PRESS RELEASE – PACE ANTI-PIRACY, INC. - iLok USB-C Announced - Offering Professionals Even More Options To Keep Licenses Safe

For Immediate Release
Eden 5.0 - PACE Anti Piracy

April 27, 2021, San Jose, California.

PACE Anti-Piracy, Inc. have today announced the USB-C version of the third generation iLok USB.

In addition to the iLok USB-A, PACE is now offering the iLok USB-C which uses the USB Type-C connector. Both iLok devices hold up to 1,500 authorizations—3x more than before—and deliver twice the transfer speed of the second generation iLok USB. Plus, it’s sleeker, smaller, and more secure, with a full metal jacket (made from durable aluminum) that won’t split or crack from normal use.

The iLok USB is fully backward compatible with previous versions – so all software developed for use with a 2nd generation iLok will continue to work with a 3rd generation iLok USB-A or USB-C. And with the addition of Zero Downtime (ZDT) protection, you will always have access to your licenses if your iLok USB is lost, damaged, or stolen.

Since its release over 20 years ago, the iLok USB hardware device has never been compromised.

The design of the 3rd generation iLok USB-A and USB-C are a huge step up from previous versions. The internal components are ingeniously small, packed into their metal case using methods that make duplication virtually impossible. And fewer components mean fewer points of failure once the device is being used in the field.

Many people asked for a USB-C version of the iLok, and here it is. More computers are entering the market with USB Type-C ports, and our new iLok USB-C allows users with USB-C ports to use our licensing key without the need of additional adapters. Along with our Fusion Anti-Tamper technology, the 3rd generation iLok USB-A and iLok USB-C provide a publisher with the most secure tools in the industry. Period.

Andrew KirkVice President of PACE Anti-Piracy, Inc.

Whether you’re purchasing your first iLok device or want to consolidate licenses from older keys, iLok USB makes it easy to take all of your software authorizations with you, wherever you go.
