We recommend you switching to the CRYPTO-BOX System to replace your discontinued product. We "always stay on top" and support new operating systems and platforms. Not only Windows, but also Linux, macOS, ARM, etc. as soon as they come onto the market. We can also provide implementation support for a quick migration.
Please contact us to talk about your project!
Smarx Cloud Security requires implementation into existing web servers and some knowledge in programming PHP, Java or ASP.NET to keep it flexible and customizable to your individual requirements.
MARX provides consulting and customized implementation. Please contact us.
Support for servers built either on PHP, JSP/Java, ASP.NET or WIF (Windows Identity Foundation) technology provides maximum compatibility to existing server structures.
The WEB API client plugin supports Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera under Windows, as well as Firefox under Linux. Support for Max OS X and mobile platforms (Android, iOS – network mode) is in progress.
The Professional Protection Kit allows you to obtain the most recent development tools for the CRYPTO-BOX for a one-time fee.
Alternatively you can buy a Support Level Option, which entitles you to download the latest Protection Kit Update from our support section during the time the support option is valid (one year or two years), plus getting free technical support from the MARX Team for this period.
Please contact us or request a call-back and we will take care of updating your account.
The Evaluation Kit (which includes the Professional Protection Kit) can be tested for 45 days without obligation.
If you need more time, just contact us to extend the evaluation period. Otherwise, return the Evaluation Kit with paid postage and you will receive your money back. Companies from EU countries will get the Evaluation Kit on account and have 45 days before remitting or payment.
Usually, you will receive the Professional Protection Kit with your first order (Evaluation Kit or Starter Kit).
Should you already have an older Protection Kit, but you want to take advantage of the features offered in the latest version, you can order the latest version in our Shop.

I some cases Antivirus scanners - especially when heuristic analysis is used/activated - will treat the protected application as infected (False Positive).
Reason: Our AutoCrypt wrapper uses methods to encrypt and protect the application which are similar to methods sometimes used by malware to infect applications. Here are several recommendations to resolve this:
Open the existing project in the Smarx Application Framework (SxAF), and choose the application you want to update in the tree view under “Applications”. Now click the button “Update Application”, select the new application you want to protect, and click “OK”. Then click the “Protect Application” button to protect and store the new protected application.
NOTE: Do not use the "Application Checksum" DataObject if you plan to preserve compatibility with further updates! Otherwise, an update of the CRYPTO-BOX is required (e.g. with Remote Update).
AutoCrypt allows to protect Windows 32/64Bit executables and DLLs/.NET-based executables. For Linux, a command line based version of AutoCrypt is available which allows to protect 32 and 64 bit executables.
Protection of RAD XE 64Bit applications with AutoCrypt was added to PPK 5.90. Since PPK 7.0, protection of applications based on the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF.NET) is supported.
If your application cannot be protected with AutoCrypt: please contact us - in almost every case we will find a solution!
The command line version of AutoCrypt, AC_Tool.exe provides a high grade of automation: the protection process can be controlled within other applications or batch-files.
Furthermore with SmrxProg.exe there is another command line tool available which takes care of CRYPTO-BOX formatting. Please refer to the AutoCrypt Application Notes, chapter 7 for more details.
Please make sure that you have selected the correct CRYPTO-BOX hardware profile. The standard profile “cbu_demo” works only with the unit contained in the Evaluation Kit. For your customer specific CRYPTO-BOX, choose "Import profile" to import the profile from the CDROM you received along with your customer specific units from MARX.
Refer to the AutoCrypt Application Notes, chapter 2.3 for more details.

If you receive a “Protection DLL is missing or corrupted” message:
During protection process, a file fmteos.dll (resp. fmteos64.dll for 64 bit applications) is generated in the same folder where AutoCrypt has stored your protected application. Please make sure to deliver this file together with your protected application.
