SWFEncrypt for Mac OS X
Amayeta Limited has announced the release of SWF Encrypt 4.0, offered in February 2007 for Windows, as a Mac OS X application. The tool provides Adobe Flash Developers with advanced obfuscation techniques along side encryption technology to protect and secure their Flash ActionScript Code. The Adobe SWF File Format is an "Open File Format" which means there is no native protection and the contents of the SWF file can be viewed using Flash Decompiler Tools. These tools break open the resources that make up a SWF file and can display the full ActionScript Source Code. SWF Encrypt 4.0 shields ActionScript from Flash Decompilers and SWF hackers by encrypting and obfuscating the SWF whilst retaining its original functionality. The company has also released a Mac OS X version of SWC Encrypt 1.0, the an Encryption Tool for Flash Component Files. Pricing is $125 for a single user license, per product. The software requires Mac OS 10.2.x or Better.
