Piracy is illegal hence software companies go to great lengths to ensure that their software products cannot be reproduced illegally. Software protection, also known as content protection, copy obstruction, copy prevention and copy restriction refer to techniques used for preventing the reproduction of software.
Nobody wants their software hacked or cracked. I am sure if you make a product yourself, that you would feel negatively in a bad way since you put a lot of effort into creating a good software, only to be hacked, redistributed and spread around illegally by hackers.
There are already software protection products that are on sale but chances are some of them still get hacked. There are others though that have yet to be hacked and that is where you should start looking if you plan to get a software protection product.
From a technical standpoint, it would seem theoretically impossible to completely prevent users from making copies of softwares. Yet, even though you cannot possibly win this battle, the only thing left for you to do is to try and prevent it as much as possible.
Thanks to software protection systems, it can prevent that from escalating into something much worse. Software anti-tamper methods are used to safeguard license protection and license management.
During the New Year, I picked out a random name from the list of followers in Google Friend Connect and those who are subscribed to my blog’s RSS feeds. I picked out a winner, named Rica from the Google Friend Connect and sent her a message asking for her email address because I will send the license key of the AudialsOne software that she just won.
It has been more than 2 weeks now and I still have not received any reply from her so I will pick another random name tomorrow so for those who have not yet subscribe to the feeds or followed me in Google Friend Connect, here is your chance to do so to get a chance to win that AudialsOne license key. It is a great software for saving movies and music to your PC whilst you stream for them.
If you are looking for an effective backup software for units run by Windows operating system, I am selling two professional licenses for the Handy Backup software. Each license for the professional version costs $89 ($10 off from its original price) so let me know if you are interested.
The new version also caters to Windows 7, which was just released by Microsoft late last month. The licenses are lifetime. Once you register it with the Handy Backup software, any new version will only require an update.
Disk image backup. This function creates complete hard disk drive backup including the operating system, all applications and settings, so the system backup can be quickly restored after a failure.
Secure backup transferring In addition to backing up to DVD/CD, LAN and FTP, the utility can back up to SFTP servers.
Database backup. The application allows you to back up database tables without stopping the service (hot database backup), using ODBC connectivity.
Backup options. You can enable automatic backup encryption and compression, to make all backup procedures comply with your company’s security and data handling requirements.
Task-based interface. All backup, restore and data synchronization tasks can be scheduled and configured to run as Windows service, which makes all backups unnoticeable and not interfering with the work.
