CRYPTO-BOX® macOS Network Server and Java Library Updates

The new Smarx®OS4Mac package allows developers to add strong CRYTPO-BOX® hardware based protection to their applications running under macOS.

CRYPTO‑BOX® Server: Stability and Installer Update

With only one CRYPTO-BOX per network you can encrypt and protect your application and determine how often your protected application is permitted to run in the entire network.

Protection Kit 'Summer 2019': Software Protection with a Snap

Looking for a quick solution for protecting your application and the release date is already upon you? Bypass spending your valuable time implementing a customized solution. How?

The CRYPTO‑BOX® and Virtual Environments? That's easy!

The CRYPTO-BOX provides a strong hardware based software licensing. Particularly in virtualized environments your end-users are often faced with the issue that there is no direct access to the USB port of the target system.

Software Protection

The protection of intellectual property has the highest priority for software businesses. Loss of revenues through software piracy and counterfeit licenses climbed to the highest level ever in 2017. Almost 40% of all computer software worldwide was illegally shared or stolen.
The CRYPTO-BOX protection system secures revenues from selling software licenses and protects return of investment. With the CRYPTO-BOX hardware based protection or the AutoCrypt SL software licensing with SOLO server, we offer two strong solutions against loss of revenue due to piracy.
The CRYPTO-BOX encryption microprocessor stops software duplication, cloning and reverse engineering. The protected program cannot be used without the proper software security dongle. Automated or API implementations are available for customer specific authentication strategies.
The AutoCrypt SL and SOLO Server combination offers a variety of licensing options. Activation and prolongation of licenses is done via the SOLO Server. The powerful sales platform includes a fully featured e-Commerce module for selling software online 24/7.
And the benefits of protected software? It keeps your customers happy with genuine products, efficient customer support and always updated software versions.


License Management

License Management with the CRYPTO-BOX effectively prevents infringements of license agreements and generates follow-up sales. Software leasing, time limitation, or activation of different modules of the protected software are smart distribution scenarios. Secure remote updates and safe remote activation guarantee customer satisfaction.
The License Control System (LCS) controls and limits the number of application licenses in networks - only one CRYPTO-BOX per network is required.


Cloud Security

Cloud computing makes IT services available on demand. It minimizes up-front costs for IT infrastructures and storage of data. However, cloud computing poses privacy concerns because the service provider can access the data that is in the cloud at any time.
With the Cloud Security Toolkit only registered users with a valid CRYPTO-BOX have access to the secured web portal. This online authentication for web based applications provides secure access options. For instance the "pay-as-you-go" distribution model with access to certain services or software updates for paying customers only. Another typical application can be access to administration panels for authorized service personnel.


Document and Media Protection

"Document Protection" and "Media Protection" secure the distribution of digital media contents. Only users with a valid CRYPTO-BOX have access to protected documents, graphics, web-pages, or multimedia contents. In addition to the protection of the software, users can also protect the documentation of their application with the same CRYPTO-BOX.

Flexible licensing options for the protected contents, such as setting an expiration date or allow printing, can be varied. Digital rights management includes secure updates, upgrading, extending or revoking licenses.

Document Protection can be adapted to customer specific requirements, such as individual licensing/DRM models or watermarks. We deliver the tools and know how for your secure distribution strategy.
