My company has been using FlexNet Publisher as license system for a long time. Our customers are requesting a more web friendly license handling hosted by us rather than having them installing license servers (lmadmin) on their network. I have been browsing the Flexera site with very specific functions in mind and I just want to confirm I'm on the right track when looking at FlexNet Operations. We have imagined that both our web applications and desktop application start by asking the user to log in with a user of some sort that is approved by us. Users are then checked for assigned licenses in some way, may it be a personal license or access to a license pool associated with the users company. Basically the same functionality we get from local license file or connection to a license server, but as an online system that is not hosted at the users company. Can we achieve this with FlexNet Operations in some way? If so, what kind of modules do we need access to and how much of this is ready out-of-the-box?

My company uses FlexNet Embedded for securing our software which up until now has been mainly desktop applications on Windows. We don't use FlexNet Operations since we have created our own tool for license management, but we very much rely on the security that comes from the license file (local file or distributed via FlexNet Publisher). We are now getting feedback from our customers to have more online presence. Is there an equivalent option for us to use if we would make a web app and wanted to secure it to the same level as our desktop apps?
