App password protects software titles, code
Excel Software has released an update to its software activation and security app, AppProtect. The utility locks software titles with computer ID and serial-number protection, or activates software via an automated activation server, depending on customer preference. It protects source code while allowing the protected software to work properly when using a secure license. Version 2.0 adds five additional options for layered protection, with each layer capable of working independently from the others, on both Mac and Windows files. It also adds static data files for Windows EXE files.
The software requires Mac OS X 10.1 or higher and works in Windows XP, Vista and 7. It costs $300 for a single license, $600 for a five-user site license and $900 for an unlimited-site license.
