Software deployment over HTTP/HTTP(S)

We are a large enterprise and we have consultants across the globe. I am looking at advise on how I can have Software deployed to these consultants who hold laptops via the internet without having to share the installer or license keys to them.

Connecting them via VPN back to the CORP network and having them install is a lengthy and tedious option.

What software are you using and needing to install?

Most commercial software requires some kind of license key to permit installation and confirm it is a legitimate copy.

Usually one deploys licence server that for example can hand out floating licences (very cost-efficient if it is really around the globe - while europe sleeps asia partys)

Wherever we have the ability to have a central licensing server which permits this funcationality this has been leveraged. We are looking at various products from Adobe to Microsoft to Oracle to Various others.

I understand there are products that need keys and some come already embedded and some are substantiated with paper licenses.

My question revolves specifically on a deployment method to safeguard the executable and the license key.
