PACE Anti-Piracy has released a new version of their piracy protection software, Interlok. Version 2.1 of InterLok for the Macintosh has been completely rewritten to provide the most secure method of protecting software possible. According to PACE:
PACE Anti-Piracy Inc., a leader in the development of anti-piracy systems for software developers, today released version 2.1 of InterLok and InterLok Pro for both the Macintosh and Windows platforms. The updates add a number of important support and compatibility features, and include a wholly new copy protection architecture for InterLok for Macintosh. Software developers who protect their products with PACEis InterLok system should upgrade to version 2.1 to take advantage of these new features.
Version 2.1 of InterLok for Macintosh contains several new features, the most important of which are:
- Fundamental changes to InterLokis architecture have been implemented, making InterLok for Macintosh 2.1 even more secure than previous versions.
- Support has been added for alternative challenge/response and serial number dictionaries. Software developers can now create their own custom dictionaries or choose from standard, alternate, and numeric dictionaries supplied with the program.
- The PACE Interface has been extended to support API calls for invoking specific types of authorization. This feature can be useful for developers as an alternative to hot keys by providing a mechanism to programmatically force authorization.
Pricing for Interlok starts at US$499 for the basic version, and US$899 for the Pro version. You can find more information at the PACE Anti-Piracy web site.
