History and Products
Revulytics was founded in 2002 around interest in a software anti-piracy product. It then developed and introduced a different product in 2008 (originally named CodeArmor Intelligence) to report on the unlicensed use of client software; this product is now called Revulytics Compliance Intelligence, or RCI. RCI offers client companies the insight to understand their software piracy, and optionally enables conversion of unlicensed users into paying customers. Since 2010, Revulytics has supported its customers’ compliance programs in generating more than $2.1 billion in new revenue. The RCI dashboard interface is built on Salesforce.
