PACE Anti-Piracy, Inc. has announced the imminent launch of iLok Cloud, which they say is an entirely new approach to software license protection. They tell us that, with iLok Cloud, software publishers can offer their users quick and easy access to their licenses from any computer with an Internet connection. iLok Cloud has the same level of robust security as the current iLok USB smart key, which will remain as an option along with machine-based licenses.
A spokesperson told us, "Upon launching iLok Cloud protected software, the users will be prompted to provide their username and password. That's it--the iLok protected software is now ready for use, without any dongles or having to use a specific authorized computer. It's easy, iLok Cloud protected software can be used anywhere, and iLok Cloud takes the risk of lost or damaged iLok USB smart keys and computers out of the equation."
Pricing and Availability:
iLok Cloud will be available to software publishers as an option when updating their products in early November. Software protected with iLok Cloud should be available to end users in early 2018.
