows customers to purchase encryption and key management hourly, as
before, or annually, to align their encryption budget with their steady-state
and on-demand workloads."
