Excel launches licensing titles LicenseSupport, AppProtect

Software protects user's software titles

Excel software has announced two new applications geared toward software protection, LicenseSupport 1.0 and AppProtect 1.0. LicenseSupport provides tools for managing customer licenses for protected applications or documents.  Users can securely provide an activation code, reset a license or block an activated license. Additional capabilities enable refund distribution or changes to the number of allowed activations for each serial number.

The software works in conjunction with Excel's QuickLicense or QuickLicense Server. It stores customer records, maintains historical logs of customer support occurrences and uses secure login procedures.

LicenseSupport 1.0 also works with AppProtect 1.0, an app which provides protection to applications through an activation process tied to a selected software title. Vendors can set up a new title with either a computer-specific password number and a unique password from the vendor, with an optional link to the vendor's web site, or it can provide an 'enter serial number' dialog.

Both of Excel's new applications require Mac OS X 10.1. LicenseSupport 1.0 costs $400 for a single-user license and is available in a site-license edition. AppProtect 1.0 carries a price of $300 for a single-user license.
