WHAT WE OFFER

Software security is an ongoing battle, and security and license management go hand in hand; you can't have one without the other.

PACE has been winning this battle for over 30 years.

Our sole focus is handling the security and providing the licensing platform so you don’t have to - you can focus on developing great products for your customers.

Our Ecosystem

Flexible Security Design

We help you create the perfect level of protection. Apply unique protection per product - from low levels to high levels that haven't been broken in years. Require our secure iLok dongle™ or allow license activation to a computer.

Multiple Ways to Deliver

Deliver licenses to your customers quickly and easily. Use our secure customer web portal, make and deliver license activation codes, or use our API. For trials, you can even include a trial license in your protected binary.

Licensing Models You Define

Use our design portal to make licenses for any business scenario. Want to offer Subscriptions? Perpetuals? Trials and Rentals? Need support for Network Based Licenses? We have you covered. You can even take over the complete activation flow to conceal the use of our services.

Licenses Users Can Manage

Once your customers get their license, you want them to be self-sufficient. They can manage their licenses using our free license management app, and that means less support for you.

Business is booming for our customers

More than 32 million licenses

STRONG SECURITY

MEANS BIGGER PROFITS

Well-protected source code is your bread and butter. Releasing products that get cracked within weeks or even hours gets you nowhere. With PACE, you know that we are continually working to stay well ahead of those trying to defeat your product's protection.

Binary & Content Protection

Your product's sales requirements drive the level of protection you use to protect it.

Our tools allow you to dial up or down the security level per product that you release. With the flexibility to apply different levels of protection to your binary, you can balance security with performance or the end-user experience. We help you use just the right level to balance intellectual property protection and ease of use.

Design & Support Portal

Along with the use of our tools, everything you need to sign and protect your binary, distribute licenses, and support your customers can be done on our secure web portal, PACE Central.

We provide license management services through APIs and our secure web portal. You can easily create licensing protocols and save them as templates to use over and over again. The ability to deliver and support your licenses is always just a click away.

  • FEATURES
    • Easily define and customize products
    • Create and distribute licenses
    • Drag & drop functionality
    • Secure portal access

License Activation & Management

Your protected binary will require a license to run. Licenses can be activated to our proprietary hardware dongle, the iLok, or optionally to a computer.

If a valid license is not found on launch, the Activation Experience can help the user find their license without leaving the launch process. Activation codes and using an already deposited license are supported, allowing for a convenient and simple activation process.

Your customers can easily manage their licenses with our free app, iLok License Manager. Activating, deactivating, or moving licenses is as simple as drag and drop. Detailed information on each license is displayed. Keeping track of licenses, iLoks, and computers is easy to do with the iLok License Manager.

  • FEATURES
    • In-app license activation
    • Custom branding
    • Drag & drop functionality
    • Simple management
