-, - (PressExposure) January 08, 2008 -- ElecKey is the complete solution for software copy protection and secure electronic software distribution (ESD). ElecKey provides software security that helps to protect your software applications against piracy. It allows you to deliver your software securely over the Internet, including traditional distribution channels such as CD-ROM, DVD, etc.
ElecKey provides a software-based locking system that causes the protected application to check a harddisk-based Key before operation. Whereas the Key is specific to a computer, the application is locked to operate only on a licensed computer. Besides the software protection capability, ElecKey provides licensing capability that allows you to create different types of software distribution and marketing options. For instance, creating a time-limited evaluation version, requiring software registration, and activation. Advanced licensing features include network-based centralized licensing (or floating license) and web services for automated licensing.
ElecKey also includes solutions to deal with challenging issues of managing protected applications. ElecKey creates end-user utilities along with the protected application. End-user utilities allow the user to easily transfer the license of the application from one to another computer. End-user utilities also provide solutions for backing up license, restoring license, and revoking license.
