INSIDE Secure and PACE anti-piracy team to efficiently protect software publishers’ IP

Two technology leaders combine their expertise in data security and software license protection to create a robust licensing platform

RSA(R) CONFERENCE, SAN FRANCISCO, February 14, 2011 – INSIDE Secure and PACE Anti-Piracy today announced that the two companies have collaborated to bring to market a portable, convenient, simple to use and robust security device to protect and manage multiple software licenses. The next-generation PACE iLok(TM) USB Smart Key, recently announced, combines the INSIDE Secure VaultIC(TM) security technology with PACE Anti-Piracy’s expertise in the development and licensing of anti-piracy systems for software publishers to deliver a smaller, stronger, more durable design with five times the capacity of the previous model.

“Many world-class software companies choose PACE technology for their software protection and license management needs, and we owe them reliable, best-in-class security to protect their intellectual property and their development investments,” said Andrew Kirk, vice president of business development for PACE Anti-Piracy. “Therefore, INSIDE Secure VaultIC security technology was an obvious choice for us because it offered an easy path to industry-leading security hardware while enabling us to reduce the footprint for the new iLok design.”

The patented iLok USB Smart Key stores and processes the secure data necessary to authorize protected software. The new iLok USB Smart Key can support up to 500 license authorizations from multiple software vendors in a single device, while also providing cross-platform compatibility, distribution flexibility and portability of authorization. The iLok solution remains the industry leader in software protection for software publishers while providing a secure, highly portable and easily managed license system for end-users.

“With its industry-leading security and low-power, compact design, our VaultIC security solutions are the right choice for easily adding security to portable devices like the iLok,” said Olivier Debelleix, business line manager for embedded security at INSIDE Secure. “The INSIDE VaultIC brings Common Criteria EAL4+/EAL5+ and FIPS 140-2 certified cryptography and secure data storage to the iLok USB Smart Key, and we are pleased that PACE has chosen it for this critical security application.”

VaultIC security modules offer a turnkey solution for integrating data security into a wide range of applications. Based on low-power, security certified hardware platforms, VaultIC solutions provide industry-leading security for the storage of keys, certificates and customer data. Their enhanced functionality offers designers a rich choice of interfaces and rapid computation of all standard cryptography algorithms while dramatically reducing or eliminating the need for custom development.

INSIDE Secure will be exhibiting the VaultIC technology in booth #353 at the RSA Conference 2011 being held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California from February 14 to 18.
