SOFTWARE SECURITY & LICENSING PLATFORM
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.Read More
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
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.
use everything we offer
or only what you need
Leave software protection and license management to us - that's what we do. Your focus can be on developing great products.
We put the control in your hands. Design your security and licensing model to work for your business.
Multiple License Types
Offer the type of licenses that meet your business needs: perpetual, subscription, network-based, trial, or timed.
You define when a license is required, and how it can be activated.
Expand your user base with a lower entry cost. Subscriptions are easy to distribute and manage.
Demo at Launch Time
Hook your customer at first launch - choose to allow a trial period and specify what the user's options will be once the demonstration period is over.
Fast, Secure Database
Speed and security are serious business - we take care of that for you, processing millions of license activations a week.
Securely sign your content - this service is available independent of software protection.
Proven Track Record
Our protection stands strong for years, not hours or days.
Our system uses encrypted channels to protect your software locally; you will never need to send us unprotected source files.
Our customers receive full documentation, quality support, and access to our engineering team.
Request and download custom reports - even track usage in real-time.
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.
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.
The iLok is portable secure worry free
Take your licenses with you!
Reasons To Love the iLok
- It's portable - the iLok holds hundreds of licenses on one device. Customers keep their licenses in their pocket, not on their computer.
- It's secure - the iLok hardware is the safest and most secure license location and has never been exploited.
- It's worry free - no codes to remember (or lose) - just activate to the iLok and go! Plus we make it simple to recover from damaged or lost hardware.
